Jack, you get to go first.
My thoughtful, faithful, and loving son...
When you grow up, you want to be- a meteorologist or a marine biologist because you are so interested in the weather and ocean life
What I think you will be when you grow up- a missionary or a teacher because you love to serve and direct others.
How will I recognize you in heaven? You will be standing at the front gates offering to help show people around.
Your heart to serve others, your desire to do the right thing, and your love for your family
Your weaknesses- You have a hard time seeing the big picture sometimes
Highlights and memorable moments of your year- Seeing the shuttle launch with your dad, family camp, diving with sharks in Mexico, back surgery, and entering the contest at the Weather Channel.
What I see God teaching you? I believe that God is developing in you a heart that loves to serve others. I also see him teaching you patience with your siblings.
Your interests and hobbies- Other than the weather and marine life, you have developed an interest in music this year. You are doing very well in piano, have picked up the guitar, and drum to every song you hear. I hope your love for this continues because you have real talent in this area.
Jack I love you so much and am very proud of the kind of young man you are turning out to be.
