Eldest is 9 Today!

You don't raise heroes, you raise sons. And if you treat them like sons, they'll turn out to be heroes, even if it's just in your own eyes.
 ~Walter M. Schirra, Sr.

To Eldest,

On this, your 9th birthday, I just want you to know...
That you, my son, are one of my heroes.

Thank you for making me a Mommy
on Friday, October 5, 2001 at 11:38 a.m.
I love you, my best big boy.

Then...

...and Now
Then...

...and Today.

Happy Birthday, Eldest and Happy Birth Day, Sara!

I love that quote and I love it more because it's from an astronaut's dad.
