He had a birthday recently. 14 years old! Finishing up middle school and preparing for high school! He’s excited and feels ready.
We had a nice day. Pizza and a movie for dinner. He didn’t want a cake, but did want macaroons. I guess he’s a birthday cookie guy, like his dad. He’s 5′ 6″ and didn’t even gloat that he’s taller than me, and he started shaving! Eeek!
He is a rock star in karate and a rock star in band. The middle school held their spring concert this week and Lex once again stole the show, in my opinion anyway! After the jazz band songs, the director even called out the percussion crew by name, just Lex and his buddy.
For March of the Armed Forces, the band director asked people in the audience to stand when their anthem is played. It was neat seeing how many (if any) people stood for each one.
He’s rocking his school work as well. Not only will he be on the honor roll again this year, but he was asked to give the 8th grade speech at Honors Night!! He said “thanks, but no thanks!”
He is such an amazing, smart, funny (and punny!), handsome fellow. He’s content with life, happy at home and at school, and moving forward as a competent and confident human being. I’m so lucky he’s part of my world. <3
