The Boy and the Man He is Becoming

Christian's spring picture came home from school last week.  I can't tell you how tickled I was to see it:
I have very low expectations of school pictures, but these captured Christian dead on.  The photographer caught his little smirk ("I'm pretty sure I know more than you do") and the raised eyebrow that I see on his face so frequently!

In this picture I seen the young man that Christian is becoming... hard angles where pudgy curves once were and a growing up version of that sweet baby of 12 years ago.  But there are still so many signs of the boy-the bruised knees and scabby arms (from lacrosse, of course!)

How is he growing up so fast?
