Our son Jake is 38 today. How time flies.
Here he is at two weeks. Sister Jill has taken full possession of him by now. The truth is, she very much helped raise him. It wasn't always easy.
It was often a lot of fun, though.
It still is. As Jill said of her brother on Facebook today "Jake: making life more interesting since 1975".
A true introvert, he does not like to have his photo taken, so we don't have many of him as an adult. I captured this one from his Facebook profile.
Jake has played soccer since he was eight, and still plays, as well as coaches. He'll be celebrating his birthday with his soccer friends this Saturday before, during, and after the 1:00 Sounders match. It sure would be nice if he was gifted with a win.
We'll be there too, of course, but we'll leave that partying to the younger crowd. We are taking him out to dinner this evening for own little celebration.
Happy Birthday, Jake!
