First - an apology - I seriously haven't updated this in 3 years? Sorry, Goose.

Some updates:

- you are an A student
- basketball is your absolute passion
- you played on 3 teams this year
- your ankle is injured and you need PT, so your season is over
- you're handing the above really, really well: no drama
- you're incredibly handsome, and you have girls texting you telling you so
- you draw a comic for the school newspaper
- you love your religion

You are amazing. You're becoming a teen, and you have the tone of voice to prove it. You get down on yourself when you get in trouble, which you're in right now. You love your family, and when you want to you are THE BEST big brother. I love you more than I can say.

You sprained your finger at camp. It's all s swollen and bruised in the inside of your knuckle. Blech.

It's been way too long since I've posted.

Today was the Blizzard of 2015, named Juno. You spent most of it playing on the iPad or fighting with your sister, while Daddy and I played Monopoly. I kicked his butt, by the way. Tonight Rae is sleeping over - all three of you are in your sister's room. Hopefully tomorrow you'll get to go sledding for the first time.

Love you, Goose. :)

Last Thursday you got braces.  Last night in karate, you got moved out of the little kid group and into the big kid group, because none of the little kids could beat you.

Last week you told me that someone on your team hit a "slam bam." ;)

You were in a great mood, all excited because you said that everyone at school wanted to be on your basketball team.  I said, "That's great!  But I hope you're still playing with the kids who aren't as good as you are.  You're measured in life not just by how you treat the people who have what you have, but by how you treat the people who have less than you."  You replied, "I already know that, Nana taught me that."  Nice answer, kid, nice answer. :)

This post isn't about you.  I just really want to remember the weird weather we've had this year.  This morning it was sunny and snowing at the same time.  Two weeks ago it was raining and snowing at the same time.  I saw that happen twice.  So weird.  So cool, but so weird.
