Almost 11

Tomorrow, my boy will be 11! I can hardly believe it! Seriously, where has time gone?!?! My middle name should be inconsistent - two years ago I gave him a little quiz just before bed the night before he turned 9 with plans to do it every year following. I don't know what happened last year but we'll try again now and hopefully this tradition will stick. My intentions are good!

His answers this time are not all that different from what they were in 2012. I love that he still thinks of his family in #9 even if we come after his love of sports and that he still immediately considers me as the kindest person he knows. He's a big guy, almost as tall as me already. He really does LOVE sports, music, hanging out with his buddies, traveling to Vancouver to see family/friends, watching hockey/baseball, playing Clash of Clans, cliff jumping/skimming and life really. He's a pretty easy going happy kid. He's only just begun to test the waters of talking back. I'm sure we are still in for some fun in the years to come but we'll see. Right now he's a good little big man! I love him beyond words and am so proud of who he is.
