He is on his high school swim team. Does yoga. Plays the Bass. Had fun on the side. 🤗
He is a very self motivated person. Participating in extra swim competitions, Orchestra contests and is heading to London in December for two weeks of playing with non-USA musicians.
This is one self motivated individual.
So, she/we gave him this book. He read it cover to cover last weekend while over at our house.
So, I asked him. What did you think?
15 year old gave me this in depth analysis. Him: "It was good." Me: "did you learn anything?" Him: "yeah."
It was great to see him open up and reallly lay out his feelings.
We had some chips and watched Deadpool for fun.
