Sweet boy #1 turned 6 this week and it was a momentous occasion. We took a vacation from school. Read 51 straight minutes of his Astronomy book. Built a snow fort outside. Baked a cake that looked like Jupiter (including the great red spot)) and attempted to frost cup cakes to look like some of the planets over 60 moons. He had a friend up for dinner and we ate soup and corn fritters as he requested. Then off to Grammy’s for cake and presents. Sweet boy #3 ate about 3 cupcakes on the sly but all in all after wrestling them into bed an hour late and encouraging a visiting counselor to eat the rest of the cake as we slept (thank you, so so much. That was an incredible help to my self-control to find it gone in the morning), I can officially pronounce it a great day. Happy Birthday Sweet Boy #1. And may your cabin tower truly reach up to Jupiter, and its over 60 moons.
I promise you a crazed animal, a concussion, and a kiss in every single book...you're welcome!
