Once upon a time there was a little boy with red hair and a love of order. When he was 5 years old, he set out on a grand adventure. Through days and weeks, months and years our intrepid hero negotiated the sometimes arduous, but always stimulating, road of discovery. He met some wonderful characters, and developed knowledge, skills, and most importantly character, along the way.
13 years have passed, and now that chapter is over, and a new one is about to begin…
Today my Alex had his high school graduation. 13 years of schooling have come to an end. In a couple of weeks he will be sitting his Higher School Certificate exams. Some time in December he will receive his results and the universities will make their offers of places for next year. In January he will turn 18 and become (legally) an adult.
We don’t know what the next chapter has in store, but we do know that he has grown into a fine, honest young man, and we are very proud of him. He is funny, smart, musical, faithful, easy-going and loyal. He is a wonderful brother to Rosie, a good friend, and a respected mentor and teacher to many at Kids’ Club and church.
Alex has not always been thrilled with my “obsession” with taking photographs! But one day I hope he’ll be glad I took these ones, and took the time to record the events, big and small, of his life story.
I can’t wait to turn the page and read the next chapter! Whatever new stories are over the page, I’ll be ready to click, create and celebrate them.
