All about Brandon!!!



With all the stuff going on with Ashley, poor big brother Brandon has been a little left out!! He has been such a trooper through all of this and has been left home and feeling a little abandoned. We didn't want him to miss school anymore than he had to, he had missed almost the whole second week of school because of his asthma and a cold. So missing more would have really put him behind. His teacher has been so great and helpful through it all and has allowed him to make up all his work. He had a hard time at the beginning of school. He has been in 3 different schools in the past 3 years. Not because we move, but the district consolidated the schools so that the K-2 got to one school, the 3-5 are in another and then on to middle school. But his Kindergarten year they were in transition and he went to Steven's and then they all moved to his school last year. So he has been moved around a lot and he is like his dad and doesn't like change much!! He loves school but would rather be at the same school all the time!! I went to the same school from K-12 grade and never had to deal with that. He is a good boy and he and Ashley are so very close, and all of this illness and her getting cut on didn't set to well with Big Protective Brother. He loves Star Wars, Transformers and Godzilla!! All boy he is!!! He is also into in video games, more than he should be but he gets all his homework done before he can play and no video games on Sunday at all!! He is a great big brother and a very polite young man and knows no stranger!! He will talk to a fence post this one!! lol
He has had a hard time with Sissy being sick, thank goodness my sister, Toni and my mom stepped up and really took good care of him and this last round he got to be home where all his stuff was at and he dealt with it much better. I just wanted to tell you about my sweet boy, He has been through the ringer too and he deserves some face time on Mommy's blog!!!! I love you buddy!! I'm so blessed to have you in my life!!!
Hugs, Momma
