~first day of 7th grade~

Somehow, someway, my son is old enough to be starting 7th grade today.

Today, Stephen, you start something new. And as corny as mom is sometimes, I think you realize it too. I see you changing, but staying the same. More confident. Still kind. Always thoughtful. Trying new things....but loving our traditions. Your Dad and I are so proud of you. Our love for you is unrivaled on this earth. We appreciate who you are and who you are growing to be. {We still want you to pick up after yourself better!}

Oh, and the tallness thing - 5' 9 1/2" is tall enough for 12, doncha think? :)

I have one in the 8th grade and one in the 11th grade. Life never seems to quiet down in our house.
Fall baseball has started up so our sundays will be full of baseball.
Enjoy your 7th grader.
