{milestones} the little guy is eight

eight years old.

do you know what that means?

it means that i have been a mom for more than half of our married life.

we waited seven years to have kids.

let me tell you, this eight year old made it all worth it.

he is an amazing human being.

he’s loving…he loves his family and friends like crazy.

he’s funny…especially when he’s not trying too hard to be funny.

he’s strong…headstrong, heart strong, and physically strong.

he’s brave…he’s willing to try anything…sports, food, new activities.

he’s smart…he doesn’t love our summer learning packets, but he does love to learn. he excelled in first grade, and i think second grade is going to be an awesome year for him!

he has his own opinions, ideas, and thoughts.

i love him so very much.

i asked him some questions this morning to get a feel for how he feels at eight…
