A Son Grows Up


This is Ben in the 2nd grade. Our local school participated in a district-wide gifted program that was housed in a portable at a school several miles away. The kids got to be with Mr. Dugger in his wonderful Quest classroom once a week. Ben is in the back row on the far right. 


This is a more recent photo of Ben (4th from left) hanging out with friends in New York City, where he has lived since going off to NYU quite a few years ago. He is an accountant by day, and an actor by night. James (far right) was a classmate from 3rd grade on.

  1. Love reading more about your family...and handsome Ben! Ben and I have a lot in common. I'm an accountant by day and an actor by night; well, the first part is true. At night I act like a tired old lady!
