8 Years Old

If ever I needed a day to remind me that life is worth every breath I take, yesterday was it. My middle son turned 8 yesterday. We had a great party at the indoor putt-putt place that he has been talking about for 6 months! It was wonderful. The owner was johnny on the spot with everything and I didn't have to lift a finger, well maybe a finger but he was a great host and really made the night fun. I also made the world's smartest mom move and got Jack a babysitter! I had visions of him running through the joint, swinging a golf putter at everyone and everything, so I employed one of the most capable 16 year old girls I know to be his source of entertainment and I didn't have to wipe pizza or cake off the ceiling!!

Matthew was thrilled to receive so many great toys and he even posed long enough for a photo! What a great night.
