Proud Dad Moment

Allow me to be a proud dad for a moment... Katie is a senior in high school and the path to planning next year has been a little bumpy - life with teenagers, whatever. She didn't really want to go to school next year and most of you readers knew about her candidate weekend about a month ago to a school in the Middle East. At the end of last week, we found out that she got accepted along with a very, very generous financial package. All that to say that we are very proud of her, not just for what she has accomplished but because she has paved the way for one of many paths that will help her be everything the Lord wants her to be.

I absolutely love this paragraph from the acceptance letter and if you know Katie, you know how it fits her:
Surrounded by extraordinary students like yourself and working closely with world-class faculty, you will flourish as a scholar and develop the full range of your exceptional talent. In a vibrant city at an emerging crossroads of the world, with unparalleled opportunity for cross-cultural exploration and international study, you will equip yourself for leadership in a global age.

Emerging crossroads of the world, cross cultural exploration, international study, leadership in a global age - sounds like The Ember Cast. For better or worse, that's the kind of children we grew.
