He's NINE!


Adrian, my sweet and loving little guy, here we are at 9!  This year your look is completely different, glasses!  You have been very responsible with your glasses and we never see you without them now. 

What do you love? The same things you have loved your whole life. Tractors. Trucks. Repeat.  Your John Deere collection is immense. You don't care. You want more.You absolutely love having your own money and shopping-both in store and online.  What do you look for when you are shopping?  Tractors. Carhart. Construction. Camouflage. Repeat.

You have grown quite fond of biking this year.  And of course you love swimming. You rocked your overnight camping experience. You have a deep love for books and for your artwork.  The details you add to your pictures are exquisite. 

One of the biggest growths you have made this year is your ability to public speak.  You went from the kid who refused to say anything to a kid who needs no notes and talks well beyond the allotted time. You look at the audience, talk loudly and connect with them. You even crack jokes on stage! It's been so fun watching your confidence soar.

One of the things I love about you most is how you relate to other people. You are kind to everyone (except sometimes your sisters drive your nuts, of course). In a nursing home, you can go strike up a conversation with a resident. You relate well with adults. You can talk to kids older than you and the same age as you.  You adapt your play to play with younger kids. You are very helpful with babies.  You have been consistently respectful to your teachers this last year at church, 4-H and homeschool co-op. The person you are becoming makes me very proud. 

You are expensive to feed.  The other day your dad watched you eat 5 pancakes, a full glass of milk, a plum, an apple, a bowl of yogurt and you were still hungry so I gave you cereal.  That was just breakfast.  You are an adventurous eater (except you loathe scrambled eggs) and will try anything.  You are a big fan of soups, homemade bread, any fruit and your dessert of choice would be a fruity dessert or a fruity ice cream. 

My most favorite part about you is how much you love me. You are with me when the sun rises and with me when the sun sets and like to spend every minute in between at my hip.  You are STILL upset when I go to work.  We have a huge house, 30 acres and if you had your choice, you'd never leave my side.  In fact, you said that I'm going to homeschool you college so you can stay here with me.  At one point you were afraid to spread your wings. It's not like that now...you are happy to do new things. But you remember your roots vividly and show me how important I am through your love and affection.
