Setting Sail

Honolulu-046-761403

I've mentioned Zac Sunderland before... and by now you may have heard about him on the news... but you truly need visit the link below and see what he's been up to. He just arrived in Hawaii after leaving So Cal three weeks ago. Why 3 weeks? Because at the mature age of 16, he's attempting to be the youngest person to sail solo around the world.

16... can you even imagine?! I have a 16 year old... and while I'm very relieved that he is no longer trying to ride his bike off the roof, I'm a bit concerned that he just figured out that the movies on the wall at Blockbuster are arranged in alphabetical order.

Zac also happens to be a great kid... mature, polite, helpful... all the things mother's pray for in a young man.

Please visit his blog and support him with your encouragement and prayers. I know both mean a lot to him as his journey really just begins.

You can find out more about him at his main website too.

Wow! Amazing kid!

Between snakes and jumping off the roof, your house must be a blast!

LOL about the Blockbuster thing. I love those when your kids come up with an oh-so-obvious revelation like that... and make me think, "Oh come on, just when I was thinkin' maybe you were have bright!" And my next thought is why would you even say that out loud for all of us to hear :o)

(Our latest had to do with the 19 y/o actually realizing the skin on the chicken she was eating was actually the skin... "What, you mean it's really the SKIN!?! Eww!" I thought she might lose her lunch when she mad the connection!)
