Forget the first day of school- Jacob is turning 7 today! Usually I can't believe all the time that has gone by and how fast it's gone, but with Jacob- I don't feel old enough to have a 7 year old! I still feel, and usually act like a kid myself. Poor Jacob has endured the all the "firsts" for us. We were 2 young kids (23) when we had Jake. Brenton and I looked at each other in the hospital after we had him, and couldn't believe they were going to send us home with him, without any "formal" training. I think back and laugh at that I was clueless about (and still am at his current age). I'm so thankful for what a great boy he is! He has a heart of gold for other people. We put more pressure on him to be the "good" example to his siblings, and he usually does without a fuss. He loves animals, his friends, family, and sports. He still loves to cuddle and be close to Brenton and I. We are so blessed to have him, and look forward to all life has in store for him!

Happy Birthday bud! How exciting that your first day of First grade is on your 7th birthday! We are so proud of you for working so hard in school. We know that you will do great things with all that you are learning. We pray that you will continue to "be a blessing" throughout your days to anyone you can. We love the way you love people and love animals. Mom thinks you will do something with animals when you grow up because they make you so happy. Thank you Jake for 7 great years as our son. You've been the first to do it all with us, and you've brought a smile to our faces everyday since we've met you! We pray that you never lose that sensitive side that loves his mom and dad with all his heart, yet we love watching you be rough and tough with your friends and on the baseball field too!
We pray that today is a special day for you, not because you are starting school, but because it's the day we will always remember as receiving the greatest gift- our first born son. We love you so much! Happy 7th Birthday!
