When I Grow Up

On the way home from physical therapy, Kerwin began to tell me all the things that he was going to do when he grew up. He has recently been interested in how old Daddy is and talking about being 29. His ideas were so cute. I told him when we got home we should write his ideas down in a story. So this is what we came up with. I wrote the text below the pictures in case you can't read them.

When I am 29, the same age as Daddy, I will coach basketball. Mommy and Daddy will sit up in the stands and watch me coach and they will cheer. My job will be a teacher.

I will drive a red truck and my dog will sit in the back with the tailgate up. The red truck will be big. Also I will be a farmer. The farm will be close by. It will have horses, cows and cute baby horses, girls and boys. The cows wil be named JK and IK.

When I grow up, I will have a big bed to sleep in, a TV, a chair, a couch, and big shoes. I will visit Uncle Tyler and Aunt Rachel.

Absolutely adorable! I wish he could come visit us now! That was cute. I miss that kid so much. We need to do the web cam soon.

I am still so amazed by his language skills! I am also really excited about Rachel's comment about the Tom and Jerry movie : )

That is so sweet. I love how specific he is with his goals.

What a great book!! Kervin is interested in a service occupation. Apparently teachers DO change lives. My former students tell me that all the time on my FB page! I was so glad to eat lunch with you all last week. It was a wonderful chance to see all the progress Kerwin has made. He would never have had the opportunities in Hatti. You all are my heros!
Love you,
