Now Oaklen is getting close to the teen years and boy do we have the attitude around here. :) He loves his little brothers and sister and on the weekends I see him get antsy during their nap time because he wants to play. He helps out a lot around the house doing chores (although not without complaining first). He's a typical 12 year old. Hates school, loves to play and draw. He likes to write stories and can fill a whole notebook within days. He's into scary stuff so he will enjoy Halloween this year and already bought a scary mask to wear. He is very much looking forward to his party on Saturday. He keeps asking me what the plan is so I tell him. An hour later he will ask again and I will tell him the same plan. Apparently asking a million times helps with the anticipation. Haha.
Happy Birthday Oaklen! We all love you very much!
