Dear Noah....third time's the charm!

Finally got your new extra pair of glasses. Your vision has not changed in the past couple of years, which is good, but you wanted a 2nd pair of glasses to change things up from time to time. The ones you originally chose though, only lasted 2 days before cracking and the lens falling out. When we got the replacement for that pair, upon picking up the glasses at the eye doctor's office, that pair cracked before we even left. You picked a 3rd pair but chose a slightly different design from another company and those so far have held up great.

Here is your new 2nd look....

We went to the local public school last night for information on transitioning from high school to life on your own and college. It was somewhat informative and we picked up some information that we will definitely be able to investigate further. 

On our way into the building there were cheerleaders outside. You were very worried about them seeing you..or so I thought. In reality you were afraid I think of having to see them....because as we walked past them to get inside the building, you told me you were going to try to not pay any attention to them and you actually turned your head and looked away. I asked you why this would bother you so much and you said you felt like if you looked, you were betraying your girlfriend.

Wow...I think I have brought you up right! What girlfriend would not want her boyfriend to think like that and actually take steps to prevent themselves from perhaps being tempted? I did explain to you later at home it is pretty natural for men or women to "look" at the opposite sex, but the fact that you were aware of it and wanted to keep it in check and took steps to do so was pretty impressive to me. Any girl would be lucky to have you as a boyfriend!

I love you my young man who is growing up to be quite the adult.

To the moon and back, again and again, to infinity and beyond!
