Sweet Sixteen in Every Way

My little boy Logan is now sixteen. I know he is not little but for his entire life he and Mason were the little boys. It stuck and I need it now for psychological reasons, so just humor me. I am amazed at how fast his life has flown by. He has truly brought joy into my life for all sixteen years. He has a smile for everyone he meets and tries to keep peace. I have tried to make him dance at Stake dances and he has put his foot down so that is a battle I have given up. He love his sports and we are very impressed with how hard he works to succeed at whatever athletic event he is currently involved in. He is a great brother to Mason and he will sit and watch Melanie's favorite shows with her. I know that the friendships he has with his brothers and sisters will last forever. His favorite people are Talia and Tristan and he plays with them and never tires of it. He has always loved kids and still does as he plays with his cousins no matter their age and loves to be the ring leader. I feel grateful to have him as my son and look forward to the next two years of high school, then his mission, and then college. It will be a great ride.

hey lady!! good to hear from you!! yes, we're back. we've actually been working with a long-time family friend who's a realtor in town: john gregg. i don't know much about house shopping etiquette but do you only get to use one? we're just getting started and trying to get a feel for where we want to plant.

thank you so much for the comment and i'm sure we'll be seeing lots more of you w/ a new basketball season on the horizon (and both my nephews playing on the same team now)! are you going to stephanie's holiday party this week? maybe i'll see you then, too.

I can't belive Logan is 16! I will also always picture him as a little boy, but don't tell him that! He is such a sweet heart, and I know he is a great kid, even with how little I see him.
