Yesterday was Bob's birthday. He is 16. He is now out driving my car. Without me.
It's amazing how fast this time comes around. He was just a baby. See? Isn't he cute?
That was taken yesterday! Yesterday, I tell you! And now he looks WAY more like the man in that photo than the baby.
I feel so blessed to have Bob. He is a hard worker, and an all around helpful young man. I could go on and on about what a wonderful kid he is. How he's been running his own, very successful landscaping business for years, owining all his own tools and hiring his friends as contract labor.
How he bought his own truck, with his own money before he was even old enough to drive it.
How he's overcome his dyslexia to the point that he tested high enough on the entrance test at the local community college in the Fall to take College English. How he's actively persuing training for the carreer he wants when he graduates (Fireman)
How he's a man of God and leader among his peers. Sometimes I can't believe that God has blessed me with such amazing sons (his brother's has a similar list of accomplishments, but his birthday is a few weeks away, more on that later!)
Whoever said, in regards to raising children, that the days are long and the years are short knew their stuff.
And now...this. It happened overnight.
