This kid is my middle son. Drew. I call him Drewdles. He's my favorite 8 year old. He's understanding... but sneaky. Smart and clever. He's not one to follow... definitely a leader.
Today we were discussing classes to register for at for the summer session of College For Kids at Tarrant County College. I told him his best friend wasn't signing up for any of the classes he had and asked if he wanted to change any classes... he said, "No, I like what I have. I can just make new friends."
I love that attitude! Don't change what you want just to follow the crowd! Be a leader. Make new friends. I've been in the same boat and made the same choices. He made me proud today!
