Fascinating Friday

Today marks the beginning of a whole new adventure.  My baby boy turns 21 today.  As an over protective, helicopter parent, I'm not sure how I feel about this.  I suddenly feel older than dirt.  Knowing how I spent my own 21st birthday and knowing the stupid things a 21 year old boy can do, I'm slightly terrified.  On the other hand, we've raised Zack well and are extremely proud of the man he's become.

He learned to drive and is responsible behind the wheel.

Zack captains of his own ship and doesn't crumble under the weight of peer pressure.

A perfect score

He taught himself how to bowl.

He's learned to win graciously,

and how to handle disappointment just as well.

He knows how to love.

And Zack even does his own taxes.

We've raised a fairly responsible adult and I shouldn't worry.  I should celebrate the day.

Happy 21st birthday, Zack.  May you live long, prosper early, laugh heartily and love deeply.
