Birthday boy!

Our handsome boy turned 6 yesterday!  SIX!  What in the world is going on?!  Its as if time is flying by faster by the day!  The last six months have really brought a change in Max....I think bringing Ellie home has a lot to do with that.  He's more responsible, patient, compassionate....so much like a young man rather a little boy.  His face is changing too...and his legs are so long!  He's carrying on conversations with Stephen and I that sometimes blow me away! 

Kindergarten is going SO well, he loves being there!  I volunteered in his classroom this week and we are so blessed Max has the teacher he does.  She's wonderful and I think he's in for a fantastic year!

Now, onto the birthday fun!

 Early morning birthday breakfast before school....donuts!! 

 Stephen surprised Max at school and brought cupcakes to celebrate!!

Time for presents!


 Lek and Edmond gave Max a Nintendo DS when we celebrated his birthday with them in Thailand.  He LOVES playing it and new games were top on his wish list!

Four wheeled scooter!!

Trying it out!

Birthday dinner!
















 Time for cake!

Max approves!

It was a great day, celebrating an incredible boy.  Praying for lots of opportunities to slow down and enjoy each moment of this next year!
