Joseph turned 17 on June 1st

Joseph is 17. I can hardly believe it. He had a nice birthday with friends over to visit and a movie, Alice in Wonderland newly out on DVD that day. He only wanted chocolate ice cream for dessert. Daniel and the older kids took him to Panera for his birthday and then came home for ice cream and a movie. He has really grown up so much in this last year in many ways. He is still doing a lot of jumping and dangerous stuff as usual but he hasn't been injured in a while so that is good news. He has been working really hard to make his money for camp this year. I really appreciate his work ethic too! He never shies away from work. He recently led singing for our youth led service at church and is always willing to lead in prayer. I appreciate his willing spirit and exuberant attitude. He is a lot of fun to be around. (most of the time:) This is going to be an amazing year for him.

He has truly grown up! I hope he got my belated "envelope".
I pray that he will have a blessed 17th year!
