Happy 16th Birthday, David!!

 Aug. 6 is a big day in our family. Our David is turning 16!
He has been reading up on the driver's manual and is ready to take driving lessons! I'm on pins and needles to see this life event unfolding. Mind you, he is a very cautious little man, unlike his Mama! Now that he knows a few "rules", he is quite the backseat driver! Just the other week, he warned me that I should NOT have changed lanes in the middle of the intersections. Too late... I made the attempt and luckily, we avoided some "accident" :)
I am sharing some of David's photos here....and a bit about him.
"David always has a smile on his face" said his high school teachers during the parent interview
He wore scrub suit for Halloween...posing with his Dad ( the real doc-Dr. John)
David requested an "airport cake" (don't look too closely-LOL) when he turned 5!
He was such a "cereal boy" (and still IS!)
LOVES Rubic's Cube
"Chef's night" on the Alaskan Cruise
In front of the Big Ben, London
Pretending to walk like an Egyptian (at the British Museum, London)
Happy birthday, David!
p.s. David reads my blog and I'm sure he would love to hear what you have to say about this post. He thinks his Mama can be overbearing ....very NICE.

My oldest son is reading Reader with me and he says he wishes he had cool braces like "that kid" and that his shirt is pretty cool and he's got a nice hairstyle. Serious. Words straight from my six year old's mouth! Happy Birthday David.
