I have been reading a few older posts of this blog, and wow, how depressing! The bulk of my posts are about Brenna. How I miss her. How I love her. How my heart breaks for her. I realized that I barely ever write about the son I have here with me! He is but barely a mention on this blog, and that really isn't an accurate picture since he is such a big part of my life. In fact, he is the main part. Originally, this blog was about Brenna. But, as the title hints, this is actually a blog about my life. Life without her. But life just the same.
So allow me to introduce you to my first born. His name is Brendan, and he is 12. He goes to a private, Christian center school, that we love. He is very smart (and I'm not just saying that because I'm his mom!). He effortlessly gets almost all A's in school. In fact, school is so easy for him, that when he does have to actually study something he doesn't know how to do it. That is something we are struggling with. But, overall he does very well is school and really loved his class!
He play many sports. He is active in almost every sport that is offered to us. He isn't a world class athlete, but to be honest my husband and I are just happy he's active. He's a video game/computer fanatic! He will sit at the computer all day if we let him, so we're happy he has other interests.
He just competed in a music festival and his school got top scores on everything. He was so proud. Also this week, he ran an 8 minute mile- the fastest in his class! The younger kids were out to watch them run, and he said they were all clapping and cheering and giving him high fives as he crossed the finish line. Definitely one of his proudest moments!
So now you know a little about him. The biggest part of my life.
