This sweet little guy, whose photo I took on Valentine’s Day in February of 2000, is now 16 years old and has been down on the couch with a virus this week.
Hopefully he’s back in action soon.
The Scout, before he was a Scout or a SnakeMaster, was a Kindergartner trying on SuperDad’s Kevlar helmet and bulletproof vest prior to deployment. Photo taken October 2005.
MM’s first birthday, celebrated with his older cousins
5th birthday with James (the red #5 engine from Thomas the Tank Engine series) — yes, the birthday boy helped to decorate his cake!
Happy 13th Earth Day birthday! Mom made the cake, MM did the decorating.
MM’s 17th birthday
High School, June 2010 …and… College, May 2014
You’ve worked hard and found happiness and success.
I am so proud of you and excited for your future.
You grew up and moved away but you will always be my firstborn son.
Happy Earth Day Birthday, MusicMan!
Not my sister nor my brother, but
still a child of my father and mother
8 month old MusicMan, who grew up to become a Cougar instead of a Husky
I married a Washington State Cougar and the two older boys have attended their father’s alma mater. H-J is breaking the mold. Tomorrow I will drive my third-born son to college. He is attending the same university that I went to thirty years ago.
For the rest of the weekend, I will be meeting up with old high school friends at the 30-year reunion. I was much younger then, too. 😉
Age three, SM wanted a dinosaur cake. His parents made one with Cheetos…
