Punk rarely poses for a picture, but since he failed to turn in his school picture form not once, but twice, I forced him into a few snapshots with me at the local college.

Punk's changed a lot this summer. All for the better. He is finding his way - happy, confident, comfortable with who he is and the choices he's making. Middle School was tough for him at first.  Not that he'd let anyone but his family know it. But now - things are different - he's more teenager than kid, and while I miss that little boy terribly, I absolutely adore the funny, laid-back, sweet-tempered guy he's turning out to be.
