Back to school!

It's hard to believe that we celebrated Reilly's graduation from high school 4 years ago! Since then, he's completed a year-long leadership internship at Gateway Centre Church, spent a year at the Art Institute of Seattle studying digital film-making and video production, earned an Associates of Arts in Biblical Studies from Logos Bible College, traveled to Mexico (twice), Israel, Hawaii, CA, DC, MD, VA, FL, and Baton Rouge, moved in to his own apartment, volunteered steadfastly in several capacities at his church, and worked at a local restaurant for 2 1/2 years. Inspired, engaged (not the marital kind!), ignited.

Today was his first day of classes at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, where he enters as a second-year BFA student majoring in sculpture and print-making. Later this week, he opens his first solo exhibit at an arts collective on Capitol Hill in Seattle. Opening night is Thursday and it's part of the Capitol Hill Blitz Artswalk. Mika, Josh and I plan to attend and are thrilled to see Reilly's film-works installation.

Hats off to you, Reilly. We love you, son!
