For Matthew’s 9th Birthday he asked to go bowling. We have a nice bowling alley right here on base so that made it easy. Later I told him he could invite his buddies.
He is with these boys all. the. time. Three live right by our house and one lives on the next street over and all the boys are in Cub Scouts together. The one on the right end? His dad is Matt’s den leader. These are great boys. Since we had to have neighbors…and they all are going to have children…these are ones that I’m glad Matt has as friends. As I type this they are all in Matt’s bedroom playing with his Legos.
Matt wanted a Star Wars theme for his birthday. Nevermind that he’s never seen the movies. I promise to remedy that sometime in the future. I’m actually not sure if he knows there is a movie. He just likes the action figures!
I love my boy, my first son. He has the best dimples. He’s kind-hearted, gentle, and compassionate. He’s a good friend, a good brother. I’m so glad God gave him to me!
He had a great time. The other families were there also and it was a good time!! He got lots of new Legos, a huge tackle box to store them in, and also some fun airplanes.
Happy 9th Birthday, Matthew James! May your 10th come much slower!
