Is is really possible that Avery could be 17 years old already?!?!?!?!?!? He had to learn some tough lessons during his 17th year, but I have a feeling that this 18th year will be one full of good memories. He has big plans for this year and many things on the list of things to accomplish.
Right now he has a baby for his personal life skills class. The baby has a computer chip in it that tracks all of the activity. He did surprisingly good with it although there were a couple of meltdown moments. It has been fun to watch him grow and learn over the last few months. Being a parent is still the most challenging thing I've ever done in my life, but it has also been the most rewarding. He is becoming a man whether he likes it or not. Less than a year and he'll legally be an adult!!!!! Unbelievable!
I'm a high school science teacher currently living my dream of teaching out in bush Alaska. I'm always up for new adventures and like to travel anywhere and everywhere. This blog is a way to keep in touch with friends and family, journal about life, and share my experiences with the world.
