Jax's 7th Birthday

 Jax is 7 today and he was sure excited when he walked out of his room this morning and saw the decorations outside of his bedroom door. He gave me a big hug and waited very patiently for everyone to wake up so he could open his presents.
 He asked for bread dough pudding for his birthday breakfast but he was so excited to play with his new remote control motorcycle that he didn't even eat much of it.
Memah made him a Star Wars blanket which he loves!
 He got to wear the birthday crown at school.
 Case and Colbi bringing in his birthday treats to his class.

 Jax had Joel over in the afternoon and we spent the time playing baseball, completed a treasure hunt and played a game with a bunch of balloons and then of course there was a ton of sword fighting, wrestling and pretending to hunt each other with guns.

Happy Birthday Jax!

 This kid is a sweetie, he has a soft heart and a soft demeanor but he is also a whiz at memorizing (ALL THE THINGS!), whistling, snapping, and rollerblading. He is reading and reading really well, he does great in school and while he complains almost every morning about having to go to school he always seems happy that he went when I pick him up for the day.  He loves to play on the I-pad (annoying at times!) but is also usually up for getting outside and playing with brothers. He has mastered rollerblading and is loving that whenever he can find even ground outside. He played basketball this year and Dave was his coach, he had a good first season. He is playing baseball now and seems to enjoy it. He and Colt are on the same team and it has been a good challenge for Jax to play up with some bigger kids. Kindergarten will finish up next week and he will be on to first grade. But first we will enjoy the summer, soak up time with each other and have a ton of fun.  I am so proud of you Jax and how hard you work when you put your mind to something. I love your heart and that you always ask me to play catch with you or read to you. I will try and say "yes" more often.

Proverbs 3:5-6 - "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will direct your paths."
