the bear who is no longer little

Known to his mama as "Little Bear" with those curly locks of hair in the back that his mama had a hard time cutting off and as our only thumb sucker, this laid back kind of kid has officially taken the Little out of his name as our youngest son celebrates his 18th birthday today. 

As a mom it's always a fascinating process of watching your children grow up and develop into young adults.  As I think about this particular son, here's some of what defines him: 

A young man guitar strumming...graphic and dog calling...motorcycle riding...eating huge bowls of ice cream...regularly hanging with a best friend from toddlerhood...loving his siblings...rarely complaining...garbage taking player...patient as a saint...all around COOL!

He's finishing up his homeschool career right now, working hard all summer as he tackles two jobs, then heading off to his next step of schooling this fall.

Sure has been a blessing to be his mom :-)  Happy birthday, Bear!

What a sweet tribute to mamahood and to your little man son. May he continue to rise to what God is calling him to and may your joy be complete.
