Daughter G had a birthday last week. First birthday to be away from home. It felt really weird. But, she had a good day, celebrated by so many college friends, who were able to surprise her not once, but TWICE with little bits of celebration. The second surprise I got to help with...I had sent her room-mate a cake, plates, hats, balloons, etc, and the girls on her floor walked in with the cake lit, singing happy birthday to her, while our family was skyping with her! Very fun.
Yesterday it was son G's turn. Cannot BELIEVE that he is 17! What an amazing 17 (19!) years these have been.
We spent the day at our homeschool co-op, where he got to see lots of his friends on his birthday. That doesn't always happen for our kids, so it was nice!
Double kick pedal for our drum set - hey, it's what he wanted!
We love you so much, G! You have been a joy since the day you were born, and we are delighted that God chose you for our family. May you have a fabulous senior year of high school, growing in wisdom and stature, and favor with God and man.
