He always makes me proud....

Over the spring break my hazel eyed boy woke up one morning and decided he wanted to build his own vegie patch... He is sooooo independent that he went outside and started to clear weeds and over a couple of days he built a very cool looking little garden... We took him to Bunnings for plants and he chose what he wanted... He is only 16 years old even though he gets mistaken for a 19 year old quiet often and I hear so many mums say it is so hard to raise teenage boys....well I must be one of the lucky ones... Don't get me wrong there are times when I have to pry him away from the computer keyboard and he procrastinates a lot when he has assignments due but he is a beautiful, loving, bright young man... This week he has decided he would like to be captain or a prefect in his senior year of school so even though he was beyond nervous he went off and did the speeches in front of 250 of his peers and then again in front of the full teaching staff.  No matter what happens with the vote I am proud of the fact he wants to stand up and be part of his last year at school... He is so easy to love and cherish...I am a blessed mum.
