Happy 10th Birthday! I want to write down a bit about what your personality is like at this moment. You are a patient and determined kid. You have a beautiful singing voice and great dance ability too. You love your dogs and you kiss them goodbye every morning before school. You love soccer, running, tag and four square. You can build things easily and have great focus. Your writing, reading and math is coming along nicely. You are putting in the time and work using Moby Max to help you reach your fourth grade goals. You are not a morning person, but you manage to get to choir practice by 7:15 a.m., twice a week with no trouble. You love to hide, and sometimes scare us when you don’t come out of hiding right away. You have a terrific imagination and illustrate your incredible stories. Your artwork is very symmetrical and colorful. You don’t like it when Casey controls you or bosses you around and rather than use your words, you sometimes get a little rough. You are not afraid of the bigger guys coming at you during a soccer game. It is fun to watch you glide around them and get the ball away. Go defense! You still love for us to read to you at night, and you love a good snuggle.
We love you so much, Erik. We are so proud of you!
