Today is son Isaac's 23rd birthday. My how time flies. We will be going down to Anderson tomorrow to take him out for supper and to give him his presents. I will update the post then so as not to give away what we got him.
He is still living in Anderson as a staff member at The Exodus House. They became operational this past year and have made many improvements to the house itself. I think they have also learned a whole lot as well. Since it's not really a 'paying' job, he has also started working at an exotic animal farm as well as substitute teaching. I have to admit, we were kind of glad he started the teaching, as that was always something he seemed to want to do. I'm sure he gained a great deal of experience teaching everything from kindergarten to high school on any given day.
This past year he made a visit to friends in Denver, CO, as well as a trip to Spain (the country) to see his girlfriend (who was there for school). He may have made some other trips that I can't remember right now, or didn't know about in the first place.
Sometimes I wish our son had a more 'normal' job, where he went to work each day, got a nice paycheck, had insurance, and could afford things like a car and whatnot... but we are very proud of him for what he is doing and who he has become. We couldn't ask for a better son. Happy birthday, Bud! Love ya.
Here is a pic of him playing drums in one of his many bands. I think he plays in two of their church bands (drums in one, guitar in the other), and I think this is the band Anderson's Most Wanted.
