Final 120 Days

Ended it where it began

Yesterday i ended where i began – sitting on the bench outside the High School office overlooking the courtyard.
“My bench” as i affectionally named it freshman year (2015).

Yesterday, ended it where it began.

The first month of our Son’s High School freshman year something happened.

He (we) found himself with the discovery that making friends with people you didn’t grow up with was harder than it looked.

One of the things i did was arrive 30-60 minutes earlier than our scheduled daily pickup time.

i’d sit outside the High School counselor’s office and watch the world go by.

It was an attempt to familiarize myself with the “landscape” of after-school karma.

In hindsight, my new business (post Disney career) was slow and i had discretionary time.

Bottom line, the time on that bench was valuable because i met many teachers and staff and built relationships with them, becoming an after school fixture, a familiar face, an involved (concerned) parent.

One of the best investments a parent could ever make.

When you least expect it, Magic happens

Jason is a visionary and a doer.
Jason King is an incredible leader. His passion for his craft is inspiring and contagious.
High School performing Arts awards, last night.
High School Senior accepting award.
Ms Emily Tousek, IB Music Teacher, among many other talents at Windermere Preparatory School.
Three years ago Roderick couldn’t speak English.
The WPS Seniors that were honored last night.
The school hosts many International boarding students.

When you least expect it, Magic happens.

Had no idea our Son was recieving a perfroming arts/IB Music award.

The community inside the WPS Performing Arts is heartwarming.

Son, what a wonderway way to finish strong, on top of your stellar academic performance. Your self-driven and self-guided high School career has been exceptional. Your growth, transformational.

Your teachers guided and taught you. You did all the work to apply it.

No harm, no foul

Lehigh Valley Economic Development
Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce is our Country’s 2nd largest, yet competes with Lehigh Valley Economic Development. 

 

No harm, no foul tonight.

Some go solely to compare.

Others go to genuinely reconnect.

Although Facebook, FaceTime, texting and Skype have made reunions less necessary, there’s something about a 40th High School reunion.

Looking forward to not knowing anyone and still having the time of my life.

No harm, no foul, right?

Completely Different?

Since the junglejeff post was long, this one is short

Windermere Prep football homecoming
Once a year our HS gets to use temporary rental lights. Last night was Homecoming.

 

Since the junglejeff post was long, this one is short.

Last night was Homecoming.

It was the first home game in two years held at night because of homeowner zoning against stadium lights.

It was, very simply, fun to experience.
