Who turned 8?


Tuesday, November 9th James turned "8" years old.  I can't believe that my baby boy is turning into a big boy.  Second grader, six teeth lost, no more baby fat, slim and fit, and surprises me daily with the new things he learns.  I am so proud of him and who he is becoming. 

These past few months had been extremely hard for him and transitionally he has had some ups and downs, but all in all, he has adjusted far better than I had expected.  He has made lots of friends, enjoys school, loves his scooter, bikes, his PSP and legos.  His new addition of fun is sleeding in the snow and trying to stay on his feet while sliding on the ice.  However, he hasnt been as successful in that area, but I am sure he will master it.  :)

James' birthday ended up becoming a birthday week.  We celebrated all week long with opening presents from his grandparents and uncles and aunts, going to dinner, celebrating with James in his Music program at his school, and had a present scavenger hunt throughout our house which James enjoyed doing.   Although, James said his best birthday gift was that it snowed on his birthday.  He was so excited!  Our kids, along with the neighborhood kids, spent several hours sledding down the hill in our cul de sac.

These are words that come to my mind when I think about my son!  Thank you Lord Jesus for a talented, high eneregy, friendly and lovable boy who you have entrusted Nick and I to. 

I love you JD!

Happy Birthday....
