Pepper is a joy and a delight. He has a great sense of humor, loves to spend time with his family, and adores his baby sister, Sweet Pea, who adores him right back. Pepper is very intelligent, and makes all A's when he applies himself. He struggles to apply himself due to his prevalent ADD. He is growing in his physical strength, courage, and his ability to control his temper. He especially excels at memorization, and memorized 397 Bible verses this year! He also excels in his karate classes, and recently earned his purple belt. 

Happy 9th Birthday, Pepper! I love you beyond measure.
