In all of Caleb's awesome 14 years of life, he has only been home to celebrate his birthday one year. The one year was when we were evacuated from the cabin because of a wildfire. We hate fire season. Other than that year, every year he has been at Scofield, dipping his toes, or all of him in the lake. Watching fireworks from the island. Playing in the water and having as much fun as possible. That is how you do a birthday!
Before ending the night we shot off Alka-seltzer rockets!
I love my first born! He is such an awesome kid! He has his quirks, as we all do. He can become majorly distracted which can be to his downfall. He can have attitude sometimes. He can put things off. However, he is also so awesome! He is faithful to Father in Heaven and worthy to hold the priesthood and call the Holy Ghost his companion. He is a terrific friend and tries to be kind to everyone. He is such a wonderful brother! He loves each of his siblings so much and just has fun with them. He may be 14, but he is still such a kid at heart who enjoys the simple side of life and has not lost his imagination for play or creating things. He is intelligent! He can be a great helper and worker. He still loves to read and play soccer, they are just part of him. He also continues to be a wonderful peacemaker in our home. He has also started to learn how to change his temper or attitude and make it better, he is becoming a better person each day. We love him and are so glad that he is ours, forever!
