Double Digits!

It only seems a heartbeat ago that Baseball Boy was graduating from kindergarten. See his diploma? It is bent in half! That is so him. Carefree, silly, full of life. Often in his own little world but almost always with that adorable smile on his face!

And those cheeks! Oy, those cheeks. Don't you just want to reach out and pinch them right now!

And then, his "little twin" was born. Tigercub looked so much like B.B. when he was born, I had to go label all the old pictures to make sure I could tell them apart. From that day, B.B. has been Tigercub's biggest fan, biggest protector, biggest buddy.

There personalities are very similar...wild!

Among his other great loves, Gracie. He is the only child that really adores this dog. In fact he adores ALL animals. We really had to do a lot of fancy talking to talk him out of a hamster this year!

I have nothing to say, I just like this picture!

And is my "big boy"! He enters into double digits today! How did the time move so quickly?
Today we will do a little school (test tomorrow). Go to eat at his favorite Chinese place with one of his best friends, and just hang out until church activities tonight!
All he wants for his birthday is drum lessons! Because we really don't have enough noise in this house.
We'll party with a little cookie cake.
I'll cuddle and hug, and kiss. I'll rub that fuzzy head and pinch those precious cheeks...because time is running out! If the first 10 years went this fast, college is just around the corner.
Have a great day, I'm going to snuggle up with my ten year old!

Oh, this brought tears to my eyes because it caused me to remember how quickly children grow up. I assure you the next 10 will go by quicker than the first 10. What a fine young man and I know the Lord has great things in store for him. Love you!

I'm looking at double digits just around the corner. They sure do grow up fast!

Hey, I was thinking of you this morning. Beth said in her post that this chapter coming up is going to be a hard one. Have you been able to keep up with the study? I sure have realized a lot about myself so far. I am so glad that we have a God that is bigger than our insecurities! :)
