With his shaggy hair and crooked grin, no one has to tell Hartland sixth-grader Colin Krueger that he is special, he already knows.
But turning twelve on 12/12/12 just adds to the long list of things that are unique to the Farms Intermediate student.
“All my birthdays are special,” Colin said, “but yeah, this one is pretty cool.”
It was only a few weeks ago that Colin said he put all the numbers together and realized the signficance of turning twelve on his birthday.
"My parents already knew it," he said. "They just let me figure it out on my own."
Being one of the rare kids to have the honor of such a unique birthday, Colin admits he is excited to be one of them, but says he is even more excited for his birthday party with friends.
And in honor of Colin turning twelve on 12/12/12, he shared twelve fun facts about himself.
