Eight words to describe our eight-year old.

I asked him, on the eve of his eighth birthday, to describe himself in three words

He said:

“Weird. Adventurous. And...hyper sometimes and not hyper sometimes.”

I would say, amongst many things that stand out, descriptors I would use include:

Tender-hearted Inquisitive Deep thinker Adventurous Hilarious Challenging Wondering wanderer Kind

I love our long-haired lad so much. So not afraid to be himself and to face every day as an opportunity to hurl himself into learning or practicing or playing or discovering something that grabs his intense focus. Amazing human.

Learned much from you, kid. Keep teaching us.
