Happy Birthday Zachary

Today 17 years ago, 5:30am my son Zachary Christian was born. 7lbs 20".
 He had dark hair and blue eyes. 
 He was perfect!  

When Zachary was young he liked baseball.  At 11 months he began walking around with a toy bat and ball constantly in his hands. He began playing T-Ball at the age of 4, and played baseball until he was in 7th grade.  His favorite position was shortstop, 2nd base and pitcher.  He was a good player and I was devastated when he decided to stop playing.
In 5th grade Zachary began playing basketball.  He played well but decided to stop playing in 8th grade.  We have a basketball net in our driveway and he plays every day, even when it rains.  Only snow storms stop him from playing.


In 9th grade Zachary tried Lacrosse and Golf.   He only played one season of lacrosse but has continued golf.  Zachary is a good athlete and does well with whatever sport he plays. 

I am very proud of my son for trying different sports.
I am proud of my son for the confidence he shows in himself.
I am proud of my son!

  5. Hi, I'm back to answer your question about "cutting potatoes". We cut the "eyes" or sprouts off of potatoes, then plant them. As time passes, potato bushes sprout from them. Once the bushes are mature, we pull up the bushes and dig up the potatoes which have grown on the roots of the bushes. It's almost like looking for Easter eggs :)

  10. Aww, how sweet! And a very happy birthday to him. It's amazing to go back and look at children and what they were like "way back then" and how much they've grown and change. So is there a story behind the two different cakes?
