Spencer's 10

My oldest boy is 10 years old today!!  Where has the time gone.  I could not possibly be old enough to have a ten year old.  That means I am getting OLD!  I still remember the day he was born like it was yesterday.  Kissing those precious soft cheeks just seconds after he entered this world.  Leaving our Father in Heaven, knowing he is trusting me and Tyler to raise this spirit in righteousness and love.  Wow, what an honor!  We have seen it as truly that.  Spencer is a special spirit, a strong spirit, who earnestly tries to do what is right.   He chooses to honor his parents and his Heavenly Father.  I love the moments when he doesn't know I'm watching, but he chooses  the right anyway.  I will find him in the early morning or late at night reading his scriptures or on his knees saying his prayers, or helping a brother in time of need.  It just melts my heart...he is just SO good!  Of course he has his moments of arguing with his brothers, or not wanting to do what is asked of him, but at the end of the day he choose to follow his Father in Heaven.  After all he is just a child, My Child and I love him to pieces and could not be more proud!!
We took Spencer and his friend to BJ's for dinner and then we were off to the batting cage!!
The boys of course wanted in on the action
Then we came back for cake and ice cream
Happy Birthday Spencer!!
