I am so proud of Brandon for not only being a very dedicated and driven young man, but for also being a kind and thoughtful son and brother. He is only 13 years of age and has completed his Eagle. In addition he has received 48 merit badges (only 21 are required for eagle). He is not stopping there... right now he has a handful more of merit badges he is working on. He is a straight A student taking honors courses. He participates in multiple sports with soccer being his favorite. He is active in his church responsibilities and assignments. He plays the piano and is in percussion in the school band. He is tireless and energetic.
It is a privilege to be his mother...
(OK I will stop now with the parent pride thing! :)
