From 3 to 16 just like that

I wonder when it happened.  It seems like just yesterday he was a baby.  Then he grew and grew.  He was a quiet child I didn’t think he would ever talk.   He would sit for hours and open and shut the screen door in the retail part of the greenhouse… it was something he could do all by himself…no assistance needed…we kept saying “Noah watch out for your fingers.”  Then when he was about two he noticed his Grandfather and his Daddy on the roof..and guess what?  There was a ladder…his Mom ran pretty fast that day.

One weekend his parents left him with us and went someplace…not sure where.  His Mom missed him so much she began to cry and they showed up in the middle of the night.

It seemed like all he would eat was mac and cheese and hotdogs…and Mandarin Oranges.Noah 2002 he was three

Here he is riding the motorcycle kid ride at the fair.  This was 2002 he was three.

He grew and grew..at their last house we kept track and I would make growth marks on the pantry door.  Now I would need a ladder to make a mark.

I have to remind his parents to measure him now. Six feet what?

The whole cake slid forward

A moment before I took this photo his Mother told him to tilt the cake a little and it nearly slid off the tray!

Noah

He has plans for the summer.  He had a goal and he has achieved it.  He has an interest in Medicine possibly to become a Doctor.  So what would a 15 year old do in preparation for his 16th birthday?  Can you guess?

The cake

We sang Happy Birthday!

The candles are out!

I hope all his wishes come true!

Well what did you guess?

If you guessed that he would take the Certified Nursing Assistant Class, pass the exam and gain employment for the summer in a Nursing Facility you would be correct.  He is excited to begin this new adventure!

We are very proud of him!

  2. It sounds like he's a remarkable boy with a remarkable future ahead.
    And I can think of few better preparations for becoming a doctor than being a nurse first.
    Happy Birthday, Noah!

    1. I know the feeling of kids growing up rapidly. I think I committed the same sin and then had the nerve to leave home. Happy birthday Noah and I hope you like your summer job.

  23. Noah has grown up quickly as I compare to the years passed. It is so great he can work in that field and find out where he was to go with it in his life. One of my former guy students went to college and ended up a nurse at a children's hospital. I was so proud of him to go into that profession. If Noah does move on to become a doctor that would be so great.
