I now have 5 teenagers. FIVE! I know. It's unbelievable to me, too. I am so blessed. Always cooking, folding laundry, and chauffeuring children all over the place, but so, so blessed. This boy makes my heart so happy, and I was very glad for the opportunity to celebrate him all day long on his birthday.
This was his birthday MINUTE! We were watching a brother's soccer game, but stopped and sang to son C on this minute right in front of all the soccer fans and everyone.
Later he opened his gifts. Sadly, his sister G is gone at camp and wasn't able to be there, but she did give him this awesome.....
.....new nerf gun!
Daughter H and Little Man gave him a Captain America frisbee. (Little Man is okay, just "wearing" tape!)
Sons G and L gave him a new nerf football.
And we gave him a new bike helmet with a note inside saying that we would be going to the store so that he could pick out a new bike!
Welcome to the teen years, son C. You are a wonderful young man with a heart for God and others. I love you so much! Have a great year being 13. :)
