in his element
from the age of three we knew he was going to be a bit of a challenge to raise
he always did things his own way
he never saw punishment as a deterrent for his bad behavior
always sees things in life much differently than others
the "norm" was never normal for him
seeing yellow caution tape was more of an invitation than a warning to stay away (unlike his mother)
very concrete thinker, black and white, no gray
focused on things that only interest him
says what he thinks
never plans anything more than 10 minutes in advance
doesn't like change but can adapt easily
puts all his eggs in one basket
always knew that whatever he chose to do we wouldn't have to worry
all the things that were most annoying about him now have become his strengths.
He's gone now. Flown the coop. Looking for a new adventure. From the Midwest to the Pacific coast. Pursuing whats been tugging at him for a couple years now.
I pray that all that we've taught him will be enough.
I pray that he will look to God for guidance and council.
Know that you are loved Cal.
