As I was making my way through the photos from my son's birthday party from last month(yes, I'm horribly behind) this photo stood out as the epitome of who my son is at this stage in his life. While he's social when he wants to be, he often retreats to do his own thing. Go his own way. Make his own path. He has a very strong, determined, and stubborn personality(no idea where he gets that from;) and I absolutely love him for it! Despite how difficult he can be at times, I'm thankful that he stays the coarse and I pray that this quality leads him to make a positive impact on the people that he encounters throughout his lifetime.
