Now he's 14

Steven had his birthday on Monday.  He spent the day golfing with his dad and Uncle Craig, came home, had steak for dinner, and didn't get his presents until after football practise.  He got a NY Jets jersey, a new set of scriptures for starting seminary this year, some loan forgiveness from Ken and I, and two coupon books from Chloe:  one for slurpees and another of services he can collect from her like making his bed and putting away his laundry.
On a side note, can you see the mosquito bites on his arm?  The football field is near a little grove of trees which must be home base for all the mosquitos in Calgary. Steven has something like 160 mosquito bites right now, most of them on this arms.  I know the picture doesn't do it justice, but in real life it looks like some kind of disease.  It's puzzling because we hardly have any mosquitos in our neighbourhood.

Wow, he's 14! I've been trying to wrap my head around Landon turning 12 this week...does 14 feel like that too?

I got about 6 mosquito bites at our presidency meeting the other morning because we meet at a park. They've been driving me crazy! I can't imagine how torturous it would be to have 160!!

Ahh... we have new seminary scriptures at our home too. Happy 14th to your young man!

Glad he had a good birthday! 14 freaks me out, but lately I seem generally freaked out by any age anybody is. I just keep thinking of Steven and Brynlee as those babies they were when you visited right after she was born. Sigh!

What is up with the mosquito bites? Yikes! Avery & Emerson are allergic to the bites and they both had some really scary looking swollen arms and legs while we were in Montana.
