Turning 18 is a pretty big deal. It's that age that is such a real step towards adulthood: a young man has to register with selective services; they are, in the eyes of the law adults; and they can register to vote. Hop took care of everything by himself. I tried to be minimally involved, because at some point he will not have me as his personal pop-up reminder. After you register to vote, it usually takes about two to three weeks to get the little piece of paper saying you are officially registered. We received his confirmation last week! Yea!!!

|Hop casting his vote. Awesome!|
I have to give a shout-out to Mrs. Anne & Mrs. Cindy. Mrs. Anne usually checks big Hopson & me in when we vote. She had jumped up to do something, so Mrs. Cindy checked us in instead. Big Hopson voted first thing this morning, so he beat us. Yes, everything in our house is a competition. It makes things fun. But for me, it was a proud moment to share this experience, another one of those wonderful firsts in my child's life. I'm running out of firsts; we've had so many and you know what? I'm selfish. ALL those firsts are mine! I wouldn't trade you all the money in the world for them. It is nice to have a wonderful first amid so many lasts of this year!
