Derek is now in 8th grade, still in High Strides (gifted and talented) program, and is doing very well.  He now plays percussion for the advanced band.  He will be joining the Swim Club.  He is working on a novel, which may have to be broken into a series of books.  He has about 200-300 pages written.  It is a very good story.
