I can't believe you are 11 years old. Yet when I look at you I realize that my "baby" is turning into a young man more each day. You are a mere inches from being as tall as I am. Your feet are much bigger than mine (you wear a men's size 8 now). With all of your CrossFit workouts you are giving your Dad and brother a run for their money in wrestling matches. I love that you are so adventurous. You are not afraid to try new things. You asked for things for your birthday to fuel your adventurous side.
Once again a hurricane has arrived for your birthday. This year is Isaac. Thankfully not as big as Katrina, but still making an impact. We have always known not to plan a beach vacation around your birthday because a hurricane ALWAYS arrives on your birthday, doesn't it?
