Congratulations Benjamin

Tonight, Benjamin was notified of his acceptance into a 21st Century learning academy at the high school of his choice.  

We’ve been sitting on pins and needles in anticipation of notification. I was able to snap this picture of him after he read his acceptance email!  

I am so excited and proud of this kid.  He had to apply, answer essay questions, participate in a zoom interview, and have 2 teacher recommendations...a lot for any 8th grader to experience! 

Following in the footsteps of his father! 


  1. Congratulations!!!
    What an honor!
    Hugs for Mom. : )

  2. Thank you, Billie Jo! He is over the moon excited. He is unsure if he wants to be a fire fighter or a police officer. Either way, I'm proud of him. And at only 14...who knows where life will lead him. Happy Weekend.

  3. Oh gosh, he's so big! Congratulations to Ben! I am going to have to read through all of your recent posts to get caught up. I had about 10 to 12 ladies I really blogged with that I've missed the connection with a lot lately. It was such a sweet and supportive little bubble, with the world so crazy right now, I long for it again❤.

  4. Sounds like he is on the path to a geat future!
