My son has a late birthday, so he started Kindergarten at 5 1/2. Went in and was testing at a second grade level on some things. They skipped him to 1st grade before he was 6. When he started second grade they recognized his academic ability and enrolled him in the G&T program. He was accepted and will be in it until graduation. He also decided to do an acting program through school and is very good with memorizing his lines, and does well with the public speaking portion. He tries sports, but he doesn't seem to be gifted that way. Maybe he'll find one he's really good at. At least he enjoys doing it.

I have one daughter who is 17 and I love to brag about her, she brought home some pictures she drew in art class this week and I could not believe it. Here is an eyeball she drew with a pencil.

Certainly has potential. Very few can draw that well in high school. I have a cousin that does artwork as a side income. Her random 'doodles' are phenomenal.


That is incredible! I've only known three people who could do such detailed work with pencil. Fabulous.

We have great grand children hope to live long enough to see them grown. My wife and I drove two hours there and two hours back to see one of the girls in a dance recital. Her mother sent my wife a message that the grand daughter talked all the way home about Nana and Papa Jack coming to see her dance.

I like reading about others kids..
We have 4 kids, all living in their own homes, with spouses and their children. None are smokers, no tattoos, no arrest records. All but one college educated and most off scholarships.. But that's not my bragging point. My bragging point is what people say about my kids. You are not going to find anyone who would bad mouth them. They were popular in school, and are admired in their adult lives.
I'd like to take credit, but I cant say what I did other than I kept them busy and I tried to stay a good roll model (which was so hard because I have a mouth like a sailor and so many things I learned growing up I had to stop)…. I think kids learn from watching, whether you think they watching are or not. They watch....

Welp, my son would give anyone the shirt off his back. He is kind, soft spoken, an excellent musician and serving in the Air Force Security Forces. He has a full arm tattoo...that has amazing art. Tattoos don't make someone, their actions and faith in God, Country, and Family do. Just saying.

Son is a Graduate of Columbia University in New York City and was the President of the Columbia Debate Team. He was one of the top 16 debaters in the World (that tournament was in Greece). He was a top five debater in the US in High School, an Eagle Scout and a National Merit Finalist.

Daughter is on a full Presidential Scholarship at Alabama (with a 10k per year Speech stipend) she will graduate with a degree in Math and a Masters in Education in 4 years and it is only costing me her food and spending money (she is the good child :D)

Just stating that I had 4 kids without tattoos, what are the chances this day and age.. I though, relate tattoos to rebellious behavior. One of my kids was a jailer for a while and can testify that everyone locked in there had tattoos...…… Not saying everyone who has tattoos is bad, but bad people have tattoos...…..Just saying

Got two wonderful daughters that I am very proud of. One is a pharmacist, the other a petroleum land man (or would that be landlady). Both attended Texas A&M and the one that is a pharmacist about died when she learned that the only school of pharmacy in Texas at the time was at UT. But she survived. Both are great ladies, hard working, raising three children each, (do not smoke, lol) active in their church and school and I wouldn't change anything about them. The best thing I did was stay out of their way as much as possible as they were growing up but assure them I was there if they needed me.
