It’s hard to take him seriously when he wears this helmet despite how serious he is while concentrating as he rides.

What this picture doesn’t capture is his chatty nature. He talks and talks and sometimes I have to remind myself to keep listening because he’s gone on for so long. I’m not sure why kids are so different in this regard – I’ve got kids who give two word answers and they think that is sufficient and then there’s Cannon – chatty as can be. He’ll give me the play-by-play of the math test he took and the the entire bus ride home. I’ll hear a two minute exchange between Cannon and a sibling and he’ll recount it in 5 minutes! 🙂

Hopefully he remains chatty as a teenager – there is nothing I would want more than a chatty teenager!
