My baby boy turns 17

Today is QB1's 17th birthday...  
my baby... all 6'1" or so of him...

This past year has been a good year for him, he didn't have as great of a FB season as he may have liked but unfortunately that is in large part to the crap plays his coaches called. Unfortunately they are very "old school" and don't think that they need to change anything. I just think they have never had a really good QB and simply do not know how to call plays for a passing game effectively. But I'm just his mother... what do I know? ! 

Some changes from last year- this year QB1 has a steady girlfriend (who I like very much),

He is also now sharing his room etc with Ty...
QB1 & TY circa 2006

I have to say even though he tends to procrastinate about school work more than I'd like him to, QB1 is a pretty awesome kid...he really is...
He has matured a lot this past year and even though I do not get to spend as much time as I'd like with him, I am very proud of the man he is becoming. He has stayed true to himself throughout all of the changes he has been through the past two years and has made good choices. I know his dad thinks he needs to be more focused, but I think in his own way he is... he is just  very laid back- which is hard for his dad to understand.

It's both wonderful and horrible watching your kids grow up into adulthood.
Wonderful to see the great people they have become,
and horrible knowing that the time you have with them is becoming less and less as they move on with their own lives.

Because to me he will always be this little guy-
Cheer girlie & QB1

Happy birthday J- I love you more than you know.. xoxo
