This birthday seems particularly poignant given that you are now 10! You have grown up so much this year, its been amazing to watch. Your stint at camp, while hard, I know has helped you be proud of yourself. You learned a lot and so did I.
Its been wonderful watching you grow up. You are funny, super smart, handsome, and talented at many things. I think one of your most endearing qualities is how empathetic you are. I loved your story about helping the kid at camp who was feeling homesick. That was such a sweet thing for you to do. But I shouldn't be surprised. That is who you are. I look forward to seeing you shine this year, at a new school, with new friends, new challenges. You are a wonderful son. I couldn't be luckier.
