First of all before this post really gets started, I wanted to say thank you for all the awesome insight and comments on the previous post. It’s encouraging to me to know there are others out there with a passion like mine to teach our children that character counts! That’s the truth!
Ok, now onto business…
Goofy Foot just celebrated his ninth birthday. We always give our kids the option of a present from mom and dad or a small party with a few friends. This year he chose to go rock climbing with his best buds from school. It turned out to be really fun, and I didn’t even have to clean my house (Come on. Admit you know what I’m talking about). The boys climbed and climbed for an hour and a half. As each friend took turns to climb the walls, the others would shout encouraging words to keep the climber motivated, “You’re almost there!” … “Just a little further!”
I was pretty impressed with these little guys! They made it look easy, but it was seriously hard work!
Here are a few of my favorite pictures from his party:
I love you, Bud!
Happy ninth birthday!!!
