Happy Birthday, Son

20150514_Family_Smelting_013_smallGoodness, my son is 16 today. Sixteen! I really and truly don’t know where the time went. Seems like only a couple of years ago he was born. His birth was the paradigm shift for our family – the day we started to question how we lived and how we wanted to live.   I became a stay at home Mama. We started to homeschool. We began questioning conventional medical wisdom and took control of more of our lives.

He has grown into such an amazing man-cub, this boy of ours. His inquisitive and creative mind keeps us on our toes, and his easy going nature brings joy to every day.

I don’t write about each child on each birthday (that would be quite a few birthday posts, yes?), but today, well, sixteen!
