So it is final..... my son Alan will going to Baker University in Baldwin City Kansas to attend college in August. I am so happy and yet so sad.
I have three children and this one is my middle child, oldest son. He just turned 18 and he has been awarded a scholarship to play football and get his education!!!!!!
I am one PROUD MOM!
With the departure of Alan (handsome son above), I will be left with one more at home and then I will be an empty nester!!! Yikes... am I really getting to be that age already? I sure don't feel like it.
Alan is the current record holder in 5 categories as QB for our local Van Buren High School and he will be playing QB for Baker as well. He is 6`4 and weighs in about 210. He is an Honor Student, Leader in his Youth Group at First Baptist Church Van Buren, gives talks on Abstinence to the lower classes, volunteers in the community, and overall is just a great kid.
This has absolutely nothing to do with Real Estate except for one of my big why`s as to how come I love my job and want to continue to do well. I want to be able to give my kids things & opportunities I never had when I was younger.
I thought I might just share a little bit of what I pray is a fruitful college experience for him. His Coach, Mike Grossner is personal friends and works with Payton Manning at the Manning Passing Academy and played ball with Mike McCarthy of the Green Bay Packers, who was recently inducted into the Baker University Hall of Fame. I believe that my son will have some opportunities that will benefit him well into his adult life. And really... I sure wont feel bad for him having those kind people in his Rolodex when he gets older!
If you don't mind my sappy mother rants... I will continue to post my journey of watching my son go and grow through college!
To his success!
