And it's strange.
And I'm not cheering.
Have we taught him everything he needs to know? Will he make the right choices? Even when we're not looking over his shoulder? Brandon is an amazing kid and I need to have more faith in him. But it's going to take some time. Thankfully, we still have some time. Because the process of letting go will still take approximately eight years. Phew. Maybe I just need to chill.
Right now, Brandon's life revolves around BMX, skateboarding, Harry Potter, Magic the Gathering (a card game), peanut butter sandwiches, soccer, basketball, and video games. He is still doing great in his piano lessons. We love listening to him play. He is smart, witty, helpful, strong-minded, athletic, faithful, and curious. He finished his Bear requirements in cub scouts and has moved up to Webelos.
Things are never quiet with Brandon around.
I can't imagine our family without him.
Love you, B-train!
