Ryan never ceases to amaze me. He is currently in football season. Right now he is playing quarterback on offense and safety on defense.
On Saturday he played a game. He set his alarm for 6:45am to get up, eat, and shower before pictures and the game. We stayed in bed as we knew he was fine.
I rested in the afternoon as I was feeling crummy. I went outside to see him playing baseball with a group of boys. He asked for a glass of water, because his throat hurt.
At 5:45 that night, we had him come in for supper. I asked how his throat was (he hadn't come in at all) and said, "Horrible. My body hurts and head too." I proceeded to feel his forehead. Sure enough, he had a fever.
This is typical Ryan. He does his own thing. You never know what he'll do next. He drives me crazy, but in so many ways I so appreciate his self sufficiency. It's not like the other three kids are like that!
