Junior year done!

First day of Junior year!

Holy cow!  It's done!!!  Jacob has finished his third year of high school and is now a senior!!!!  What a year it has been!  We knew the year was going to be a huge challenge for all of us but we went into it with a positive outlook and let the flow go where it needed to go but with serious reminders to keep our eyes on our schedules!  Here's a peek at what the year has been like for Jake...and the rest of us.  :)

Wake up time!
Getting my bible study in between 6:30 and when baby J gets up.  :)
Mondays -

In line...again.
Get a walk in while we wait for tutoring to end.

Waiting again.

Back behind the bus again!!!!
Oh high school.

Another afternoon in traffic.

A year of car naps...DONE!
Fridays -

Whatever the day brings!  :)

Sundays -
church 9am - 1pm

An early night!!  Might just get a five hours of sleep
then get up and do it all again!
Time to get up!!
And then add in the volunteer weekends at camp, volunteer opportunities in the community and countless hours of teenage fun filled weekends!  Phew!  Did I mention that he has been working on getting his license during this year too??   We've spent countless hours in the car and spending time together.  I have seriously loved every single minute of the busy year and being a huge part of his life.  I'm not sure what any of us is going to do next year when he's becoming more responsible and depending less and less on us.  Oh sigh...they do grow up.

Next year his senior schedule is looking pretty sweet and he'll have lots of free time and hopefully a job and more time to do some volunteer stuff and concentrate on getting into college!  WOW!  I can't even begin to go there yet!  What an adventure the year ahead will bring and I can't wait to document it all and be sitting in the front row to watch the show.

Congratulations Jacob on a great junior year!  Don't forget all the fun you had....

...homecoming rally...hours at Verve...Skyhigh late nights...snow camp...family camp...Belong...crashing Harbors prom...dub step parties...koooook feast...deaf sushi night...convertible car rides in the beemer...spring break...getting your license...crashing the college rave...New Years Eve...fancy family dinners...camping along Hwy 1...Thanksgiving in OR...Betty's Burgers...Big Sur adventures...Mock Rock....the list goes on and on!
