Happy Birthday, My Treasured Son!

Could it really be that my ds is turning 8 today? He is growing up so fast!

He started his day by getting up at 3:30 am and getting his morning present that we had set outside his bedroom door. Then at that hour in the morning, he played with his new Lego set.

When I checked on him at 5:45 am, he was asleep again. He slept until 7:30 am which is late for him.  We had a relaxing day at home and then headed out to Chuckie Cheese to see some of his friends and play games.

 Then we went to dinner at Ryan's. The kids loved the all-you-could-eat buffet. Tom Sawyer really liked getting lots of Legos and the game, Bug-opoly!

Here is a list of 8 characteristics that describe our son:
  • early-riser
  • affectionate
  • artistic 
  • very smart
  • sensitive
  • curious
  • strong-willed
  • a leader
Blessings, Dawn 


  1. Happy Birthday to Tom Sawyer! I love the picture of him with the Bug-opoly game. I've never seen the game before but it looks like something that would go over well here!



  2. What a fun day. I love fillng the childrens birthday's with things they love to do. :-)

    Thanks so much for stopping by my new blog and leaving a comment. I use it as a journal which is why I have been good about filling it out daily. I need a place I can remind myself I'm not truly alone in this homeschool endeaver, but God is with me each step of the way, so I'm trying to keep that the focus for now.

    My son who is starting violin is also eight. I believe there are many people who start their children earlier, that's just the age we feel our kids should be able to handle the practices and, of course, the disappointment of not playing perfectly. :-)

    Have a blessed day, and I hope your son enjoys his gifts.

  3. Ah, Happy Birthday Tom Sawyer!!!!

    I have to dc love Ryan's, too. They were so disappointed last year when ours went out of business.
