It feels pretty good.
I guess I'd like to play varsity basketball next year even though I'll be a sophomore. I think that would be really fun.
I probably would like to be a meteorologist like one of the weather people who chase storms and watch hurricanes come in.
I like hanging out with my friends and I like gym class. Gym is really fun this year because we're doing p90x and yoga things which are really challenging. Really, yoga? Yeah, yoga's really hard to do which I never thought it could be.
My favorite sport is basketball and if I could be a professional basketball center, I think it would be awesome and a lot of fun.
Are there any special gifts you're hoping for? No, not really. I guess I'd like to have a rowing machine like I see other guys on when I go to Saturday basketball practice. The machines have weights that you pull against with your arms and push against with your feet and they tell how far you gone - kind of like a treadmill but you're rowing.
What your favorite aspect of Christmas week? (This is the week when our entire family gets together between Christmas and New Year's in a rented house or two near the Lake Michigan beach.) Hanging out with my cousins all the time because it's really fun. And also, the New Year's Eve party where we always have that really good food. That's really awesome.
It's pretty fun because the rest of my siblings look up to me and I can usually tell them what to do and they'll do it for me. And I especially feel a sense of responsibility when it's just Zachary and me at home.
History. Right now we're learning about Greeks and Romans and I think that's a really cool time in history. I saw the movie 300 and it's a really awesome movie about that time in history.
Is there anything else you can tell us about yourself that I didn't cover? Not really. I do plan to start weight lifting in the Spring and Summer, not only to get in better shape, but to help me be a better basketball player. And I'm still deciding whether or not to play football in the Fall because varsity basketball has stuff in the Fall also.
And, of course, I have to add that he's fun and loving to all his cousins - not just the other big guys. Here is is participating in a dance, gangnam style, with Grant and some of his younger cousins at the beach house on New Year's Eve.
In conclusion, we're wishing David a Happy 15th Birthday and a wonderful year ahead. We love you David and we couldn't be more proud of you.
