It's official. Nick is 12! And a YOUNG MAN!!!
I still can't believe it. It seems like last week, I was 2 weeks over due, and he had NO intentions of coming out! Sometimes I'm sad we didn't get more time, with just me and him-He and Parker are 2 years apart. It is what it is.
Friday was INSANE!!! Nick started school, and had a BLAST! He tells me he never got lost. But had to ask for directions...uh huh...He had lunch with his cute little girlie friend, and really liked all his teachers. *happy sigh*
Friday night, he went on an overnighter with scouts. So he was gone, with in 2 hours of getting home from school! Finally Saturday afternoon, he and Dad, went to get his birthday present. He got a custom skateboard, and pick everything out himself! HE IS SO EXCITED! I am a little nervous about letting him ride it to school, cuz we live at the top of the hill...to school. But we'll see... Plus, I think it's too big to fit in his locker. They are TINY!!
He's so funny. He told us today he wants to be a professional skate boarder. Heaven help me!
Last night, he and I passed out programs at the amphitheater. He has done it with me before. But this was the first time I didn't have to direct him in anyway. He's just getting old. It's weird.
Today, he received the priesthood. You can read more about that in these articles, I linked to before. becoming a deacon, passing the Sacrament And here's another great article about his new responsibilities at church. He was so excited. It was nice to see. One of our friends, said his son, was not even wanting to do it. So I'm glad Nick was happy, and looking forward to it!
Emma took this picture this morning. Of course...as my life goes, I didn't get one of everyone looking nice. He's not smiling, but you can see how old he looks!!
So Nick has the day off tomorrow, while the rest of the district starts school! Hopefully we can do something fun...ish...Of course, when you're 12, your mom's idea of fun, and your idea, are slightly different!
Happy12th Birthday! I love you! I'm so proud of you. You are a great kid, and make me laugh everyday! Always remember who you are, and how much we love you!
