Wednesday morning was a moment I don't want to forget...Big J's first day of his junior year!
Every year I take a picture of him holding up his fingers to represent what grade he's in, well this year we had to figure out how to do it...two number one's is as best as we could do for 11th grade! :) I have a feeling though that this year is going to be pretty high up there in the number one spot.
This school year our boy has a full course load at school and he is taking American Sign Language at our local community college. At the high school he'll be taking his first photography course and will be learning all about, the camera, film, black and white photography and the dark room...I think he's more excited about that class than anything else! He's also got American Literature, Trigonometry, US History and Earth and Space Science. For extra curricular activities he'll be on the Homecoming committee for the first time, participate again with Christian Athletes on Campus, Invisible Children, Volleyball and try to get as much if not more community hours put in as last year which was 160. Like I said...a full load!
My dearest J...My prayer for you this year is that you continue to follow the path our Lord has set in front of you and you take full advantage of all of the positive opportunities that come your way. I know this year is going to be a challenge for you yet you are going in head first with all your heart and soul and that is inspiring to me! Continue to be the leader you are and share your light with those who need it. Know that we are always here for you in all that you do...we are your biggest cheerleaders! I am SO excited to watch you learn, grow and succeed during this your junior year of high school!! SO excited! Go forth with all the love and joy that God filled you with this summer and make the most of this year!
I love you more than all the sand in the ocean!
