I've always been horrible at starting letters, hence why I rarely write them. So I just will dive right in. Right now when you grow up you want to be a firefighter, and I really hope that you stick with that. Your grandpa would be very proud - he was in the forest service for quite some time and fought a lot of forest fires. One day he will tell you all of his stories, both hilarious and horrifying. In your spare time I imagine you will be working on your lifted 4x4 or out riding quads, just like your dad. (Your dad is going to make sure that your first vehicle is lifted, I don't have a say in it!) I've tried to bring you over to the horse-side but you've always preferred things that go faster and have an engine, though you will humor me a time or two. Your dad will teach you that you want "something that doesn't have a mind of it's own". Uncle Travis will, of course, second that opinion. I will just laugh and shake my head.
As for who you will be.. You will be stubborn and not easily swayed which I think is a great trait, one you have gotten from me. You will always stand up for what you believe and you won't go down without a fight. You won't let other people put opinions in your head that you don't want. Momma didn't raise a "sheep". You will definitely give us a run for our money on occasion. We won't always agree, but we will always love and put up each other. You will be tough and won't mind getting scrapes and bruises. I know that when you fall you will always pick yourself back up, both mentally and physically. I also know that you will probably pick a few fights. Your mouth is going to get you in a lot of trouble, it runs in the family. You will be smart, too smart sometimes. You pick up on things incredibly quick, and often surprise me by it. You are 110% likely to grow up to be a total smart-ass, and your daddy and I am to blame for that. Your teachers will probably love you up until middle school, then I foresee many phone calls home. You will be outgoing, the word shy isn't even in your vocabulary. You will make yourself at home no matter where you are. I know you will never have any trouble fitting in. You will be an adrenaline junkie, just like your dad, and I foresee many heart attacks in my future. You love going fast, jumping off of heights way too high, and climbing things you really shouldn't. You are definitely a risk taker.
I'm sure you will get your heart broken a time or two, but in the end you are going to find a girl will be able to keep up with you. You are going to love her with all of your heart, and treat her like a lady. Your dad and I will make sure of that. I will most likely be a sobbing mess at your wedding, I tend to be a little over emotional
We love you more than anything and only want the best for you.
