Adam and Caleb are my two oldest sons. They are just shy of being sixteen months apart. They are very close as a result and yet, they are worlds apart.
Adam is one amazing son. He is musically talented, the number one ranking student in his school, and is exploring his cooking abilities. He is a Guitar Hero master----- scratch that, he is a video game master...... he always has been. He now towers over me....... yet I have nothing to fear because he is very honoring and respectful. I appreciate his willingness to help out around the house, and I am proud of the wonderful path that he is taking. I love to see what an awesome big brother he is, and I have no doubt that he will make a fantastic father one day. With all that said, he is a homebody---- which I don't mind. He is happy being at home. And that's a good thing because home is where the heart is.
Caleb is pretty darn terrific. He is a natural athlete------ at anything he tries. He especially loves skateboarding, basketball, and baseball, but he is willing to try anything once. He is very outgoing and quite a charmer. It is hard to stay mad at Caleb because he knows how to lay it on thick when he knows he is wrong. He enjoys expressing himself through the clothes that he wears--- and unlike any of siblings, he doesn't care what anyone thinks of him. He is always coming home with invites to girls' birthday parties--- I have yet to let him attend one. Unlike Adam, he loves to be out and about like a social butterfly...... and I have had teach him to learn when enough is enough and today is down day. As he is getting older he is showing signs that he understands this concept, and is learning to just chill. I was very proud of him when I picked him and Adam up from camp this afternoon. Without prompting he handed me back more than half of the spending money I had given him for camp telling me that he hadn't spent it all. Because of his honesty and this extra money, I promised that one day this week we would have TacoBell for dinner. This wasn't expected, but he was most certainly thankful.
