    Welcome to the 21st century but beware the Blog Addiction! Now we have to figure out how to monetize the site and create a revenue stream for Cherokee on this blog and you’ll be set. Put the kids to work on t-shirts, folk art, etc. Best of luck. Janet

    I can’t wait for the great words of wisdom that will come from this. I also hope people look to ccbs as a great place to send their boys when they are hurting.

    David, It is so good to hear of your great work. I have two girls (age 9 and 4) and wish there was somewhere like this for them. They go to a christian school and it is great, but Cherokee looks truly great. I am looking forward to reading any and all advice from other parents!

    This is a wonderful idea. my son, Albert, was amoung the first 4 students at Cherokee when it first opened! I still think so warmly of his time there. It gave me hope and strength to continue on the journey as a loving, supportive parent, what a hard and wonderful job it is! Rachel B.

  14. Leigh Eddy says:

    We’ve made it through 3 weeks as members of the Cherokee Family. One Seminar, and I feel like we belong! Thanks to all who participated and helped us start this journey.

    David, my family spent 25 years gathering at Emerald Isle for vacation. It is still the “talked about” highlight at family reunions all with Christmas celebrations! Your advise is wise. As a mother with grown children, I look back on those days and it is such a good reminder that we never get these precious moments back. Stealing a classic line from the old movie “Love Story”…”Love is never having to say I didn’t spent enough time with my kids.” Blessings!

    another nice blog david ! Hunter and I had a great reunion trip to cherokee creek. Every day I am full of gratitude for the school! I love your Island teaching piece. My family has a beach house on the coast of N.H. that the boys and I have spent every summer ( except 1) since they were born and I spent every summer of my life there before they were born. It truly was the the most powerful family experience that I look back on. thanks for sharing.
    best memories
