He's 11! Happy Birthday Adrian!



9 1/2

11 years old, Adrian!  What is 11 year old Adrian like? Pretty much the same as 10 year old Adrian, 9,8,7,6,5,4,3 or 2 year old Adrian. You have liked what you like your whole entire life. Tractors. Cows. Trucks. Related machinery. You still collect all these things with wheels and love setting up farms and quarries outside. You sometimes let your sisters join. Sometimes. You always have a truck in your pocket.

You also love to eat.  You've barely started eating a meal before you ask if there are seconds or what's for dessert or what's the next meal.  You pretty much eat anything, except you cannot stand eggs. 

You ask 10,000 questions every minute.  Okay, that's an exaggeration, but that's what it feels like sometimes! 

You enjoy routine and are very responsible. You keep your room just so. You know what your jobs are and you usually do them without being asked. Often you will step up and do a job you know needs to be done, just to help.  I think your favorite job is hanging clothes on the line in the summer and shoveling in the winter. 

You are an amazing artist. I have given you prompts each week over the last year challenging you to take your drawings to the next level and they keep on getting more intricate.  Your trucks in particular are so detailed, 3D and now have all these shadows. 

You enjoy swimming, horseback riding, biking, x country skiing and nature walks. You are excited to take up archery lessons this fall. You plan on being a game warden. 

Your newest hobby this past year has driven me crazy. You love to get trucks to beep at you. You wave to everyone.  People are constantly beeping driving by...which you love.

School would be much better, in your opinion, if you were just read to and you could draw simultaneously all the live long day.  But, writing and math, and you are doing better coping with those things you want to go away. You love being homeschooled and frequently say that you want to be homeschooled your whole life.

I think my favorite thing about you is your heart. You get along with people of all ages and try to say and do kind things for everyone.  You try to stay on the right path, but when you fall off, you are good about apologizing and working to do better. 

Your quote today is noteworthy: "I don't really want to be a teenager, I don't want to grow up. I just want to be 11 forever."  11 is that fabulous.  I am looking forward to a full year with you as an 11 year old, Adrian!
