The Going Away Speech

My kids left for Galveston today with their school. Before I completely freaked out I managed to impart some wisdom.

No scriptures came to mind. I didn't think to pray. Just a few words about coming home safely.

To Caleb: "Be respectful and wise. I know how it is when you get with friends. You get cocky. Think you're invincible. Maybe you take chances. Don't . Be brave, but not stupid."

To Chloe:  "The elbow is the hardest part of your body. Use it."

It needs some refining, I know.

I've been told that the hardest part is my head. As for going away speeches, short and to the point is probably more impact fil than drawn out and eloquent, especially with teenagers.
