Big milestone birthday now that he can drive! I took him on a little drive around the neighborhood and he picked it up pretty quickly. He’ll be just fine.

Max is a great kid with a hear of gold. He cares deeply about his friends and family. It is clear his two biggest interests in life will be guitar and mountain biking.

He is also a good worker. We try to tell our kids we’re most proud when they have a commitment to work hard, than how talented they are. There will always be someone more skilled or talented, but we hope they will always work the hardest.

We’ve also noticed Maxwell cares less about what other people think about him, but thinks more about how he treats other people. Thank you for that, Maxwell!
