Riley age 10
This week I am am SO thankful for our oldest grandson Riley! He is an incredible boy that we are all so very proud of. I've often said that I have an amazing family that was created in a amazing way. It's unique and wonderful. When I was a little girl dreaming of how my life would be when I grew up, I never dreamed of how it has. And all of my children and grandchildren have brought me an amazing wonderful life. Riley didn't join our family until he was 6 years old Riley in the 1st grade when he came to us.

but it seems like he's always been here:) He is 10 years old now and growing in to a handsome young man. Riley has the most beautiful blue eyes you could ever ask for! In fact I think they look like perfect marbles. Riley is very smart and makes excellent grades in school, he loves all his friends and his friends love him. I don't think Riley has a mean bone in his body. Riley played baseball one summer and did very well, but scheduling just didn't allow for him to keep doing that. This last year he played on the Church league basketball team and he's gone to basketball camp every summer. He also swims like a fish and loves to shoot the bow and arrow with his Papa and he also loves to drive Papa's tractor. But he also loves to read ALL the time. I think he plans on reading every book that has been written. I'm reasonably certain Riley is partly monkey and perhap's a little yo yo thrown in :) Riley, love's to be dressed up like a really cool dude~ although his Mother has to guide him in this direction :) He has a wonderful sense of humor, but can be very serious and sensitive. I'm so very proud of everything Riley does and we are looking forward to watching him grow up to be a successful young man.
Most of all Riley is the best big brother any one could every hope for. Riley came to us thru a horrible tragedy, but out of that horror this remarkable, deeply loved little boy has emerged.. We LOVE YOU RI RI!One of my favorite pictures. Angela with Riley and Wayne with Jimmy
