There are milestones in our lives almost every day. How could there not be? We don't always celebrate them...sometimes we don't even always recognize them. This one was a little difficult NOT to recognize though. Sixteen years ago, life was a little different. Calmer, quieter...boringer...I know, that's not a word. I honestly don't feel like it was really that long ago and yet I can't really believe it was so long ago!!
Happy 16th birthday Jakob!
We are so proud of the amazing young man you have become today.
Despite the fact that brunch was merely 7 blocks away, you drove "your" truck (the one that is a year older than you that was your grandpa's, then your dad's and now for you to drive) with eager and excited siblings strapped in beside you, ready to ride with their big brother. Pretty exciting stuff! Each one of them helped clean and polish that truck the day before so that it would be ready for your special day. I don't know why I didn't take a picture!! They're all so proud of you!
Happy birthday Jakob. We love you.
