It’s always a blessing to watch our children grow up. Man, this makes me feel old! I met Dakota and his family shortly after I moved to Texas in 2005. Our boys played soccer together and became fast friends. I adored his parents and his mom and I have remained close friends over the years.
As most teenage boys would shy away from public affection and showing any emotion… Dakota is not your typical boy. He jumped out of his truck when he arrived and gave me a great big hug. I am proud of the things he has overcome. And while he is still a boy (notice the wrinkled shirt above) he is a really great guy. He will accomplish absolutely wonderful things in life and I am so happy I have been able to watch him over the years.
Best of luck sweet boy! In all that you do.
One side note… Dakota LOVES the color orange. So when looking for what he would wear to his Senior Prom.. he came across the Tuxedo’s from Dumb and Dumber. He and his friend ROCKED it out.
All my love!
