I Love This Kid...

Max turned 8 last month.  He is one stellar kid.  He's knocked my socks off this year with the fun run, his social blooming, great help and maturity with me through the pregnancy, and his brilliance in school and Legos.  The kid is plain wonderful.  I couldn't trade him for the world.

We had the sweet experience of baptizing him while in Utah for the Harmon Reunion. It was perfect. He was smiling, listening, just dear...   He has worked on reading his scriptures on his own since being baptized.   He has tried to be so, SO good.   I just adore his heart and who he is.

3rd grade began this week for Max and he came back with the words on his lips "Mom, I LOVE my teacher!"  He couldn't wait to go again today!  If only a teacher knew what a gift that is for a mother!  I'll write and tell her.  I think it will be a great year.  Feeling really joyful about that.

Isn't he cute?

I woke up one morning to hear the kids talking about going up on the roof with Glenn... that popped me out of bed fast!  Yikes!  But, they were all okay... so maybe I am overprotective???

Last day of summer fun-- Santa Barbara :).  Rented Surrey (Max helped pedal!), beach time, visited an old Catholic Mission, ate pizza in a college town, and found an ice cream sandwich cookie shop!  Let's say I had major contractions that night...

Max with his best buddy and cousin for a sleepover.  They were awesome.  Whispered quietly while looking through books on snakes (to not wake Ali and Jonas). Studied scriptures together.  Went right to bed when I left (without being asked!). Can it get any cuter from two 8 year old boys?!
