I know that he is not MY son but anymore it feels like it. He is such an awesome kid. We went for a 3 mile walk yesterday and talked the whole time. I actually got to really know how he has been feeling and what all he is thinking. Life is hard as a 16 year old and especially what all he has been through. He is adjusting to life at Jasper High School. Doing well in all his classes but Algebra but we are working on it.
I am so proud of him for being strong willed. He uprooted everything he knows and came to live with us at 16, that takes alot of guts. He rarely ever talked and his Dad and I have explained to him that he needs to open up, sometimes he opens up to much haha. He is just becoming an awesome young man. He is going to start helping me with my photography business and his dad and Chris's lawncare business plus do some odds and ends. We are going to work on budgeting money and keeping a checkbook. We are working on responsibilites and finishing things that you start and giving your all.
I came home from work sunday evening and he had done his chores, all the laundry, and cleaned our bathroom (that is a job!!!)
God has blessed me in so many ways and I am grateful. Just enjoying every minute of life :)
Goodbye Summer Break!
