This blog is part three of a series of blogs aimed at taking an in-depth look at each of our kids. We decided to put together some questions, some funny and some serious, that would give you a special insight to our children. Last weeks blog looked at Micah, if you missed that one just click here. Next up is Jaxon, also known as Jax, Jax-boy, little bubba or KJ-Kyle Junior. Jaxon is strong willed, sensitive, wild, imaginative, sweet and he’s kind of a maniac. Jaxon moves non-stop and I mean constantly, like to the point if you don’t hear him moving it’s concerning. He just finished his first year of preschool at Triad Baptist Church in Kernersville. He made so much growth this year in his behavior and in his learning. It was so sweet to see him making little friends for the first time. Of course we as parents tend to get ahead of ourselves and start planning our kids lives out. We start picturing his new friend being his best friend and that cute little girl being his girlfriend one day. Sometimes we have to remember to pump the brakes and cherish these moments. One of the best things from his first year of school is that he was able to learn a lot about God. He would catch us off guard so many times with the things he would say. One day I was picking with him and I said, “Where did you get that cute butt?!?” and as serious as he could be said, “Jesus made me.” So often he would come home and start singing “The Bible Song” or “Jesus Loves Me”. He’s always the first to raise his hand when we ask who wants to bless the food at meals and proceeds to thank God for every person in our family (all the way out to Great-Grandparents). He’s such a dynamic little boy, I can’t wait to see the man he grows up to be.
