Happy Birthday, Alec!

To my oldest:

you are
learning cursive and ready to learn to type
 ready for single-digit multiplication and division
an avid reader
every bit as excited as me (I think!) for our new curriculum this fall
a good student when you have a good attitude

sad that your best friend is gone
being brave about making new friends
excited to see your best friend at his new house
enjoying being social at choir (even though you say you're not!)
learning to be a leader instead of a follower

so creative
so good at playing with Benji
so good at doting on Ava and making her laugh
incredibly talented in the Lego department
beginning to enjoy "Dad stuff": football, basketball, hunting, shooting, mowing the grass (and Dad is loving it!)

You are my dependable one, always there to help out if I'm in a jam
I'm so much looking forward to the years to come,
watching you grow
into a man
(can we skip the teenage years?)

We love you so much!!!

This was our first time to have a birthday party somewhere other than our house.  We took 9 boys bowling.  It was cheap, it was fun, and the house was not messy! We may seriously consider doing this again!!!

We did come back for cake and presents, but by the time that was over, the parents were there. 
Get 'em sugared up and send 'em home!!

I can't believe he is 9! I remember holding/watching him in the Spa basement while you did someones hair upstairs. Wow! time flies!
Happy Birthday to Alec!

Happy Birthday Alec! We'll have to have an "everyone" birthday party while you're here. :)
