The 10-year old

Strider had a terrific birthday weekend -- topped off by some pool time with Uncle Deuce and Kai, and dinner with Nonna and Poppa. He was very blessed by all the calls, cards, and gifts he received.

Now that he's 10, I asked him to compose a few Top 10 Lists about his life so far. Here are the results!
