My Right Hand Man, Jonathan
Yes, Jonathan is alive and well! Sometimes I feel like he is the lost ranger. He is very much a great help and contributor around here. He is busier than a one armed paper hanger. He is attending community college, finishing his Senior year at Mestas Christian Academy, a Jr. Firefighter with the Wake Forest Fire Dept. and in training to be a professional Fire fighter through their training program. He also works part time for Team Electric doing some manufacturing work and apprenticing to be an electrician. He just resigned as our official lawn mower this year. He decided something had to be removed from his schedule and this was his least favorite activity. He also resigned from the Explorers program with the Wake Forest Police Dept. since he likes being a fire fighter much better. He just passed the state EMT exam and is continuing the certification classes for Fireman I position. If all goes well, he could be entering the WF Fire Dept. academy next summer. He will be graduating high school on June 7, 2008. We have 17 graduates this year with our homeschool group. So, mark your calendars if you can come join us in this awesome celebration.
Jonathan is an outstanding young man of integrity, he is funny, drives too fast, easy going, loves country music, hunting, fishing, cliff diving( A Wake Forest pastime :) and he is my right hand man. He is a great big brother to Ellie and the boys and he is going to be the primary care giver of the twins while we are in Ethiopia. I am blessed and honored to be his MAMA!
