What a wonderful thread! I love hearing about other families and their children! Thanks for starting this thread, outbutnotdown.
I have a 14 yr daughter (wow...lots of kids around the same age written about) that is VERY good in basketball. She jumped from C squad to Varsity in no time-which is pretty unusual for around here. She's the youngest on the team. She starts each game and plays the whole game! She's 6 feet tall already and wants to be taller yet! She has her dad's athletic ability that is for sure. She has aspirations of playing in college and wants to get a scholarship. Not only does she do extrememly well in bball...she is a terrific student. A average..takes school very seriously and loves it! She's outgoing, very well liked and for 14 is advanced beyond her years. She has never been a trouble maker and she make me and her dad very proud.
My 12 yr old son has a heart of gold. He is such a good boy. He's one of those kids that is very kind to others, taking into consideration other's feelings. Loves motocross and snowmobiles. He has such a innocent and genuiness about him. He keeps me humble. He enjoys much of what I do...and it is fun to bond w/him.
Then there is the caboose. HEHE...he's a comic. Always off the cuff..something funny to say. He' s just out there. For 5 yrs old he already has shown so much courage and strength in his life and yet giggles and smiles. He's light hearted and always smiling. He was the child that I thought I would never have (thought I would stop at two)..and I am so glad that we had him. Can't imagine life w/out this lil' guy.
