Tomorrow night, my baby brother Jacob graduates from high school. It's cliché, but honestly, it's so hard to believe he's already graduating. I vividly remember when my parents told us they were pregnant with Jacob. I was so mad because I thought it was another girl and that I'd have to share my room with yet another person. ;) Jacob was 11 lb 11 oz when he was born, and my parents hadn't found out the gender, so when he entered this world, the doctor said "It's a boy! It's a BIG boy!" My mom didn't believe the doctor because she'd had so many girls (there are 6 girls and 2 boys in our family).
When my sister was at Riley Hospital with Leukemia, my parents stayed with her and all of us kids got split up between family members. Jacob was only a year old and I was a junior in high school. We both stayed with my grandparents, so I had the opportunity to help take care of my baby brother, which girls tend to love anyhow, but he was a super cute kid, so it was especially awesome.
Jacob is now 6 ft. 3 in. and towers over me (I'm only 5 ft tall), but he's still my baby brother. He's an amazing athlete and is going on to play college basketball for Indiana Tech. I'm so proud of what he's done and can't wait to see what he accomplishes over the next few years. Congratulations, Jacob! Good luck in your college career!
