Completely Not Business Related lol!

I just have to share this incredible opportunity my son is experiencing. He had the opportunity to go to Tahiti for a college biology class involving research on geckos and reef fish. How cool is that! he had never flown before much less left the country but I couldn't let him miss this opportunity. I mean if you are going to be taking a summer biology class you might as well do it in Tahiti! My son is the first one in the picture on the right. They are doing a blog about their experiences since they can't really contact us via phone and the internet is sporadic. Good practice for me to start doing some letting go lol! They seem to be really having a good time even though they are working quite hard. Up early, late to bed with lots of activity in between. My son is on the gecko team, studying the difference in speed between different types of geckos. Anyway, I am so glad that he is having this opportunity and would encourage any parents out there, if you kid has an opportunity to do something like this, make sure that they take it! It was hard to see him leave and know that I would have minimal contact for two weeks but I think this will grow him as a person, move him much closer to adult hood (in a positive way) and is providing him with memories that will last a life time. I am sooo proud of him!
