He likes to eat, a great deal.
That is to say - he eats a great amount of food and he thoroughly enjoys eating.
Gifted with intelligence, he loves the challenge of learning,
When I hold him accountable, he, like his sister, punishes me by removing himself from my company. His daddy and I laugh at how few words he uses to communicate or how little he hangs with us. And we celebrate when we are no longer 'being punished'.
However, he is in his element when he is serving. A member of student council, Wade takes his job at Union High School very seriously and becomes engrossed with each chore. One of his stuco leaders pulled me aside Tuesday just to tell me what a great kid I have and how much he, the leader, depends on Wade.
Recently, Wade was nominated by his peers as one of the top ten juniors at Union High School. This is one of the highest honors our high school offers, but when Wade got home that afternoon from school after the announcements had been made - he was more excited that his friend Peyton had been nominated.
I marvel at these creatures God has given to me to parent.
Our son is far from perfect, but he is a perfect gift and when he told me he was more excited for his friend than he was for himself, I got to tell Wade what I admire most about him - that strong, courageous desire to serve.
Your sis would be so proud of you little butt, kiddiemeal. She would tease you without mercy - but she would be so proud. So are we.
