The big TWELVE! Happy Birthday, my oldest son! I can't believe that you are simply that old. It is mind-boggling. Only one more year until you are a teenager. (Sigh).
I also can not believe how tall you are! You make us proud with how much you've grown mentally and physically. We have been amazed at how much you care for your littlest siblings, how many chapter books you've consumed this year, and how helpful you are with big chores. We love you lots and are excited to watch you make the leap into young adulthood!
