Go for it!

Look at the pride on their faces. George (who will always be Georgie to me) graduated high school with honors. He is an outstanding athlete, state all star volley ball champ, and by nature, he's quiet and gentle, unless he is spiking a ball. That big guy, at 6'5" is a power hitter on two sports teams, and he's traveled the country participating in tournaments.

He is about to chart new territory as he takes a road trip with his buddies to see the Grand Canyon, before heading off to Vassar College in New York. 

When he was born, he wasn't like most newborns who have "frog legs" scrunched close to their bodies. The doctor handed him to his parents.  His dad snugged him  in a receiving blanket. Georgie stretched his legs and kicked his feet out of the blanket....over and over again. He looked at  his parents as they spoke. He turned his head toward voices. He was a big baby, filling the bassinet and our hearts with love. As Grandpa and I walked out of the hospital, I declared Georgie a genius. I was right! He's always been an A student, a brilliant scholar, outstanding athlete, so sweet and tender when he holds a baby, and most of all, always a GENTLEMAN. 

We are so proud of you, George! Your future awaits. Go for it!

For once, Sasquatch is the shortest one!

Give my congratulations to George. I am sure he'll have a great time seeing the Grand Canyon (I've never been…sigh.) and a stellar first year in college.
