Sean just sent me an email with the subject line "mountains". We have been talking about climbing Mt. Whitney this year, and I put in for a lottery ticket for the overnight version. He is excited, and although I haven't heard back yet, I know we will climb something big this summer for sure. He has been doing research online about it, and has since decided that this is just the next step (we did Mt. Rose last summer) in our journey to the top. His attitude, and ability to set goals is amazing, and was articulated in the word doc he attached to the email, which looked like this: hi dad these are the mountains [emoticons for thumbs up/yes, angry face, wink]
This kid wants to climb all the way to the top.
I fucking love it.
