In Christopher's last year at college, he received an acknowledgement of his writing talent in his journalism class, "It Was A Dark And Stormy Night" award. Even though it is intended as a tongue in cheek type of prize, little did they know that C. had written those very lines in his first grade handwriting which I displayed proudly on the fridge for years! (C. always loved Madeleine L'Engle AND Snoopy!) Other students might not have thought one thing about this, but for my son, even the award using those same words somehow seemed just right.
I am sorry for the quality of these photos. You will never know how long I have tried to get them on here for you. They are really good photos of C. and his award!
Very soon, he will have more articles in the print version of the magazine and his name will be on the masthead. I have written about Christopher before...you can see a photo of him on the side of my blog, with my husband, Richard on top of Arabia Mountain.
Just last Saturday, Christopher visited us. Although Richard had to work, C. and I went to Arabia Mountain. It was heavenly.
|I left my heart on Arabia Mountain!|
|C. even stands like his Dad! (Ever notice how father and son have similar mannerisms?)|
Notice that in the photo above, Christopher has taken off his jacket. It was pleasantly warm in the sun, a lovely day.
Good bye to all my sweet blogging friends! Hope you all have a great week ahead and stay warm!
(And for my friends in Australia and New Zealand, stay cool!)
