DAY 222

"Birthdays are good for you. Statistics show that the people who have the most live the longest." -Larry Lorenzoni

Little Man celebrated his 10th birthday today at the ballpark with nine of his friends from school. The weather cooporated and we made it through the game without any rain. Little Man got to throw out the first pitch, go in the dugout with all of the players and get their autographs, he got an autographed picture of Joe Winters (our local weather man) that read "Glad we found you after the fun run." (Several years ago he got lost after a race and Joe Winters used his loud speaker to initiate a search party). All the boys got to have lunch and cake and even though the game turned out 5-7, I think everyone had a pretty good time. I guess there are a few perks to living in a smaller city. We couldn't have afforded a birthday party with a professional team.

Here's a copy of his invites sent out. I'm so relieved to finally have this one behind me. I think the parties are finally over, at least for a couple months. (Sigh.)

    I think you've done a great job with your kids! I think it's hard to know if what you teach them will stick, I go through it too! I guess we have to exercise our faith and hope and pray that they'll take the knowledge they have and make the right decisions as they encounter their own little bumps in life! Sometimes I think how hard it is to let go and give them the trust that they need to make those choices on their own in order to grow! But I suppose its' the Life Cycle :)

  2. ps. And its good that we care about whether we've taught them all they need to know or not because a lot of people don't, which is sad
