Jake has been gone on his mission trip for a week. It is so quiet around here. Jake is my energizer bunny, he keeps going and going and going. He loves to debate (argue) , and he can wear me down but it is funny how the things that seem to drive me the craziest with my kids is what I miss the most when they are gone. Jake has a way adding much needed life to our house. He is a senior in high school this year, I don't even want to think about how much I am going to miss him when he goes to college! Okay, we do have one year left!
Near the end of this school year Jake had to present his portfolio. It is supposed to be a year long project, of course in Jake style he spent the 2 days prior to this presentation doing his year long portfolio. Much to my amazement he had it done on time. He had to present this in front of his school adviser and us.
Of course it wasn't long before the old Jake was back arguing with his mom again! It was nice to see this side of Jake, we don't get to see it very often. It is a relief to this mom to known that he does have it in him, that he can be respectful when he wants to be.
