my son also has had a lifetime of sensitivity to noise and other quirks. He gets high grades but struggles socially. come to find out he has a mild case of Asberger's syndrome, which is a mild form of autism. I would humbly suggest having him evaluated for such before having him skip grades.

Ah, Panama City, home of the lower back tattoo (aka - Panama City License Plate - or "Tramp Stamp", if you prefer). Your experiences there are the reason why we haven't we gone in many a year. Dumbass, redneck drunkards and gridlock traffic. Next time either keep on going to Port St. Joe or head to Pensacola Beach. (Just don't go to Pensacola Beach THIS weekend, unless you want to explain to your son why a big hairy man would ever wear a leapord print thong.) ;)

For other idoits like me; Coon Ass does not mean "Nappy headed hoe". It refers to the cajuns.

You always make me laugh Uncle B! =) So are you guys going to go ahead with skipping Andrew up a grade?

Had to google Panama City Beach as I wasnt exactly sure where it was, but then I AM foreign. It looks very nice. I have been to Pensacola Beach and I spent a couple of holidays near Gulf Shores, too, if that counts for anything (which is probably doesnt). You have some lovely beaches over there, I must say. s x

Between the adorable beach pic and the Principal Award (snappy title), I hope you're busting with pride over that kid. Who REALLY likes loud cannons anyway?

Obviously the cage is working with the kid, so might as well keep him in it.

Jesus Christ, the kid is getting big. UB, I'll be honest, it's been years since I read your journal. Then the other day, out of the blue, I thought "I wonder how uncle bob is doing?" I remember when Andrew was BORN, and now he's getting the principal award. Trippy.

U.B., I have an Andrew of my own, and we literally went through hell and back with him. He is now in the military and doing awesome. I think your Andrew is going to turn out fine. :-)

We were at Kennesaw Mtn. Battlefield in GA just today and they did a canon firing reenactment and my 3 year old freaked out- he too would not fair well on that pirate cruise- I can't imagine kids loving it.. oh well. He is adorable, I too remember when he was born and can't bel. how much he has grown up- makes me feel old!!! The best to you. J

When our son was young, he also freaked out at loud noises: train whistles, fireworks, you name it. We have a zillion pics of him with his hands covering his ears. He's now 30 and still hates noise so I don't know if they ever "outgrow" it. At least he doesn't run away shrieking now, tho! Yay on the Award!
