Langston continues to be loving, happy, funny, joyous, and well-adjusted. He is a very good student, though he doesn’t care much for math. He loves to read books and play with Legos. He has a wonderful imagination, loves to sing and dance, and loves to watch movies.
He is going to be tall, we think. He is already just shy of 5 feet tall – taller than most of his classmates – and he currently wears the youth size equivalent of my shoes (which he often pulls on to take out the trash – his chore), and my feet are not small – women’s size 9!
This past summer – though only 9 years old – he auditioned for – and won – the part of Young Simba, the lead in the musical, The Lion King! He worked incredibly hard, and was rightly very proud of his performance and hard work.
This fall, he was nominated for a regional theater award for his excellent work – the only 9 year old on the list!
He is a much beloved classmate, friend, and son. I thank God every day for the privilege of parenting this human.
Have a very beautiful Christmas.
