I can't believe it. 16 years have flown by. For the most part I feel like the luckiest parent in the world. I know that feeling will change but I'll enjoy it while I can. Steven is a blessing in ways I could never have imagined and we have the best friends and support we could ever ask for. Steven has a way of bringing people together.

Steven has been saying the funniest things lately. It is so great to have him trying to use vocabulary even if he doesn’t do it correctly. It might even be better when he does is incorrectly. He calls hummingbirds, honeybirds-so cute. And one day when he was driving with his sister Bekah and she wanted him to roll up his window he was frusterated with her and said, “Oh Bekah, you leave me nuts”. I love it!
He went to camp last week and kept them laughing too. When he met his councilor she introduced her self with, “Hi, my name is Arden it sounds like Garden”, so he called her Garden all week. He stole her heart and told her he loved her. It was so fun hearing about all he did. Usually when he comes home all we get is, camp was fun, but this time he told us he swam, tried the zip line but chickened out (he said he would do it next year), danced, rode horses, and fished. When asked if he caught a fish he replied, “Almost”. He said he was afraid of them. He seemed so grown up when he got home. It is a nice break for us when he goes to camp but our home is just missing something when he is gone and it is always so fun to get him back. He was one of the councilors favorites (of coarse).
One thing that is a bit difficult when he gets home is that he wants to have something to do all the time and it is just not like that at home (boring). I try to do something each day, but still feel guilty when I see him wandering around or constantly trying to get me to do something with him or working on us to take him out to dinner (his favorite sport).
As bad as I don’t want summer to end school will be a welcome distraction.
