Tre has been super busy with advanced classes at school, a new instrument, stake choir, scouts, & 2 lacrosse teams. He is always on the go...& if he is not he is willingly helping out with siblings, house work, even cooking. He is so much like his father...always looking for opportunities to serve & learn.
I am so proud of him. He is constantly surrounded by roughness at his school. It not ideal, but its actually the best fit as he is able to take classes at 7th & 8th grade level to keep him challenged, none of the other schools were able to move him up at his pace rather than just his grade. The boy is incredibly smart! Today after school we sat down & talked about how he felt about his environment & then we read a talk by President Monson & watched the LDS message "Dare to Stand Alone." It made me cry because I realize Tre often has to stand alone, but more than that...I am proud beyond words of how he is willing to choose what is right & work hard. He is a good kid! Always (almost) grateful & loving.
Tre turns 12 this December & we had big plans to buy him a suit for his birthday as he will be receiving the priesthood then. But when he joined the stake choir he was in need of a jacket & we thought..what the heck lets just give him a new suit, shoes, belt, ties now. Watching him put on his tiny little JCrew suit with his dad just bought broke my heart in two. Those two have my heart. Tre is getting big fast. I don't want to blink.
