Week 1... "LOVE"

Ok, I was NOT going to blog today, we have an inspection on the house tomorrow so I really don't have time to sit here, BUT, my sister made me feel guilty so here I am.

My joy today is my oldest, Bonez. He is almost 13 & let me tell you, he is SO much fun! We've never had the perfect relationship, we are WAY too much alike. Lately, he has become my shopping buddy & let me tell you, I absolutely love this kid! (Well, I always have, but you know what I mean). He has the best personality & it's fun to watch him "find" himself. Last night, I had a few last minute things I needed to go get, I asked if he wanted to go with me & he jumped at the chance. We had the BEST time, talking, laughing & just enjoying our time together. I can't believe how grown up he is getting. It's exciting & sad both at the same time. I am so proud of the young man he is becoming, he is the most responsible "child" I have come across (I've even had teachers tell me that), he's funny, he's smart, hey, he's even cute (when you can see his face LOL), he's extremely athletic, not just athletic, but a natural athlete. He's a great big brother, he's kind, & is self motivated & when he decides he wants something, he gives it 110%! He has a lot of friends & I'm so proud of him for the friends he chooses to hang around with. He knows what he wants & isn't afraid to stand up for it. He's just an all around great kid!

Anyway, Bonez is my "joy", my sweet boy, my oldest, I cherish the time we have been spending together lately. I love you B!

awww, how sweet. Send him my way, I haven't spent much time with him lately. Plus, maybe some of that responsibility can rub off on Conner!

Brenda I can't believe he is almost 13 !!!! I remember seeing you holding him when he was just a tiny baby. It sounds like he is becoming an amazing young man .
