Jaron -Webelo Awards

Jaron has been working hard on earning his Webelo. He is over half way there. Last night he received several pins for passing some things off. We are so proud! Doesn't he look handsome in his uniform? I've always called him "buddy" or "cute boy". He is starting to not like the "cute boy" one. I guess I'll settle for "buddy" for now. But he will always be my cute boy in my heart. Sometimes I wish I was able to give him a brother -but that wasn't in the cards for us. We always tell him that Daddy is also his brother in God's eyes. And that he should be thankful he has a tomboy for a sister, who loves to play with boys. He doesn't seem to mind that he doesn't have a brother -I think it bugs me more than anything. He doesn't know any different than having two sisters. And he is fine with it. My dad was the only boy in his family -he has six sisters. The girls definitely dominate on my side of the family -on Toby's side the boys dominate. I am grateful that I was able to have a son, and that he has such a sweet, determined spirit. He is a wonderful son and a protective big brother to his younger sisters. He has a huge heart. He is almost as tall as I am -which is not my favorite thing in the world. I want him to stay little -obviously that's not going to happen. He's going to be one tall man. I look forward to continuing to see him grow and become a wonderful young man. If he takes after his dad -he will be one amazing man.
