Getting big

At Zion Canyon

At Cosco with mom

At Costco with me


Annette has been encouraging Joshua to actually be a little more defiant.  Joshua said today to her, "I'm trying to defy you, but your iron will is so strong."

First TD

Joshua made his first game time TD yesterday!  He was so pumped up afterwards.  He broke his route to find a seam in the zone coverage and caught the ball off a tipped pass in the end zone.  His coach said it was a "man" play.  :)

Happy 11th birthday Joshua

You are a huge football fan now. Partially from your playing Madden NFL on the iPad, but also cause you just love reading the history of NFL.  You asked for a 49er tailgate party, even though the Niners suck right now.  And voila:

Grateful for this guy

He will wake up in the morning and pack a lunch for both himself and Samuel.

And help his brother study for tests.

Woke up this morning with Joshua next to me with Lamby, his bedtime friend for 8 yrs.
Then when Samuel woke up, he asked Joshua to come give him a hug.
Times of sweetness still with the boys

Homework king

Was sort of amazed at how hard Joshua can work when he sets his mind to it.
I mentioned to him that he needed to finish his homework, fold the laundry and clean his room if he wanted any screen time.
He then proceeded to independently finish is Chinese homework (none of which I understand), his English project, the laundry, and cleaned his bedroom.

Pretty amazing.  I am sometimes frustrated with his lack of social awareness (I know, not his fault), or his lacking physical/dietary versatility, but hope I can just chill and appreciate the awesome person he is.
