His father’s son

The way his face looks when he is concentrating 100% on the task at had, it’s exactly his father’s. I love seeing Craig’s traits come out in our older son – things that aren’t learned, things that just are because they share the same DNA. I see it in Cameron more than Jake, and I’m not sure if it’s because he is the oldest, because I’ve been studying him longer than Jake or just because he simply takes after his dad. But man, he is so his father.

Today at Tae Kwon Do it was his turn to do shell and 2 punches. I watched his face from the cold metal bench, I could see his focus completely on his teacher and the pads in front of him. He executed each movement with precision and force, making sure he did his best. After the skill was over and the kids were seated, the teacher called him up to show the rest of the class, now all eyes were on him. He again had the focus of a lion watching its prey, making sure it was all done perfect.

I can’t wait to see how far he takes it.



  1. So proud of Cameron and of Craig! To “always give it your all”, is a wonderful trait to have and to pass on. Just know that our little Cameron (and Jake) will develop into a remarkable man, just like his Daddy. Love to you all!
