Today, he is a high-schooler. He is standing on the edge of manhood--giggling, mischievous little boy one minute, serious, no nonsense young man the next. There will be no going back--his future is before him. I must and will pray in earnest that God will guide and help him to walk in His will and for His glory.
Thursday night's festivities were interesting to observe. There were close to one hundred and eighty eighth graders, all dressed up in their fancy best. They came in all shapes and sizes, some boys, who looked like men, and some who were still just little boys, and everything in-between. Some were the "cool" kids, some were the misfits, but most were everyday boys on the verge of manhood, just trying to fit in.
The girls were really dressed up!! There were dresses of all shapes and sizes--some lovely, some not so lovely, and some that made me think, "where is her mother?" It was quite a parade of dressed up young ladies! Almost all of them had on heels, which they had difficulty in managing. It was a gala occasion! I am so thankful I was able to attend.
Afterward we gathered at Elliot's home and shared some good memories, some delicious apple crisp and ice-cream and some warm family time.
You can tell he likes "hoodies" and long hair at this stage of his life.
