Braggin' on my "big" boy

Isaac has been chosen for a very special program through his school called the Governer's Honor Program. We are so proud of him.  This is a huge moment for him because he is the only student that has been chosen from his school in the Art department to participate. (there are other fields of study as well ie math, science, history, etc)  If he makes it through 2 levels of interviews, one at the local level and one at the state level, he will be offered 4 weeks of paid intensive study program at Valdosta University here in GA.

At this point his job is to gather a portfolio together, be prepared to answer a list of questions in a face to face interview, be able to relate well to art history, critique his own work, and more.

Thousands of kids will be going through this process but out of that group only 690 will be chosen to participate in the coursework next summer.

This would be HUGE for Isaac. 

Right now we are proud of the fact that he even was selected by his teacher as the representative for his school of 3000 kids.  We are also very humbled by it because we know for a fact that there are so many talented kids in the art department of his school.  His teacher thinks very highly of Isaac and wants to see him succeed with his art.  This is a moment when we sit back as parents and encourage, pray, and support him as best we can to succeed.  But, we are already proud of him.

Please join with us in praying for him to be afforded this opportunity.  But, also that he would learn even simply from the process itself.
