My youngest turned 10 today! I can hardly believe it....I know, all moms say that don't we? These past 10 years have been a blur of blessings....he's such a great kid! He's creative, funny and helpful. He makes me smile and brings joy to all of us....what a wonderful blessing he has been in our lives!
We're celebrating pretty low key today and have plans in the works for a 'friend' birthday party. I realized that I just don't have the gumption to try and pull off an at home party for a bunch of boys (I'm not that brave)....we're hoping to hit the gym next weekend and wear them out with some basketball! In the meantime, he's requested chicken enchiladas for dinner and he'll open presents after basketball practice tonight.
Back before Christmas, I made a celebration banner and his is the inaugural birthday for using it! I followed Jodi's tutorial and it turned out fabulously. I used some store bought bias tape for the string.
It was the first thing John Samuel noticed when he got up this morning. (see, I told you he's a pretty special kid!) I've been wanting one for a while and now we'll have one to use for all the family celebrations! Our birthday wreath is also proudly on display so that everyone knows there's a birthday to celebrate.
We're taking it lightly with school today...another benefit of homeschooling (at least in the elementary years...your mom can take away some subjects for you on your birthday!) Hope your days are full of celebrations as well!
