My sister-in-law, Alice, wrote this wonderful tribute to our "baby". He just started Kindergarten without even looking back. I think she really sums up what makes Matthew so wonderful. If you're interested in what makes him exasperating, you probably just need to watch the blog for some of my stories.
Alice comments on his attempt to skate. This video below is of him skating the very next time that I took him to the rink. Still wobbly, but he can stay on his feet.
