Kettle Run and Gold Cup 5/8/14

Last week was a great week! Mom and I took Forrest to Kettle Run High School to talk about logistics for his upcoming graduation. While there Forrest also took part in an English class with some great students, said hi to past teachers and classmates, and participated in Senior's mock-interview day.

I sat in the back of the room as Forrest did his mock interview with a principal from a nearby middleschool. Forrest rocked it. He had great composure, articulated himself well, and enthusiastically talked about his goals of going to college and becoming a veterinarian. He answered some tough questions, and by the end of the 15 minute interview he was asked "how do you interview so well?" Forrest replied, "I think of the interviewer as already being a great friend." The interviewer said he'd have to pass along that great advice to his kids!

After all that work, we were ready for the best day of the year.. Gold Cup. The rain cleared and it was a glorious day with our 50,000 closest friends!

Love from Austin, Forrest, Mom and Dad

  1. Forrest,
    It really looks like you all were having a great time. Joe and I were watching the Kentucky Derby and he said he wondered if you went to Gold Cup. We were thinking about the races you invited us to attend last year and what a good time we all had. So when I read the post it was just neat to see you are out and about, even stronger than last year, enjoying yourself with that classic winning smile!
    Congrats on rocking that interview. what wonderful insight you shared about how to do such a great job. I will remember that for future interviews.
    You are getting closer and closer to your big day. You have worked so hard and overcome so much I can't wait for you to go across the stage and get that diploma! What a fantastic accomplishment. You are amazing!!

    Lots of hugs, love and prayers,
    Nurse Karen and family
