Oh, how belatedly I am writing this post.
So many intentions to write,share,
and remember
but time just slips away.

W’s 8th birthday was a month ago.
And birthdays are a special thing around here.
The one day that is all about you.
Your likes, dislikes, and wishes catered to.

Extended family celebrations surrounded his day,
an ice cream party at the park.
His actual birthday included a dinner of bangers and mash,
a raspberry sponge cake with whipped cream,
and gifts selected with his funny and diverse interests in mind.

A jellycat kitty he named Victoria
This fun book full of activities and lessons geared towards boys, but would be great for girls as well
A tee with a contrast pocket
A solar system puzzle with wall poster
A feather headdress made from feathers found on our walks
(sanitized in a combo of hydrogen peroxide and rubbing alcohol)
and a polar bear  for his cake

It is hard to believe that he is 8 and in second grade,
but what a wonderful day he had.
