Reading story after story... Lyle the Crocodile, Good Night Moon, Where The Wild Things Are, Hank the Cow Dog and the list goes on. Early mornings... "all done sleeping mommy" usually around 5am. The 4+ trips to the ER before he was 5. Endless energy and then a flop on the carpet and sleeping like a baby.
TBall and soccer from the age of 6.... Add lacrosse at 9. Years of competitive soccer led to hours on the sidelines, a lot of great friends and really fun watching him develop into a fine player. Even more impressive was watching him give it all up to make the Varsity Golf team at 16...this was the beginning of his focus and drive. He worked hard on his own for his goal- and he achieved it.
We wondered many days would he even get out of high school and then watched with pure admiration as he matured and focused started taking control of his future. Taking responsibility and making it happen. Working hard, paying for insurance and gas.... Becoming a young man who cares for his grandparents as they cared for him. He impresses me....but I maybe a tad biased. Okay...done for now :)
