Hello Dear Friends, It is with great joy and sadness that I announce that my darling Samuel is going to be SIXTEEN tomorrow!
Can you believe it! I decided to dedicate this letter to a quick walk down memory lane.
Sam has always been the scientist, mr.logical, “How?” (never why, think scientist not philosopher)
He was never the dare-devil and would wait at the top of the stairs to be carried down. He was afraid to swim at first, scared of grass the first time we tried to set him down on it, and he mastered the monkey bars just a few months before ‘Riah who is almost six years younger. He was always a talker and when Sophia came along for almost two years he talked for the both of them. Sam took to another sister just fine. He and Tessa have had a far more antagonistic relationship with more squabbling but also a very intense love and Sam is both protective and bossy towards her.
(Brothers in matching Christmas Pj’s)
Sam at our dear friend’s wedding and he’s in a suit!
