My sweet little boy turns 7 tomorrow! Wow! We sure love the way he looks at the world so differently and how he finds joy in all the simple things of childhood. He has learned how to swim this summer and loves it—as long as he has his blue goggles. His favorite things to do are play monopoly, chess (especially 4 way with his dad, cousin, and grandpa), swim, of course play the wii and computer (some things never change), and read his Harry Potter books. He is the best big brother to Ray, madie, and lincoln—rarely losing his patience and almost always willing to help me with them.
Today we had an early birthday breakfast of french toast—his favorite. In his prayer he asked that we would travel safe tomorrow to go bowling for his birthday (I guess that is where we will be tomorrow ). He also wanted us to toast to him and his teeth today at breakfast (because its is obviously his teeth's birthday, too).
We just love this little boy and are so grateful to have him in our family. Happy Birthday Jackson!
