Proud grandmother post coming up ....

.... I have 3 grandchildren, The Professor, age 16, his brother, Chatterbox who is 12, and their cousin (who used to be known as Little Person when he was young, but he's too grown up for that now, so I think I'll refer to him as Mr. D.) who will be 8 on Friday.  Recently they have all made me feel very proud.

The Professor recently came 3rd in the whole of Britain in a maths challenge that all schools were involved in.  The funny thing is that he hadn't even told his parents he was in the challenge, let alone the results.  His mother only found out when she saw the award certificate in his room and asked him about it!

Chatterbox was selected by his school, along with a couple of others, to represent his school in a literary project, where they were going into other schools and talking to younger children about literary things. Afterwards his headmaster wrote to his parents to praise how well he had acquitted himself and to quote some wonderful comments from the other schools about him.

Mr D., pictured here
recently won a Leadership award at school. Doesn't he look pleased?  I know he was very excited about it. It is his birthday on Friday and I am going down for the weekend, which I am really looking forward to.

  11. Grammie has good reason to brag! Your 16 year old reminds me of my, once, 16 year old daughter who accomplished so many wonderful things, but never beat her own drum!
