Here’s to the kid who lives in Illinois and knows that when it gets above 40 degrees, we shed our winter coat and put on a tech vest, because we smell that spring is near. We hear the birds singing and the earth waking up a little.
Here’s to the kid who patiently waits while his daddy checks on the honey bees.
Here’s to the kid who got his momma’s face and thinks it’s cool to act like her.
Here’s to the kid who watches way too many hours of Curious George and yet genuinely wants to be outside.
Here’s to the kid who is patient, kind, and forgiving as his mom and dad figure out this parenting thing, this farm thing, and this life thing.
