Saturday Chuck, Judah and I took road trip to visit a university across the mountains from us. Judah has done an amazing job transitioning from full-time homeschooling to full-time college. The next big bound will be from community college to university. He wants to go into the field of criminal justice, in one aspect or another.
Saturday was a great time for the three of us to spend time together. Even if Chuck slammed on the brakes just as I was fulfilling his request to pour his grape flavored Powerade into his insulated coffee cup, dousing me with grape Powerade. My jeans, my sock, my shoe and my coat were covered. So instead of attending a special university event with an apple pie scented crotch, I attended this event a grape scented everything. Some ladies where perfume or body spray. I wear food…
So what even exactly were we attending? An invitational scholarship banquet to recognize high achieving high school students. Judah now has the opportunity to apply for one of 12 full-ride scholarships at Central Washington University. This will be his prime focus for the next week or so (between school and work). Even if he doesn’t win the scholarship, it is such an honor to be recognized and give the opportunity to apply.
You’ve come a long way, Judah, and we’re so very proud of you!
