My oldest son (second born child), celebrated his 11th birthday on August 2nd! We celebrated with two parties this year--one friend party and one "family" party which included extended family and some friends also.
Son, you have grown so much and are getting more mature each year! It is so hard to imagine that you have been with us for 11 years! You are a true blessing to our family! The Lord has blessed you with a mild and calming spirit (most of the time) which is why I think animals trust you when they are afraid of other children. You have shown that you are most comfortable with small groups of friends, but you are doing well with trying to get to know new friends.
The Lord bless you my "swift moving, gift of God"! He has a wonderful plan for your life!
