Brendon's Triumph

As some of you may know, Brendon has had a real struggle when it comes to academics. I have been trying to get some help for him from the school since 5th grade, and finally this year (ninth grade) someone finally took me seriously and listened. We have also added some other strategies to this (I won't go into details) and it is finally starting to help. I went to his parent/teacher conferences last night and his teachers had glowing remarks. "Nothing missing", "What a great student", this one is my favorite "The Brendon of last year and the Brendon of this year is like night and day". It was so awesome to go and meet his teachers and only spend five minutes with them, telling me how awesome he is doing, rather than spending 30 minutes with them trying to encourage him to do his work and turn it in. He is so close to a 3.0 right now he can taste it. Keep up the good work, Brendon, you'll get it!
