Tonight, we spent the evening driving to the regional school offices for Bryan. He is an AVID student in his school. The program teaches proper study habits, how to take notes in school and his grades show the difference. Last year he was receiving 1's and 2's in many of his grades. This year, the first trimester he has shown his grades take off and he has now rid himself of the dreaded 1's and 2's. He now has mostly A's and B's and just one C. I am so proud of all the hard work he has put into his studies and improvement. Because of all ofhis hard work he has gone to Saint Mary's College to receive a tour of the campus and then enjoyed wathcing a basketball game all on a school night. He returned home far after midnight, but even though he was tired the next morning he didn't bat an eye when I told him it was time to go to school.
Today I am proud of my son who has shown courage and hard work. Tonight it paid off in a small way as he received letters from members of the US Congress, US House of Representatives, Mayors and certificates from all. He learned what hard work in his studies can get him and now he excitedly talks about going to college. He said: "Mom, I'm sorry it's going to be so expensive." I told him it will be worth every single penny!!!
Today he feels like a million pennies!!!! Congratulations Bryan!!!
