Eleven is a big year for this boy here.
He got to perform at the Hope of America, which is a big program at BYU (part of the Freedom Festival) where 5th graders learn a bunch of great songs and get to go and perform them.
You can’t tell, but there’s John over there in the yellow shirt on the left side.
Also not John.
The coolest is when they do this whole flashlight song and sing about how they are the light.
John doesn’t love to have his picture taken right now, but he is indeed a light to our family. Smart and Spunky (and stubborn). We love him.
The other day there was a HUGE windstorm. I hate windstorms. The sound of the wind shaking the windows and the bushes scraping the trees scares me, and I envision our roof being ripped off as I watch garbage cans and coolers and boxes blow down the street. As I was preparing to hunker down inside, I looked out the window, and I saw John on the trampoline. What in the world?
He thought he would take advantage of the breeze and see if that affected his jumping. That boy loves to jump on the trampoline.
The pictures aren’t the greatest quality because I took them from inside the house through a dirty window (because I wasn’t going outside, are you kidding?)but you get the idea.
I actually had to call him inside when dinner was ready.
