Happy Birthday, Jackson!!!

Dear Jackson,

Today is your 9th birthday. 9 whole years! I have no clue where the time has gone, but one thing is for make my life sweeter! When we were about to welcome you into the world, I had no idea about how much you would change our lives for the better. You are delightful, and I'm so proud that I can say that you are my son.

At 9 years old, you are an absolute mess! Funny, kind, sweet, serious and sensitive, all rolled up into one. Your Dad and I often point to each other whenever you do or say something, and it totally reminds us of ourselves. Most of the time, we know exactly who you are acting like! You are in a pranking stage right now, and you've pulled a couple of good ones on your Dad and I. Better watch out! You love your family so much, and have a huge heart for Jesus. It's easy to see him living in you!

You are in 4th grade now, and are we know that you are going to do fantastic again this year. For the first time ever you will be playing baseball this fall, and we are excited to see how much you will progress as you move up into the next league. You want to be in the military when you grow up, and maybe even fly airplanes. I can't wait to see that!

Somehow it feels like I blinked, and here we are with you on your 9th birthday! You have one foot in childhood, and one foot in tweenhood, and I'm so proud of the young man you are, and can't wait to see how God will use you in the future. We are so amazingly proud of you, and love you to the moon and back. Happy Birthday, sweetie!

First Day of 4th Grade!!!

Today is Jackson's first day of 4th grade. How is that even possible? This handsome kid of ours agreed to let me pick his clothes for the first 3 days of school this year, and then after that he can pick his clothes (within reason). He had me drive him to school today, but wants to ride the bus tomorrow. No doubt about it....he's growing up!

What is your favorite subject in school? PE.

What is your favorite thing to eat for school lunch? Pizza

What did you like about Mrs. Judge's classroom? I like that I'll be sitting next to a friend from last year.

What is going to be the best thing about fourth grade? Ummmm.....not being in 3rd grade anymore?

What do you think about having homework? I don't like it, but at least Mrs. Judge says she doesn't give a lot of homework.

What is your favorite color? Green.

Are you nervous about school? A little bit.

What are you nervous about? I don't want there to be any bully's.

How many friends do you think you will have? Everybody in my class.

How many girlfriends? (Insert blank stare.) NONE. Well, maybe 1. Or not.

So that's the answers from the first day of 4th grade. I can't wait to hear about school when I see him this afternoon!
