I had the opportunity to travel to Illinois and witness my good friend, and fellow blogger, Andrew graduate high school. I have known Andrew for over 5 years and have helped him along the way. I used to tutor him over Skype, helping him with math and some other subjects. I have spent time with Andrew in person over the last several summers, including trips to two national card shows.
I'm so very proud of Andrew. He is a great guy and an even better friend. I'm really happy to see how far he has come, and how far he will go. It means a lot to me that he wanted me to come out here and share this moment with him and his family.
