Some Great News

This is a photo that was taken of Brandon just before his grade 8 graduation. He had just turned 14. Last year he went to high school and though he had always disliked school while he was in the elementary grades, he loved it. He worked hard and was moved from regular to advance math at Christmas and did an excellent job. He passed into grade 10 with a nice round figure for the year's average.

Last week he got a special invitation to attend the grade 12 graduation on October 20th. When I first found out, I was a bit baffled. Why would a grade 10 student be invited to a grade 12 grad.

Well, it seems my grandson made the grade 9 honor roll last year and he will be presented with a special award the night of graduation. We don't know yet how many guests he can have but I'm hoping I can go and see him accept his honor.


  1. Congratulations to him. He is doing great and I know you are proud, as you should be!
    How are you all doing? Is your Mom progressing? Are you feeling all right? And what about your hubby? Hope you are all doing well!

  2. Congratulations. It's not how you start things but how you finish them.

  3. Congratulations Brandon! Mary that's excellent news. I have no doubt you'll be there to watch too.

  4. Hello dear Mary,

    You're not the only one who's been AWOL...sigh...just not enough hours in a day to do everything I want to do. And I've been wanting to call you as well and hopefully tomorrow I'll manage to do so!!! E was off on holiday all last week and he seemed to always be around! Grrr! lol We have so much to catch up on.

    Good for Brandon for doing so well when he was in grade 9 and now will be receiving a special award for being on the honour roll:-) It's no wonder you're so proud, he's come a long way!!

    Hope that you and Dwight feel better real soon, no fun having the flu:-( I had a touch of it for a couple of days but it seems to have gone already. xoxo

  5. Congratulations to Brandon, I know you are very proud.
