Dear Noah...your 20th birthday party at CiCi's Pizza.........

You ended up basically eating an entire pizza all by yourself. You got some money and gift cards, a cool Doctor Who T-shirt, a cool mini train ornament for your mini Christmas tree......and more. We all had a great time......and I still can't believe you are now 20 years old! I love you my little man!

Dear will be 20 years old next Saturday.......

and I have to wonder where those 20 years went! It seems like only yesterday (okay maybe last week or last month or year) that you were still about 5 years old, and now you are in college and growing up before my eyes. Bittersweet because I am thankful you have progressed along so well and come so far, but also a little sad to see those days have passed, forever. If you are successful making it on your own in the world, I will have done my job. There are times I wish you were still tiny and I was still  homeschooling you, but I love you now as a young man who has a lot of goals in his life. I hope and pray you will be able to accomplish all you set your mind to.

Christmas is only a few days away now, then your birthday, and we will be into yet another new year. I love you more than you will ever possibly know, even though I am sure I totally get on your nerves a lot now lol.

Love you to the moon and back, again and again, forever, and ever, and ever.......

Dear Noah..........

I came across this photograph of you I had taken when we were looking at model homes in Indiana. This was after we had moved back to Ohio and were looking for something to buy or rent. We always enjoyed looking at model homes in Colorado just for fun and on this particular day we went to Muncie, Indiana to go through all the model homes in this one particular area....I forget how many but it was either 8 or do remember an 8 being in the number. I know it was a lot and I believe it was TK Constructors but I am not 100% certain on that. Here you are testing out the jet tub...and look at your face. You were in heaven!

It is hard to believe that this little guy in this tub will turn 20 this December. WHERE has all the time gone? It truly seems like only a few years ago you were this little. 

I love you Noah to the moon and back again, forever I will.

Dear Noah.........

I don't post much these days in here...after all you will soon enough be 20 years old, leaving me asking myself, "When did that happen?"  It seems like only yesterday we were still homeschooling and living in Colorado. It seems in my mind you are still little even though I can see a much older young man in the room beside mine. Time is so odd in that really does end up becoming truly only how we "perceive" things to be I guess.

You are doing well in college......still cannot believe you are in college! I guess the fact that I make such a low income right now is good for you because you qualify then for grants to be able to go to college, which is a good thing,  but I always wish I could do more......and I want to do more.

So many little details I still need to take care of here and always things to do. I still  love you like I always have and always will...but it is getting harder and harder for me to see those little Christopher Robbins' legs, socks, and shoes on you and hear that little snippet of Winnie the Pooh song I hear in my mind when I used to watch you walk down the hallway.

I love you!

Dear are officially a permanent licensed driver now!

Driving for an extra period of 2 years and earning straight A's in college and being on the Dean's list has helped tremendously to lower your insurance costs for being added to my that is a good thing! I knew you had passed when you came "running" back across the parking lot with a big smile on your face! I am very proud of you and so happy you finally accomplished this! We went out to celebrate at Domino's Pizza since you had not eaten there since December 2017! THEN we stopped and picked up a cell phone for you as  you now will need one if you are out driving by yourself here and there and for down the road on your own or working..etc.

I was just looking at this photo of you the other day and wondering where all that time has gone. I know that little boy is still somewhere deep down inside of you....but wow...time is flying by and you are making huge strides to get out on your own one day.

I love you Noah and am SUPER happy for you and proud of you for all you have worked for an accomplished in your life so far!
