Can it be?!? Nine years ago today this little guy came into our lives and began an adventure that will make a lasting impact on myself.
He's a sponge for learning and life! It's been so fun to teach him and watch him soak up the knowledge and ask questions why. The world and all it's history is too vast for him to grasp right now, but he wants to see it and understand it. He spends much of his imagination applying what he learns which truly warms my soul since knowledge applied can become wisdom.
Friends and family hold his heart! He unabashedly cries whenever farewells are said to family or close friends. They embody joy to him and frequently says that life is so much better and fun when shared with others. The introvert in me can hardly keep up with the extrovert in him, but he's right that it's in those intimate connections that we find meaning and happiness.
