8. He is creative. He doesn’t build as many machines as he did when he was younger, but he loves to exert creativity into cooking concoctions, circuit sets and LEGO structures.
9. He is grateful. He is the first to thank us for dinner or special outings. Every night in his prayers, he expresses gratitude for “mom and dad who work so hard for our house and our food.” He thanked me at least once per hour on his birthday date to Knott’s Berry Farm.
I can hardly believe he is beginning his last year of single digits. Happy ninth, Blake.
