On Friday, December 11th, at 3:30 in the afternoon, Alex turned 13 years old. We spent the day together, just Alex with Mom and Dad, and we had a great time. We left Sheboygan after stopping in Grafton for a Starbucks coffee~mocha frappucino for him and and eggnog latte for Dad. We arrived at “the Domes” in Milwaukee around 10:00. What a great time we had there!
It was beautiful (and warm)! Lovely! Afterwards, he wanted to go to Panera for lunch. Dad wanted to go to Olive Garden (really, really bad), but Alex held out…I was proud of him! As we spent the day together, I really enjoyed pondering who he is. He is generous, works great with kids and is always ready to help out when someone needs a hand (he shoveled us out of our last snow storm all by himself because Chris went immediately from one job to the next in that one day!) I am so proud of the young man that he is, and so looking forward to seeing him become the man God has intended since before time began. I love you, kiddo!
