A Decade of JT

JT turns 10 this coming weekend. 

We've always called JT our light bringer because he is full of light, and joy and magic and smiles. He is a fun kid. A sweet kid. An amazing kid.

He's part Huck Finn, part Mowgli, part Matthew McConaughey, part Peter Pan/Lost Boy. Given a choice of inside or outside, it's always outside. He's got a special love for animals. He craves adventure. If he never had to wear a shirt again, he'd be the happiest kid around. 

He's also the kind of kid that is kind to everyone. And isn't afraid to talk to anyone. 

He's the kid who charms the people at the store, the teachers, the coaches, the senior citizens in church. JT loves people and they love him back.

He's the kid who has Celiac disease but doesn't let it bother him. He's never once complained, even when he's had a gluten attack. He's the kid who has ADHD and school sometimes isn't his thing, but he works through it and finds ways to make things better. 

He's the kid that seems sort of magical. He makes you want to believe in magic too. 

JT makes life brighter. He is our light bringer.

It's a tradition around this house that when a kid turns 10, they get a video recap of the their first decade. So here's JT's....
