Text Reflection

Patrick-Henry-College-400x224

Kellen, who turned 16 just this month, has been on an amazing adventure this week — attending speech camp at his dream school: Patrick Henry College in Virginia. We hardly heard from him because 1) he had limited access to his phone, and 2) he was BUSY! Even with a three-hour time difference and scant communication, we could tell he was up both early and late. And we’re still waiting for details to go with the quick photos he managed to snap and send during a daylong field trip to Washington, D.C.

Although camp is over, we’ll have to wait a bit more because Kellen took a detour on his return trip to visit friends in North Carolina for a few days. So proud of how he’s navigated it all! I love our text exchange from this morning and wanted to remember it:

Timeline: Comic-Style Collage

Kerrick8thGradeVerticalIt seriously cannot be true that my second-born is almost officially a high-schooler! And yet, here we are, preparing for Kerrick’s junior high graduation. Collecting and selecting the images for this poster was a challenge physically (the photos were in stored in various boxes all over the house and on three different computers) and emotionally (once I found the photos, it was a little tricky to focus through the memories-induced tears). But I managed to pull it all together and actually have a blast creating this comic-style print that I hope reflects who Kerrick is: a fun-loving, full-of-life, fantastic kid — a real Boy Wonder. I might not be quite ready to turn the page, but he can’t wait to see what happens next! 🙂
