It"s a Crazy Wonderful Life

This is a blog about my family and the crazy life in the Sims Household. We have 5 children, ranging from 14 to 5, and seem to be going in all different directions sometimes. The purpose of this blog is to help keep our friends and family up to date on what is going on in our lives.

My oldest boy is turning 11

It's so hard to believe that Ryan is 11 years old today.  Where has the time gone?  It seems like just yesterday that they laid this little boy on my chest.  Here is what he looked like just minutes after being born.
Here is another when he was just a few days old.
He has grown and changed so much and I am very proud of the young man he is becoming.

The last few months he has been working very hard to finish his Webelos.  He decided to not just finish with the minimum required to get his webelos rank, but to complete ALL 20 of the webelos badges.  I am so happy to say that he accomplished his goal.  Many thanks to his scout leaders that helped him along the way, but he has worked very hard.  This Thursday at the Blue and Gold Banquet he will not only advance his rank, but he will earn all the compass points, his square knot (religious award), and his Arrow of Light.  I am so proud of him.  I will post some pics from that event later this week.

Well, here is a couple of pictures of my boy today on his birthday!  I am so proud to call him my son!  Happy Birthday Ryan!

To see how RYan has changed through the years, go to my facebook profile here for a whole bunch of pictures of him from birth to present.
