Happy 13th Birthday!
Thirteen already?!...Is that really possible?!

To celebrate, here's thirteen random facts about our favorite teenage boy!...

- Mom's longest labor
- most reserved personality of we seven
- became a bookworm through the Sugar Creek Gang Series
- started mowing our entire yard at 9 years old
- made Anna a cute beaded necklace (this occured during the days of only girls in the family!)
- won chess games at 5 years old
- loves playing sports
- enjoyed Math...until this past year! [smile]
- Axis and Allies is amongst his favorite games
- did 15 underwater flips in one breath at age 10....Dad called him our fish!
- is a genius (...because he can do the peg game at Cracker Barrel and only leave one peg!)
- first paying job at age 7: a plumber's assistant, earning two dollars! (The plumber was doing our house.)
- between ages 5-6 he became "engaged" to and "married" Anna at least two dozen times [smile]


 We love you and are thankful for you!

"That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, and keep the paths of the righteous. "
{Proverbs 2:20}
