Jacob! This sweet Gardner boy is now eleven. I cannot believe it. I remember when Gabe was eleven he started claiming 'preteen' status (I had to explain to Gabe that technically it wasn't until 12 years old and if he would be able to claim it so would his younger brothers, then ages 8 and 3). I wonder if Jacob will have the same inclination. He doesn't seem to be in any big hurry to be a teenager, so I think I'm safe. I look forward to another year with a boy that can be so funny, caring, and affectionate.
