My Kid's Summer Job

My younger daughter, the one I refer to as Gothgrrl on the blog, has always loved elephants. From  a young age, she told me she was going to grow up and get a job taking care of elephants. I never told her she couldn't do that, but I said she might have to expand her focus to take care of all animals, if she wanted to work in a zoo or something. I guess she showed me. She is working on a degree in zoology, and is spending the summer interning in an elephant sanctuary in Thailand. She's the one in the middle. She found the place, got the job, received a grant, and made all the arrangements herself. I couldn't be more proud.

What a great kid. Most people never find their place in the world and actually get to do it. She looks so happy.

How great! She is clearly mature beyond her years, knows her own mind, and is willing to do what's necessary to achieve her dreams. You did a great job, raising such a mature young woman!
