In honor of Cooper’s 11th birthday, I’m going to be listing 11 random facts about him, followed by 11 questions for an 11 year old! Here goes:

11 Random Facts About Cooper

1. Cooper is an excellent swimmer. He can hold his breath for the longest time, and he started swimming independently when he was only 3 years old. We had him in swim lessons at age 2, and he never even wore floaties.

2. He is crazy good at math! He regularly excels in math class, and we just got his 4th grade state testing scores back this week and his Quantile score was at a 7th grade level.

3. He doesn’t like cake. We had his birthday party last weekend and for the 11th birthday party in a row, he didn’t eat any of his birthday cake.

4. He is a night owl. He will stay awake until the cows come home!

5. He has his own YouTube channel! He posts silly videos and acts like a little goofball. I’ll link it here- if you subscribe to his channel you’ll make his day!

6. He has very unusual food preferences for a kid. He loves fish- especially salmon. And he loves curry! His favorite restaurant at the moment is this Pakistani/Indian restaurant in OKC called Sheesh Mahal. He loves their Butter Chicken dish and their Tikki Masala. Still won’t eat cake though πŸ€”

7. He really wants to get a new dog 😬 We have 2 chihuahuas that are older than he is, and he really wants to get a puppy of his own. We’re currently trying to figure that one out. I’ll keep you posted…

8. He is taking golf lessons! He did camp at Topgolf over the summer and LOVED it, so we signed him up for lessons at a local golf course.

9. He’s also taking horseback riding lessons! Recently, we did a couple trail rides together and he really enjoyed it, so we signed him up for some riding lessons. He started last week and loved it so much!

10. He learned how to play the Recorder in school. He is very proud of his musical skills and all the “belts” he earned throughout the school year.

11. He still loves Halloween and all things scary. He’s trying to negotiate a trip to Florida for October 2023 to go to Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights. His reasoning is that the recommended minimum age is 13, but he knows he’ll be able to handle it at 12 πŸ˜† We’ll see…
