Whew...not sure where February went to. It's been a busy month around here. Hockey has been in full swing but winding down too. We had a Winter Recess that allowed us to tag along with my husband to sunny Florida and we celebrated Matt's birthday!
Matt turned twelve less than a week ago. This past year has all the hormones kicking in at high throttle. Emotions are close to the surface, friends are wonderful one day and mean the next and parents are slowly turning into knowing all to knowing absolutely nothing. It's exciting to watch, yet maddening, sad and frustrating all at the same time. Patience has become a staple in my vocabulary as of late. Some days it all works out for the best and others, well, we just muddle through.
We couldn't be prouder of Matt. He's a high achiever in everything he touches (well maybe not his room, but he can't be great at everything), has a great sense of humor, is sensitive to those around him (again needs to work on this with his brother) and just gobbles up knowledge at an alarming speed. His creativity astounds us. He love photography and making movies. He sets goals and sticks with them. Can't ask for much more from this kiddo.
So we wish Matt a Happy Birthday and for a year full of exciting opportunites, kind friends, and a smooth transition into the teenage years, for both him and us!
We love you Matt!
