Brayden Preteen Summary {11.75 Years}

This is a summary for Brayden from 11.5-11.75 years old.



Eating is good. Things were all pretty much the same. He eats a lot of food (though I know it will only increase). 



We continued on with no stress issues about sleep, which marks 6 months! He got a little worried at the time change when he was going to bed Saturday night and realized it was like it was later than it was, especially because our church starts at 9 so he can’t really sleep in on Sunday. I told him it was okay and reminded him not to stress about it and he was fine.






Brayden continued with piano and swimming. With piano, he has started to arrange songs. You can see a short clip of one he recently did above. He really, really enjoys playing instruments. Swimming is going well. He continually dropped time at his meets. Brayden also played in another basketball league during this period.


A big thing in his life is the school musical. We did Peter Pan JR and Brayden played Captain Hook. It is his favorite part to date, and he executed it flawlessly. It was so fun to watch. 


Check me out on Instagram to see photos and videos of our goings ons.



Brayden entered the school science fair this year. He took first place for his project. 



Jr. High is on our horizon. Ack! He registered for Jr. High a few weeks ago. Next fall you might find me curled up in a ball on my bed crying when school starts as I have my oldest enter Jr. High and my youngest kindergarten. Sniff.
