BURKE IS 15
Burke is a Sophomore this year. Ah, life with a teenager - he's a genius, ya know. He knows everything (while the rest of us know nothing), he's a delicate flower, so he should be exempt from all tasks that require hard work, and let's face it, he's mastered all self-control so he really doesn't need any direction or instruction. Right?
In all seriousness, though, he's a great kid. He's pretty chill most of the time, and he's a fun goofball to have around. We are constantly amazed at his natural talent to plink out a tune on his guitar or piano - all by ear. Burke's a great big brother, and despite the typical teenager traits that surface periodically, he and Sally have a great relationship. He's always up for a hugs and cuddles, and he's not the stereotypical sour, sullen teen. He's a confident, eccentric spirit and is not afraid to show it. We love that!
What are you thankful for this year, Burke?
