Just a super short post. Branden passed the first part of the Eiken pre1, we found out yesterday...

Hey ya'll, this is just going to be a super short post for today. I think the title of this post pretty much sums up everything already. Umm, everyone who took the Eiken pre1, knew they could log onto the Eiken website yesterday and find out their results. Just the student and family with passwords, student # etc. Anyway they said the results would be up at 3pm Friday/yesterday. And both the kids got off school yesterday at 3:45pm. But Noboru and I were both here at home and at 2:59pm we went to the Eiken website and we did have to refresh because we were a tad early and right away we saw this! It says he passed. If you see the yellow box and the 2 bold kanji inside, that says Bran passed. It also says in that same area you can see a 1. It says pre1. What does this mean now? Well it means Branden will have to go back and take an interview in English. The interview part... is not really a worry or concern for us. Since he fluently speaks with me every day. So no major worries there, thank goodness. : ) But just wanted to update you all. I know quite a few of you have emailed me or private messaged me, asking..."how did Branny do?" Love you guys for caring and asking. : ) And I did say...as soon as I know, I would let you all know. And so now we know. The hardest hurdle is over. So now it's just the frosting on the cake part next...the interview part. And that shouldn't be a problem at all. We will now wait for the actual passing paperwork they will be sending to our house here in a few days (even though we have already seen the results online and you can see them in this pic...but they will send a real letter to make it legit as proof and Bran can take that paper to his school to inform his teacher). We should be getting that letter soon. : ) Anyway have a fantastic weekend everyone. We are supposed to be expecting snow for our town yet again? But again...it very rarely snows here...so I sorta doubt it. But we'll see... I'm keeping an open mind. We have a ton of food, drinks and snacks here at the house so we're all good here. : ) Stay safe and stay warm. : ) We'll do the same here. : )
