This seven year old has amazed us. His intelligence is amazing. He is great at math, reading, and science. He reads on a third grade reading level in the first grade. He probably knows more about the Bible than me. He cares about others. He uses manners... Most of the time. He loves and plays with his brothers. Talking is something he really seems to enjoy. He can come up with an excuse like no ones business! This boy is way more than I could have ever imagined.
After saying all the above, yes, birthdays are a celebration around here. A celebration of life and love. Since David is a "Spring Break" baby we decided to have his party a week early. We had it last weekend. He invited friends and family over and had a nature hunt outside. The kids ran around and played. They hunted items in the woods on the trail and followed clues. David also got a cool rocket they played with after opening presents. Everyone had ice cream cake from Venice Gelato, dirt pudding, Goldfish, and s'mores snack mix.
Walter and I had planned a trip to the beach to surprise David. We were all going to go to the museum in Mobile since he loves science museums. Those plans have changed due to ball practices and another birthday party. David decided we would go a different weekend. We will stay home and enjoy each other for now.
