My Birthday Boy

Can you bear with me through one more birthday?

My dear son is turning twelve today. Time is going by way too quickly. You always hear that you will turn around one day and they are gone. Well, I'm here to say that it seems to be true.

Ian is a true delight. He is growing in maturity and is becoming a little man. He is helpful and can do everything that I can't do on the computer. He still loves Legos and can build amazing things. He is into Lego Robotics.

Last school year he worked hard with his team and they were able to win 1st place in our GA regional competition for First Lego League (FLL) and 5th in State for research. More than the winning, we saw him grow in maturity, confidence and he was learning to work well in a team situation. He is looking forward to this year's competition.

I'm so proud to be Ian's mom. Happy 12th birthday son!

Aww tell Ian happy birthday for me! I can't believe how old he's gotten. I still remember what he looked like when I entered the scene. Your right, it really does seem like time flies by too fast.

Happy birthday Ian! Can't believe he's so old now! I have vivid memories of his chubby little face in our apartment kitchen helping me sweep up a mess. :)
