May 28th was Colton's birthday. This year he turned 8. Wow. 8.
For years Colton has been very close to me. Just like a shadow. He's gradually growing away from me, which makes me sad. Four or five years ago I probably wouldn't have believed I would feel that way!
He's a very sweet, considerate boy. He loves to play. Way more than he loves to do school. He's great at taking care of the little kids during school time, which can be a mixed blessing. This year he learned how to multiply and divide. He's great at math, and likes science, too.
Colton is the high scorer on his soccer team. He loves to be outside and run around, but his most favorite thing is to be doing some sort of craft. We recently gave him a 6 foot countertop downstairs to use as a craft table, and he thinks it is wonderful.
We celebrated Colton and Papa Joe's birthdays on Sunday at Papa Joe's house. We also had a party at church Wednesday evening with his Sunday School friends.
We love you, Colton!
