jacob helmetJacob turns the big One Four today!

One of the things I love about our family is that everyone loves birthdays.

And everyone goes out of their way to make whoever is having the birthday feel extra special.

Today was no exception.

Pool cues.  Duct tape.  Cards and cash.  Bodacious Barbecue.  Nothing Bundt Cakes.  A little mishap at Tyler State Park.

And a family effort to make the middle son feel like the center of attention (if only for a day).

jacob and bowen with lizardsJacob you bring your mom and I such joy.

I love how cool you are (and how cool you think you are).

I love your effort and your energy and your endless supply of going the distance.

I love your competitiveness and your compassion.

Your faith and your humility.

I love that you have such a good heart.

And I am so proud of the young man you are.

I have to say, I am looking forward to football season.

But most of all, I am looking forward to seeing how God will reveal Himself to others through you this 8th grade school year.

I love you Buddy!

Love, Dad
