I'm sitting in a large high school auditorium, listening to a very dynamic announcer read of the names and awards of state science fair projects. The kids here are in junior high and high school, so many of the projects are over my head. I don't even understand all the words in their titles! A huge amount of research and hard work go into these science projects.
Chris and his friend have already won a specialty award from NASA. I'm impressed with the depth and and scope of their research, but I can't sum it up for you very easily.
Chris has such a brilliant brain, and his thoughts are progressive and well ordered. I'm so peeps of him! I'm sure I don't tell him that enough, but it's hard for a mom to say mushy things like that to a teenage boy without eye rolls and embarrassment. But I am proud of him, and impressed with how he is growing up. He is graduating this year, but I'm not sure how that happened. He will find his own place in the world, and do well at the things he throws his heart into.
And now I'll quit, before we all die of mortification. Love you, buddy!
