Above is my oldest, Cole. I try to capture the spirit of the kid in front of me, and this does it well. He is such an independent, yet good kid. He always has been, as I remember him overly passionate about guitar and electronics from as early as three. He would drag all the electronics he could find into his bottom dresser drawer when he could barely walk. When I finally needed his drawer for clothes, I didn’t know what any of the electronics were and was forced to just put them all in a bin for us to figure out later! One day I went into the living room and found him playing Guitar Hero with black under his eyes. I asked him what he was doing, and he said, “I’m Izzy Sparks.” He cried, however, when I tried to truly make him Izzy for Halloween by putting him in a Hannah Montana wig. That didn’t work out so well- Lol.
Cole chose to love God on Father’s Day of 2010. But he also loves to play Rock and Roll on guitar, and lists his favorite bands as the Foo Fighters and Chris Daughtery. He started reading around three and finds technology like Skype, Twitter, Powerpoint and Facebook on his own. My favorite quote of his is was when I was reselling for Adobe; Cole said, “I don’t want to work for Adobe because Microsoft has better development.” I keep telling Cole and Google to look out for each other. I would love to help put a camp together of gifted kids like Cole, dedicated to Google’s 30% projects. I believe kids are rooted in their being by the age of five, and this one will be a development leader at Google someday. I grew up as a camp counselor for the Y, and would love to help Google with something like this.
