This One Is For You, Boston

Boston is nearly 13 years old.  Boston isn't usually wearing makeup, but this picture was taken while she was in stage makeup for one of her dance competitions last month.  It is the latest picture I have of her.

Boston had a goal.  She wanted to make the National Honor Society.  So she worked to make it happen.  Yesterday it did.

The letter was waiting for her when she got home from school.  She called her Dad.  He told me she was so excited that he couldn't understand a word she said.  He had to wait for her to calm down and speak a little more slowly, without the squeals of delight.  Girls who are almost teenagers squeal with delight.  A lot.  I think it is in their DNA.

I called her last evening.  I wanted to congratulate her and tell her how proud her Grandma is of her and her accomplishment.

Because I am.


  1. As you should be! Congratulations to all of you.

  2. Thank you, Gorges. I think I am most proud of the fact that she set a goal for herself and then proceeded to work hard to achieve it.

  3. We are proud of her as well. When she sets her mind to something, she does what it takes to achieve the goal.

  4. David...I'm pretty sure that Boston's work ethic (and that of your other two as well) has a lot to do with the example set by her parents. Well done.
