Wonder Boy Turns Nine

28 Jun

Yesterday, the most amazing, walking example of God’s love for me turned nine years old.  I am not sure where the time is going.  Every year, he seems to be growing faster.   His knowledge, gained from experience, observation, and books, just grows and grows.  His outlook on life, despite his gaining knowledge, remains exuberant, bright, and hopeful.   I look at this child and I see hope.  I see DH and I- only much better versions of ourselves.  (Except in the area of stubbornness- Kiddo is one hundred times more stubborn than either of us…  sigh)

In an effort to celebrate the wonder of our Kiddo, despite the craziness that is our life right now, we were still able to have a small party for him.

Lemon-flavored, Minecraft-inspired cake by Simply Scrumptious Cakery.  It was perfect, though much bigger than I expected it to be.  hehe

Kiddo got to spend some time the past couple of days with his “brother-from-another-mother”— The two really could pass for brothers, and I know they will both miss each other a great deal.  I sure hope we can keep these two in contact despite the distance.  🙂

Kiddo got some new (used) PS3 games from DH and I, as well as a Texas travel mug with all the things he loves most about Texas on it (to include the Alamo, and the Texas Seal.)   He also got some really thoughtful gifts from family and friends.
This birthday was nowhere near as planned out or extravagant as many of his previous birthdays.  However, the only thing he said he really wanted for his birthday was the opportunity to visit his favorite places around San Angelo before we move.  We intend to spend our last few days, even as we finish packing up and organizing the camper and settling details with our realtor, visiting those places.  San Angelo has really captured our Kiddo’s heart- and I know because of that, San Angelo will always be a place he can call “home.”

    This move has been much more difficult for him, and yet, he has really done a great job at being honest about his feelings while still trying to see the positive sides to the move. And yes- he did have a really great day! 🙂 Thank you for your comment!

    He is growing so fast! Happy Birthday to him! Must be very hard for him to say goodbye to a place he likes so much. But looks like he still had a really great day!
