Drew Turns Ten

Drew is a pretty easy-going kid. We had to celebrate his birthday a couple days early due to some big celebrations with his Grandpa Mike’s 70th birthday planned. But Drew didn’t mind at all. He’s all chill.

We lucked into some Jazz tickets, so Drew and I went up to downtown Salt Lake City to the game as a birthday activity. The Jazz didn’t play well and ended up losing but it was fun time together.

We took Drew out of school on Friday to take him to lunch wherever he wanted. He chose Chick-Fil-A, but he couldn’t stay long because he needed to get back to class to get his math homework — he’s a great student too!

While we were at lunch, I took the opportunity to interview Drew to find out what his life is like as a ten-year-old. Here is what I learned:

What are your favorite things?

  • Subject at school: Computers. Definitely.

We stayed home that night and played games as a family, which was what Drew wanted to do in lieu of a friend party. We had some Dairy Queen ice cream cake and he opened a couple presents — a couple soccer posters, scout stuff, a soccer ball, and some wireless headphones. Happy birthday Drew!
