Today is a special day for 16 year olds in the UK. It is the day they get their GCSE results. These results determine their future studies, job prospects etc. As many of you know I was very worried about my son Jonathan as we have had a very difficult time with him over the last few months.
Anyway - he passed them all!!! He now has 10 GCSEs! I am so relieved!
He has an A in English, Bs in English Lit, Media Studies, Science, and Design Technology and Cs in History, Maths, Graphics, Additional Science and Religious Studies. He was expected to do much better in Maths and Graphics but the results in English and Media have definitely compensated for these. And a pass is a pass so that's all that counts!
He is going on to college to do a BTEC in Art & Design and then hopes to go to university in 2 years. I am so relieved and very proud of him. I cried all the way home in the car - it takes 20 minutes and yes I was driving!
This is the only photo he would allow me to take - I've no idea who his friend is!

As I said in a previous post - last Thursday my brother visited with his 4 children and we like to get a family photo! These are my Mum and Dad's 6 grandchildren ranging in age from 16 to 3. The two big ones are mine!

Also a couple of photos from the Leeds VW Festival last weekend.

My youngest, Robert has set off to Leeds Music Festival this weekend with his friend and his friend's Dad. Apparently it is already a mud bath due to all the rain we have been having lately!

Well done to your son! Anything above a C is excellent, and all that is required. Anything in the B or A category is the icing on the cake. It's all a nine day's wonder anyway. Nobody ever asks me now about my exam results (which were't as good as your son's, anyway!)
