One day is just not enough time to celebrate. 

So this week is my “birth week.”

That’s me as a baby – born December 22, 1965.

And yes, I had a big round Charlie Brown head from the very beginning.

I was born in Yakima and was immediately put up for adoption.

I was very fortunate and became the youngest in the “Eyman family” (I have an older brother and older sister).

My adoptive mom Dolores Eyman saved EVERYTHING so I’m gonna share a few things that I think you might find funny / interesting: 

Here’s my first school picture: 

Knowing what you know about me now, read the commentary by my kindergarten teacher — Mrs. Nerpel — on my report card:

“Tim is self confident and is able to express himself well. He obeys classroom rules and appears to be a very happy boy. He is able to get along well with others and is friendly.”

“Tim is able to express his thoughts and ideas fluently in standard english.”

“Tim appears to understand concepts very well and participate in discussions concerning science and social studies. … He shows a great interest in the world around him.”

Too funny.

I went to Wide Hollow Elementary, West Valley Junior High, and West Valley High School, and then graduated from WSU with a business degree.

I did very well in school and my sport was wrestling.

I started out “scrawny” (this picture was taken in 7th grade on the first day before they even taught us a “wrestling stance”):

For years, I lost all the time.

But I stuck with it.

I wrestled in high school but when I got an academic scholarship to WSU, I assumed I was done with it. 

But one of my best friends who was already on WAZZU’s wrestling team convinced me to become a “walk on” member of the team.

I’m so happy I did.

I love wrestling — it’s an amazingly challenging sport.

It taught me a lot of valuable lessons that have really helped me in the political arena.

Persistence, never quitting, always staying on offense.

This Thursday, December 22, I will turn 57.

I’ll be celebrating it all week because I have so much to be thankful for.

Most especially my family:

And I’m incredibly thankful to all of you. There are literally thousands of you who have helped me over the past 25 years.

Together, we have accomplished so many extraordinary things:

It’s because of you — your prayers, your friendship, your support — that I feel like this EVERY SINGLE DAY:

For 57 years, it’s been a thrilling, exhilarating roller coaster ride.

And I am certain that the best is yet to come. 

I will be celebrating those 57 years of life every day this week.

So I urge you to help me celebrate it by doing the best you can to support my legal defense fund so Richard can appeal this absurd ruling.

Together, we will make sure this never happens to anyone else ever again. 

Help me survive this so we can continue to score victories for the people of our state and our nation.
