Bladen and I are born in January, one week apart. We are both gaining a year this coming January!
He is a delightful little boy, but growing rapidly now. I can see huge changes in him. The changes really started in the fourth grade, but now he is in the fifth grade and the changes are immense. Next year will be the 6th grade and then onward to Jr. High and High School.
The years are going by.
It makes me really sad to see him growing so fast, but it is also really exciting to watch him developed into the young man he is going to be.
For instance when we were putting the roof on the house he helped scrap off the old shingles and then helped pull the nails that were left after the shingles came off.
Having grandchildren close by is full of lots of good, for them and for us!
