But we took time out to celebrate B! It was so nice that his birthday was before school started this year, although he did have soccer practice. He wanted exactly 3 things for his birthday: heely's shoes, a skateboard, and a bow. He got the shoes from Poppa & Momma, and we were able to get the other items on the wish list. He was so excited! He has spent as much time as possible practicing both archery & skateboarding. I love this kid and his dedication. He is seriously determined!
He LOVES everything active (his birthday wish list was definitely NOT a surprise to us!)
He does not give up easily! He practices until he gets something right. When we were going to watch Preston's soccer practice, I asked if he wanted to take something along to do. He said "no, I'll just sit and watch and maybe I can learn something!"
He loves school, but most importantly, his friends. He has had the same 2-3 best buds since kindergarten.
He is a nature lover through and through. Anything outdoors, animal, or bug-related and this kid is ON IT! He is also my designated spider/bug catcher.
He still loves the occasional cuddle, but he is definitely requesting them less and less. My baby is growing up!
