Happy Birthday, Timothy!

Wow!  My oldest is 20 years old today! We had a lovely day. The kids and I took Tim out to see the movie, How to Train a Dragon. It was a fun, family-friendly movie. When Daddy got home, we went to a Himalayan restaurant. Timothy really likes experiencing different kinds of ethnic foods. Grandma also joined us for dinner. The food was spicy. I was pleased and surprised that all of the little kids found something they would eat from the two meals bought to split between them. 

We came home for cake and presents. Timothy got a new keyboard pull-out shelf for his computer stand, fencing clothes and foil (the sport he has been into for a few years now), and a travel vest with many pockets.

Our tradition is to list a descriptive word for each year of our child's life.  So, here are 20 words to describe Tim:   
  • Brave
  • Strong-willed
  • Talkative
  • Protective
  • Obedient
  • Loving
  • Devoted
  • Naturalist
  • Intellectual
  • Funny
  • Curious
  • Helper
  • Friendly
  • Exuberant
  • Survivor
  • Energetic
  • Egalitarian
  • Spiritual
  • Strong

Blessings, Dawn
