And the following pictures will show you how he's changed physically through the years.
And now I want to talk about what Zachary has been up to in the past year. The first thing I can tell you is that he's been busy because he's always busy.
He played basketball,
and baseball where his statistics in the all-star game were as follows: 2 singles and a double with 5 RBIs, and 2 innings pitched where he allowed only 2 runs. His favorite game is soccer but I see him playing baseball someday.
He also worked hard on his Pinewood Derby car for Cub Scouts
And won first place for best race car style in his pack and then he competed at the District level and got 3rd place for style.
He spent Christmas in Florida with his family.
And the week between Christmas and New Years in Gulf Shores with his large extended family
In Gulf Shores he enjoyed the water
And his first toasting in of the New Year (a little early)
I know I haven't covered everything this busy boy has done in the past year but I think I've shown that he's been busy. He is one smart, athletic, sweet, competitive, and imaginative boy and we could not be more proud of him. We're hoping the coming year is even better than his day has been (and we know it's been good) and we're wishing him the happiest birthday EVER!
My passions include my family and taking and organizing pictures of them and everything else I think is picture-worthy. I have been married for 49 years to my best friend and with six of the world's best children, 20 grandchildren, and 6 great grandchildren, I've been blessed beyond measure. I'm fairly active, recently retired, trying to learn to golf, and hope to remain active enough and busy enough to make these sunset years some of the best years of my life.
