In what ways do one or two events or experiences

High School author
2018

 

In what ways do one or two events or experiences in your son’s development seem especially significant?

 

Publishing his first book as a High School Sophomore. Learning how to storyboard, organize, decide, and ship a book are skills many adults only dream of. His confidence grew exponentially.

Becoming a Shot Putter on the Track team. His dad forced him to do something with a group of people five days a week after school. So he wouldn’t have to run, he picked the shot put. The Track coach convinced him (a miracle) to join the Cross Country Team in the Fall. He had more reasons to quit than another other teammate but never did.

Bonus: Attending a Montessori School for a decade before High School. He learned to think for himself to solve complex and interesting challenges.

Writing this from Orlando International Airport – 6am.

Boarding in 20 minutes.

Carrying one small bag – same bag i hike with in Glacier National Park.

These seemingly insignificant details are anything but.

Please indulge in mental self-care

Know what you’re looking for before you start looking.

 

Please indulge in mental self-care.

Know what you’re looking for before you start looking.

Why?

Confusion and doubt do not nourish a positive mental attitude.

  • Great English Department
  • Clean and safe campus (includes dorm rooms)
  • Great food
  • Close (30 mins+- ) to airport

Maybe campus karma too.

Made the decision to turn off the beaten path

Yesterday about 6:30am.

Just the two of us until about 7am. Rick is a golfer.

And then there were three. Dave, right, is a hiker.

Nature saves the best for what a camera can’t capture…all our senses.

 

Only three guys (of 13) didn’t go golfing yesterday (second consecutive golf day): me, Dave, and Carl.

We are seen as, “They don’t like to golf”.

Everyone is cool with it, although the golfers wish every brother golfed.

And the three of us were wishing the golfers were hikers and explorers.
