The world keeps on turning and this kid isn't showing any signs of slowing down.
I believe that he has finally learned that whenever he puts his mind to something, he can accomplish that and even excel. Soccer league championship, 2nd place in the spelling bee, enjoying roles at the theater, excellent grades at school, and even being able to solve a Rubix Cube and try a competition sitting next to a world record holder.
Year in and year out, he has continued to impress me in what he can learn and at this point, there does not seem to be a ceiling to what he can learn. As parents, all we can do is encourage him and let him explore his abilities until he finds his own ultimate path.
As Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote about Alexander Hamilton, these same words ring true as if Ean was singing them himself. Oh wait, he does sing/rap them all the time and I mean ALL the time.
I prob’ly shouldn’t brag, but dag, I amaze and astonish
The problem is I got a lot of brains but no polish
I gotta holler just to be heard
With every word, I drop knowledge!
I’m a diamond in the rough, a shiny piece of coal
Tryin’ to reach my goal. My power of speech: unimpeachable
nineteen twelve but my mind is older
Happy birthday, kiddo.
