I’m two weeks late on this post. Two weeks late because I want to put my head under the covers and scream like a two year old and yell, “NOOOOOOOO!!!!!” Brayden turned 16. He is so busy with his little life that we didn’t really do much celebrating. I took him to a burrito stand that he likes after football practice and I watched him eat it in the car while we watched the boys at their football practice. He didn’t even seem to care. This was today, and I still can’t look at the picture because it brings back the word ‘independence’ . I don’t do well with this. First day of driving to school 16 things about this kid that I love……..
He loves Jesus and you see this by his actions
He doesn’t have favorites.
He likes the greatest to the least. He doesn’t pass judgement.
I will say something about someone and he just shrugs his shoulders or smiles at me
He loves extreme sports. He loves to mountain bike, ski of cliffs, water ski, hike, ride horses…….
He’s a hard worker
. He is super good with kids (my boys think he is the best thing EVER)
He’s genuine He holds a high moral standard
He’s a team player
He’s tall and handsome
He likes junk food (ugh)
He likes the finer things (I tell him he better get a job one day to match his taste)
He plays hard
He sleeps hard
He is a friend
Brayden is heavy into the football season. Last weekend he got an interception, Oh gosh, I asked him if it surprised him as much as it did all of us in the stands. He said, “Ummm, YES!” He’s number 40 there on the end Happy birthday Brayden!
