You, my son, are amazing. I am so proud of you. For over 4 years you have been asking Santa, begging us and wanting the Lego Death Star. Every opportunity you saw money or a gift opportunity you brought up this set and you still never got it.
Then last year you decided that you wanted it more then anything and you were willing to be patient, sacrifice and save for it. You made a goal for yourself and you had confidence that you coud do it. You asked for money for your birthday instead of presents. You asked to do extra jobs around the house, you took on more responsibility so that you could save up $400. That's a lot of money for an adult to save, let alone a 10 year old boy! Daddy and I thought you might be able to save about half of it but, you surprised us in more ways then one. You showed disipline and hard work and passion and guess what? It paid off!! YOU DID IT!! You got your Death Star!
Good Job, Awesome! When you put your mind to something, you can accomplish anything!!!
Now try not to disappear from us for the next few weeks as you're building it, okay?!
