    As a proud (and obviously, very good looking :mad: ) Dad, I am itching to blurt out my news but have been sworn to secrecy until certain results have been released next week..... Whoops!
    For those who are disputing my attractiveness, remember, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I was not beaten around the head and body with an ugly stick as a child. That came a little later.......and oh what a beating it must have been - haha.

    I can finally divulge the secret. Today we attended the official ceremony of the Board of Studies NSW where my son received his award for coming first in state in the HSC for Metals & Engineering. That's right, First in the State!!! I'm so proud of my son :D :D :D . We had to keep things quiet until after the ceremony as the HSC results are not released until tomorrow.
    To top it off, we just returned home and our youngest, 15 yo, received his yearly report today and it's the best yet. He struggles a little with school but he got all B's and an A. :D :D :D
    OUTSTANDING EFFORT boys.
    Love ya's

    Congrats, I know how you feel. I felt the same way when I opened a letter to my wife and I stating that our son was chosen as Valedictorian when he was graduating 8th grade.


    Way to go :)

    More study. University if all goes well. Definitely not like his old man. School wasn't my thing. I did well, just didn't like being there.
