I have spent the majority of my time writing about our journey with Apraxia and while that is why I began this blog, I have always felt like it was just my “thing” to help deal with all we had going on with Arianna but I’ve also felt like I let Xander down a bit as he’s just not as involved. This page will try and help solve for this.
To let you know a little about our son I will begin by saying he is 8 years old, he is very much a boy’s boy = girls have germs, and he loves bugs and gross stuff.
He absolutely LOVES science and anything related to science. He eagerly soaks up information about anything he is remotely interested in. Currently it is life sciences and also recycling and being “green”. He is a member of the “Green Team” at school where he assists in collecting the recyclables from classrooms two times per week before class starts. He genuinely loves school and learning though he will tell you differently at times. This year he made the Math Bowl team and will compete for area title at the end of the month.
He has also been active in his last year of Beginner division bible quizzing with our church. We have merged with another church in our area and together the team has really excelled and we hope to make it to Nationals this summer.
I am opening a page for him to express his thoughts this summer to help prep for 3rd grade and the intense writing he will face there. He really isn’t a fan of writing and much prefers math and science. I hope you enjoy his stories or whatever he chooses to share over the next few months. I am giving him free reign and he can pick his own topics to write about.
All I ask is for you to please leave him a comment or two to encourage him as he tries this route of expression. Thanks in advance!
His posts will be titled under Xander’s Believe It Or Not. Look for some interesting and probably strange posts coming soon!
