Happy 11th Birthday Keaton.
Some fun facts:
• We originally named him Bridger and then changed it a week after we brought him home. Given his love of hunting, fishing, trapping, and survival, Bridger now seems a little more fitting. 😂
• He LOVES fly fishing and fly tying. You can find him on YouTube at Keatons Korner giving tutorials on fly tying and his hero’s aren’t who you’d commonly find among 5th graders. • He has a Kind and giving heart. When he learned that my last hitchhiker was without water, without hesitation he gave up his favorite @hydroflask so that our traveling friend could stay hydrated. • He cares deeply about the environment. With some help from us he is starting @kids_on_the_river (his idea) to get young people outdoors and teach them about river conservation and appreciation.
• He read Old Yeller and Where the Red Fern Grows and didn’t cry. (How is that even possible?) He is a voracious reader with a mind like a steel trap. He prides himself on his reading level, and rightfully so.
We love you Keaton, and can’t wait to see what this next trip around the ☀️ will hold for you. I just hope we can hold on.
