My Travel Story

by: Stephanie Dodson Start Date: Jun 8, 2016 - End Date: Jun 7, 2017
I've thought long and hard about what I wanted to say here. We have talked about taking a trip to NY and DC for years now. Tristin has such a strong love for history it just fits. Everything about it captures his attention. It always has. Last year, he was offered an opprotunity to go on a school trip overseas (March 2017). After sitting down as a family we decided that trip would not be best. Thats when we started talking about what to do for his graduation and this trip came up. He's not really big into parties, never has been. (Unless we are talking about bowling for his birthday! He's always down for that) This trip has always been something he's wanted to do. We are going to give it to him! This kid is AMAZING. He is quiet, polite, a hard worker and he loves his family something firece! I said he was a hard worker... He goes to school and works 2 jobs. (one of which is seasonal, but he still does it.)

We thought that, instead of people sending him graduation gifts, donations towards his trip would be amazing! Any donation we receive will go towards his part of the trip, and any extra things he may want to do, extra nights, souviners, etc. We started this campaign early so we'd have time to work everything out. We have a year!!! (YAY!)

If you are able to send him some money, we thank you. If you are able to just send congratulations and well wishes, we thank you for that too. We appreciate each and every one of you and thank you for being in our lives!!

  • Time Is Moving Quickly

    Time is moving quickly
    We are almost there. The beginning of fall has happened. We're talking about college, military, scholarships. Caps and Gowns will be ordered in December. DECEMBER!! What?!?! It's moving along. We talk about our trip more often then the rest of the stuff it seems. (haha)My history buff is SO EXCITED about this trip! I'm happy to see his excitement! So this was just an update as to what's going on now. Share, if you feel so inclined, donate, give words of encouragement. Whatever works! I appreciate you all! (And so does Tristin)
    Much Love!
  • We Are In The Final Stretch!

    We are in the final stretch!
    The school year has started! We are now counting down the days until Tristin will be graduating! We are beyond excited to see what his future has in store! A quick thank you again to the ones who have donated, promised to donate, and who have been wishing Tristin luck this last year of high school. Without you all, we would be lost! <3
