I'm guessing this is much more accurate than most growth predictor which say that my 4'10" 10 year old, Patrick will be 6'6". Sorry Patrick, but with a mom who's 5'7" and a dad who's 5'11", I think NOT! Besides, I was my full height by the time I was 11 and Matt was his full height at 13. It says he will be about 6'1". I really wanted to try a prediction for little Campbell, but I got an error message saying that the child needed to be at least 7 years old.

Patrick's birthday was on a Thursday this year. So I picked up Patrick, his friend and Damon up from school and took 5 kids to the diner up the street from the school. It was nice. Then that night Patrick had a hockey practice, so I ordered pizzas for the hockey team. The parents needed to have a meeting that night anyhow so the kids (including siblings) all ate pizza in the hallway with under the supervision of the coach. They had a blast and I heard vague reports of a pepperoni fight. Patrick didn't want to share his cake with his teammates, he wisely chose to have it at home with his brothers and sister.
Last weekend we had a family party and celebrated my niece and nephew's birthdays along with Patrick's. Here he is waiting to blow out his candles.
He really is a great kid. He's a hard worker in school and sport. And he is so kind and thoughtful. I'm so proud of him. Patrick, I hope your birthday was a happy one.
