Happy Birthday, Lawson!
Ten. Double digits.
That's a big deal.
You're still one of the funniest kids I know.
We've had three different people that help with church youth group comment on how your personality is really starting to come out now. They only thought we raised quiet, shy kids. =)
Everyone at school still thinks you're awesome. Just a good all-around kid.
With awesome hair. (that has gotten a tiny bit out of control at times this year! We need to schedule haircuts more often!)
This has probably been my hardest year with you, though.
Nothing has been easy between us, it seems.
No direction is given without an argument or talking back or half a dozen questions of "Why?"
It's getting old.
Love you to pieces, but you're giving me gray hair this year, buddy. (More gray hair than I already have!)
Gray hair and frazzledness aside... you're still my favorite little man.
You're my basketball, football, baseball loving...
TV, laptop, technology crazy...
outdoor, messy, dirty finger nailed...
great student, awesome reader, science loving...
ornery, button-pushing, even more ornery...
favorite red-head kid.
Here's hoping the next 8 years are a little less crazy, though. =)
