He's Sweet Sixteen!

{Fiskars Friday RAK}

My son, the last of my wonderful babies, turned 16 today. Poor thing was running around trying to get ready for school. It's inspection day for ROTC, he was printing out his order for his Senior ring, he was grabbing his school stuff and he has a job interview after drill. In the middle of everything I was trying to snap photos. Of course they did not turn out great, but this afternoon he said he would pose for photos in his 16 year old! LOL OMGoodness, when did he grow up!

My Baby full of fun

Never ending imagination

Is going to be the strongest person in the world

Turned 16 today and he is full of adventure, caring, compassion, love...His love for his country is overwhelming as the day he began ROTC he overwhelmingly became involved in every aspect. My baby has become a man (without drivers licence LOL). He will get his first job today. I love him so very much. BTW: don't get upset he doesn't have his tie on yet! I was snapping photos right and left and I liked this one!)
