Today, my son now age 13, has been at a residential school for exactly 1 year. Here is a video of his end-of-year academic award. Check out that proud smile at 0:33 !!!
Two great things for those not familiar (1) He was able to handle the noise and clapping of the ceremony for a good 1/2 hour and (2) He went up to accept his award by himself (with some coaching). I have a ton of reflections both challenging and joyous. I just ask for your continued support of him and me.
P.S. Although I appreciate the good intentions, when people tell me “just think about it like he went to college early,” I want to… well, let’s just say its an unhelpful analogy.
P.P.S The Kickstarter should be live around July 8. I hope you check it out, if only for the cool animated video.
