Jake turned 15 on Wednesday and we went out to eat at a restaurant of his choice (Rey Azteca–for a number of years running) to celebrate. He is definitely growing up. He is doing excellent in high school–straight As so far this year without any prompting or help from us; he’s doing great with his music–he played guitar in a “coffeehouse” event last month and played drums at a chorus concert last night (both at the high school) and he has a wide variety of friends that all seem to be level-headed. So far, so good. Three more years until adulthood!
