If you line a bunch of Kindergartener’s up and ask them what they want to be when they grow up…chances are you will get a few doctors, police officers, and vets. If you add Nolin into the mix, then you will get “Mr. John The Adventure Man“!
And with that it is very easy to see that having the opportunity to walk beside Nolin as he grows up will truly be the adventure of a lifetime. Today marks a new chapter in that adventure as our little adventure man turns 6 years old!
It is hard to imagine that six years ago today Jenn & I sat patiently in the hospital waiting room eagerly waiting to welcome Nolin to the world. I don’t think we ever could have imagined how much our lives would change.
Nolin, thank you for letting us be part of your adventure as you grow into an amazing young man (I’m sorry…an amazing young adventure man). I can’t wait to see the man you become, but for now, I’ll just hope that you stop growing up so fast and give me a little more time with 6 than you did with 5.
May today (and everyday) be filled with love, excitement and laughter. Happy Birthday Buddy…we love you!!!
Grace, Mommy & Daddy
If we’ve only got this life in this adventure oh then I want to share it with you
