Jordan is one of those kids who has always been very even tempered and rarely ever upset for very long.

These days I rarely have to ask him for help – he just steps in and helps me around the house – especially in the kitchen.

I love when he does some of the exercises I like to do even if he can do them better than me!!

Since starting high school Jordan has developed a huge love of band!!!  He loves to practice his trumpet and I enjoy hearing him play.

He tried cross country in middle school and enjoyed the running but not really the competing.  Now he just runs because he loves it.

He taught Hunter many things including the “correct” way to use sidewalk chalk.

Now he is 16 – now he has more freedom – now I let him go just a little more.

My wish for him is that he will always be this free and willing to dive in to new things!!!
