Yesterday he stomped through the backyard beating down the ‘wild and dangerous trees’ with his little plastic sword, the brave explorer going ‘where no man has dared to go before’, sometimes hunting down dragons and sometimes collecting stones to build his own home.

Today as he packs for college I know that the true adventure begins, as armed only with a pen and grit, he’s going to traverse the wild and dangerous real world, slaying his own dragons, building his true home.

Go forth my brave explorer, have your adventures, win your battles, conquer the world.
