A boy is Truth with dirt on it's face,
Beauty with a cut on its finger,
Wisdom with bubble gum in its hair,
and the Hope of the future with a frog in its pocket.

(Will was fascinated with the lichens growing on the log, so we had a little discussion about them).
What a life this little boy leads.
One of climbing, jumping, exploring, running,
playing with a stick or pretending he's a Super Hero.
Will can be... gentle but also strong.
Dirty but cleans up well.
Loud and clunky.
Quiet and thoughtful.
Mischievous and funny.
He picks dandelions and often gives them away to his mommy.
And he's always a sweet and loving little guy that gives the best hugs ever!
Last week, Will and I attended his Kindergarten registration meeting
at the school he'll be attending the Fall.
He met his teacher and spent about an hour in her room, getting to know her and the other children.
I couldn't be any more proud of him because he's worked incredibly hard to get to this place.
And what a journey it's been. :)
I'm so fortunate he's my son and wouldn't trade the nearly 3 years with him for anything.
