John The Snowboy

Its hard to believe that it's been 10 years. On a hot, steamy June Monday, John burst into the world. Thunderstorms had rolled though over the night and the day was very much like today.

In ten years, John as become everything I could have ever hoped for in a son. He's great in school, has a wonderful sense of humor and deeply cares about his family and friends. John loves baseball above all things, but also is an avid reader and a wonderful writer.

It's been an eventful 10 years for him, moving from Media, PA to the Pinelands to Moorestown and finally here in Mount Laurel. He's found friends at each stop, from our first neighbor Joe Burns to the flocks of kids at Fleetwood School yelling "John!!!!!!" when I pick him up from school.

Last week his family surrounded him for a great pool party and i have not see him happier. Except maybe for when the Phils clinched the pennant.

Buddy - this is your day and I want you to know how proud I am of you and how much I love you!

Happy Birthday to John - sorry my wishes are late - they are very heartfelt though =)
Hard to believe we are (I will be soon) parents to a double-digit kid =)
