Today is Scotty's 8th birthday!!! Crazy!!!! Scotty is very excited to turn 8. He is going to be baptized in a few weeks and he can't wait. He will be starting Scouts next week and is ecstatic to be a Scout. This past year has been fun for Scotty. He finished 1st grade and loved his 1st grade teacher. He is doing really well in 2nd grade. He is almost finished with 3rd grade math, but he loves history and science the most. He has learned to love reading- if he has a good book, that is! He lost his front teeth, which brings his total only to 4 that he has lost. He finished his first year of soccer and played again in the fall. He loved being able to learn and play the different positions. He started karate and LOVES it! He has been skiing a few times this winter and really enjoys that. He still loves to build things with Trio building blocks, Legos and anything else that he can find. Scotty is an awesome big brother and Grant and Collin love him and look up to him. He loves riding his bike, hiking, swimming, Star Wars, learning about the Titanic, playing video games, his stuffed gorilla and rock climbing. Scotty is a very kind boy and gets along well with others. This past year we have seen him really develop the ability to have empathy and to think of other's feelings. He loves to help us and his brothers and we are so lucky to have him in our family. Happy Birthday Scotty! We love you to the moon and back!!
