"If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon and that you will—to your surprise—miss them profoundly."
-Pres. Thomas S. Monson

Will turns 7!

How in the world am I old enough to have a seven year old?  Time marches relentlessly on, and we celebrated another birthday at our house.

Will turned 7 today.  It's crazy because I still imagine him as my car lovin' 2 year old.  He's most definitely not.  He can do multiplication better than I can, he reads chapter books well above his grade level, and I even (gasp!) let him stay at home by himself for the first time ever the other night while I ran the young women home after our activity.

So, what I'm saying is:  HE'S NOT MY BABY ANYMORE.  Heartbroken.  And a little excited.  We trudge forward knowing this new year will bring different challenges and joys, all packed into one seven-year-old kid.

Oh, boy, do we love him.

The festivities were three-fold:  Zoo Birthday with his 3 best friends (Grace, Julian and Beckham), an early surprise- a pet lizard!, and finally presents and cake.
