A whole decade!

Happy birthday to the greatest 10 year old I know!
We all love you very much, Brock.
In one decade we have shared a lot of laughter, tears, hugs, beach time, Spongebob Squarepants, movies, music, musicals, playtime, whipped cream and so much more!
I remember what a warm, mellow day it was in Florida the day you were born. You were such an easy-going, quiet baby. Teagan was so happy to have a new baby brother and your dad was thrilled to have a son. Since this day in 1999, I have watched you grow into an amazing boy. You love learning and trying your best- even though we have to push you sometimes. =) You love outdoors and computers and playing with your sisters and loving on Crew too. You love history- especially American history, although you just read Diary of Anne Frank and you were inspired by her legacy.
You love being a peacemaker and hardly ever need to be told more than once to do something when asked. You are thoughtful, caring and even sarcastic- at just the right time. Your dream is to do something on Broadway someday, but even if that never happens, just know I think you are a star already!
Here's wishing you a very happy birthday (even though you had to miss school because you're sick). I hope the next decade is even better!

Happy Double Digits as we called it in our house. 10 is a fabulous year.
My son now 11 had pnuemonia on his 10th birthday and we had to postpone a party and everything.
Hope you are on the road to recovery fast.

What a great post!

Our oldest son also took the dive into double digits yesterday. If the next decade goes a fast as this one has....oh dear! :)

The first photo in this post is so cute and yet so sad at the same time.

May God bless your day!
