For the past 16+ years we've been telling our oldest son that he is exceptional, but as a homeschooling student I don't thing he believed us. I can't imagine why he'd think we're biased.
For the past two years at Contra Costa Community College he's been on the on the dean's list every semester; still he didn't believe us. This past week he was accepted to all three of the 4 year colleges that he applied to - with merit scholarship offers from each. He was surprised, we weren't; we're just excited that he's starting to feel what we see - that the Lord has blessed him with great abilities and he has unlimited opportunities!
