Happy Birthday, Payton!

My son is Great! He is thoughtful and considerate. He compliments me on clothes, food, room arrangements and even on the curriculum I choose to teach. I don't know a lot of children like him. He loves to read, climb trees, read while climbing trees, sword fight, play soccer, build with Legos and throw a football.

He loves the Lord. He is intense sometimes, and silly others. He's a great brother, not without faults, but striving to have as few as possible. He tells great stories, gives great hugs and always says "I love you."

Because of him, I became a mom! He is a JOY! It's been a GREAT 11 years!
