So, Connor turned thirteen last week and we decided to do something different. We decided that we would officially celebrate him becoming a man. Not because of something physical, emotional, or spiritual, but because as parents we believed that it is our job to usher him in to this next season. Will he still make boyish choices? Absolutely. Is he still growing? Absolutely. Will he still depend on us? I hope so. So, what makes someone a man? The choice to start acting like one.
