My oldest just turned 18. Cliché, but - the years flew by. Hard to believe he is now considered a young adult. I am greatly hoping he will attend our annual Bible camp - CBLI (Central Bible and Leadership Institute) - in the young adult group this summer. It was looking like he might not be able to because of his lined up delivery job, but perhaps now he will be able to find a different job that will enable him to take a week off for the camp.
I am proud of the young man he has become. He is, for the most part, responsible and considerate. He is laid-back and easy-going. He holds vast potential in school and will be attending Purdue University for a degree in chemical engineering. This week, he is hard at work writing a twenty page paper for school and studying for the AP Calculus test, which will determine if he gets to skip the entry-level calculus class next year.
Here's a quick look at how he has progressed over the years:
Happy Birthday, my beloved first born son. May you enrich the world and do great things.
