Looking Back at Marcus Growing Up: Turning 20 Years Old

Parenting Marcus has been rewarding, a honor and exhausting experience.
When people told us it would get easier when he turned 5 years I thought "Okay"! We worried about his personal safety, education and was he getting enough exercise.
He played soccer, basketball at the Boys & Girls Club, and flag football. During the summers he went to summer camp for tennis, golf and art lessons. We worked hard so that he had this opportunity.
Raising Marcus in San Diego was a fantastic opportunity. He went to the San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park museums many times. My husband use to take him on free Tuesdays to San Diego National History Museum. It quickly became their favorite place to go on my husband's day off.
He attended private and public schools before being homeschooled. We introduced him to the theater, musicals, art and volunteerism at an early age.
Now that our baby is no longer a teen I do tear up a little bit.
We love you Marcus aka The Bacon Eating Kid! Happy Birthday "Little One"!
