Two days ago, this little blondie turned nine.
(better late than never, right?)
How he went so quickly from that little boy to the cheese ball below, I don't know.
That smirk above? Cute. And now?
He is funny and smart and full of energy.
An end of school drawing brought home on the last day of school noted that "Summer Rocks". Then he put "Ow, my feet."
You know, because of the rocks.
Yuk, yuk yuk. Or hardy har har.
(I didn't get it at first, I must admit)
Smart, Exhibit B, his grade 3 report card.
And Exhibit C, full of energy.
This kid would play sports all day long every single day. Not only does he love it but one of his football coaches noted that he was so fun to coach because he takes direction well. As a parent, that makes me super proud.
I just wish he would listen to my direction a little better sometimes but we can't have everything now, can we?
(the next paragraph is for the annual photo book - feel free to skip and ignore my blatant bragging!)
He scored multiple touch downs in the flag football season that just ended (parenting fail as there are no photos or video) and as a defender in soccer managed to score a goal in the tournament they played in. It was a gorgeous goal - he raised to the top right corner. His coach took off his hat and bowed. Kamden, cool as the cucumber he is acted like he did this on a daily basis. This only served to crack us up. After we finished screaming with glee. (We cheer loudly whenever his team scores but because he plays defence 99% of the time, we may have cheered extra loud this time).
Happy Birthday to the kid who never fails to make me smile and make me proud as a Mom!
