Coming of Age

For some young men, it's a bar mitzvah. For Hindu tribes its is the Thread Ceremony and for the Gambian you are circumcised at the appointed time where a boy becomes a man. Makes me, for one, glad to not be Gambian. And finally ... for the American lad, it is the rollercoaster.

Growing above the 42" mark on the wall is a big deal in our house - at least it is now, since this is the monumental mark that allows one to ride the Journey to Atlantis roller coaster. And we did just that - my oldest son has been watching his progress for weeks on the wall chart, and finally made that defining scribble on the wall. We promptly head to Sea World ... get the wristband height clearance ... and ride it 3 times. Twice in a row and one more bonus time right before we left. This will be a day long remembered.

My little boy's growing up.

Nice to see that you are teaching your son to experience new religions like Kabahla! Way to go - I'm sure his faith will be stretched and challenged like never before, at the ripe old age of 4.
