was it just 11 years ago that we were celebrating the birth of our second son, forrest? for the past week we have been celebrating his birthday! he and his friends enjoyed a fun game of miniature golf last weekend, followed by burgers at home! last night, for his "actual" birthday, forrest's gmama and gdaddy took us to golden corral (his choice) for his birthday supper! we had a fun night!
forrest has brought us much joy and laughter in his 11 years! he is quite a funny kid; we never know what he is going to say! he is very much a "people person," like me, and loves to play with friends. he is good-natured, and is a terrific big brother! wyatt ADORES forrest; forrest is so patient with him! it would not surprise me if he went into the medical field because of his little brother, he would be a terrific pediatric therapist....or physician!
we visited the potential (and likely) middle school for forrest this week over in pace. it was very clean and QUIET..... shockingly quiet!!! he was VERY happy with the school, which i am very thankful for! and he expressed an interest in joining the band.... oh my! in 6th grade you are either in band or p.e., so i guess he is going to explore band! i was a band kid from 7th grade through graduation, and i loved it! we will see how he likes it! i think that it will help him to connect and make friends more quickly at his new school in a new town.
we are so thankful that God (and kym and my mama....who both take credit for forrest being born) blessed us with this precious boy, who is becoming a compassionate and caring young man.....
