eight years old

My sweet Colin turned eight just over a week ago. We had to put all the festivities on hold since Sawyer was sick. So we celebrated at home with some mexican take-out and a chocolate cake.






We got him a new lego set. I’ve had it since before Christmas! I think he was really surprised.


His Nana gave him his jean quilt that she made. It’s been a long time coming Winking smile


A kite from Auntie Amy


We did take him over to Meme & Grandad’s house so he could open his gifts there. They gave him some new “super fast” running shoes & a Ninjago movie.



I’m looking forward to continue celebrating my firstborn with a super fun Nerf gun party soon! There is still much fun to be had!


I don’t think I can adequately express how proud I am of you. You are a bringer of love and fun and curiosity! You are smart and funny and all the kids in your class can testify to this because they like to tell me when I come up to visit you at school. I love that you love to play hide-n-seek with me and it warms my heart when I see you and your sister playing so well together. You both like to play spies! I look forward to watching you continue to grow and mature into the young man you are becoming. You have a tender heart, my young warrior boy. I hope that as you grow older you can turn that tenderness into compassion to do a whole lot of good. You love the Lord and told me you’d like to read the whole Bible this year. I’d love to help you reach that goal! I love you son! xoxo- Mom
