Proud Day

Today our oldest son graduated with honors from the finest college in the country. Timothy majored in English at Westmont College in Santa Barbara, the same college his mother and I graduated from in 1981. We couldn’t be prouder.

His brother Levi just finished his freshman year at Westmont, next year he will lead the Vesper’s worship team. He is planning on a double major in English and Philosophy.

Younger brothers Caleb and Joseph are taking us to Washington DC June 10-14 to compete in National History Day. Their project on Honor Crimes won first place in the California competition which took place last weekend in Long Beach. This will be our third consecutive trip to DC to compete nationally. The kids took third and fourth place the last two years. Their team consists of my two youngest, Caleb and Joe and Robyn and Melanie Miles.
