Brian had some pretty cool and daring tricks that he would do on the swings. He was about 12 here. Isn't he cute?? :-)
Hiking down to the river in the spring...it's always fun to watch the ice breaking up. Spring 2004.
We cut our own Christmas trees for a few years at the farm. The boys are holding a saw that belonged to my great grandpa. It cut through the trees like butter. Christmas 2004.
In his snow fort - winter 2005.
Driving the 4-wheeler at the farm. Summer 2006.
At the air show in Oshkosh...he and Grandpa Bill went and camped out. Special trip for both of them! Summer 2007.
Brian playing guitar....he started out on Bass guitar, switched to electric and finally switched to acoustic...it's so fun to hear him play. November 2007.
Goofing around with his grandpa Pete and his dad, doing Chuck Norris impersonations and drinking wild hooch....um....root beer. Early 2008.
More guitar, Brian played "Amazing Grace" as his grandpa's funeral...it was so touching. His mama was very proud.
Soccer...Summer 2009. Brian had played when he was little, and then decided that he really wasn't that into it. When he got into High School the recreational soccer teams became co-ed....he decided that maybe he was interested in it after all. Something about it being more fun having girls around. Sigh.
Last Spring Brian decided to join the Civil Air Patrol...or CAP. He has enjoyed having other people to talk to about planes. I think he looks too grown up in his uniform. Sigh.
Driving himself to soccer. How did that happen?
Our cute little boy has grown into a handsome young man. He's smart, he's funny, he's polite and he's compassionate...just to name a few.
