Here he is! The seven-year-old of the house! And, while I know it took seven years to get to this place, I feel like it took seven seconds. We blinked. And there he was... a funny, curious, reading-and-writing, fast-running, pun-loving seven-year-old.
Happy Birthday, dear Joe. We love you.
Joe had some fun birthday days. Monday he went birthday bowling with a friend from school, and today he had hot chocolate for breakfast, his Christmas concert at school, a goof-around piano lesson, supper at a restaurant, and birthday cupcakes before bed. And that's a good day when you're seven. Or thirty-seven, for that matter.
