Ten years. Gosh! Some of it seems like yesterday, yet some of it I’d almost forgotten about… almost.
Five years ago, I was struggling on letting you go to school for the first time. But here you are, a few years later, about ready to begin the fifth grade. FIFTH GRADE! GAH!
Happy Tenth Birthday to my super hero son. Double digits, dude, can you believe it? I love you, my big, double-digit dude. So so much.
