Colt's 9th Birthday

Today Colt is 9! We celebrated in Long Beach, WA because we are on vacation here with Dave's family for the week.
 I do not have many pictures from his birthday but we started the morning with german pancakes and bacon then spent time in the pool and at the beach. We did a birthday dinner and instead of cake Colt chose ice cream sundaes for his birthday dessert. After dinner we went and rode go-carts and Colt got to drive on by himself which he told us was the best part of the vacation.

Colt is one of a kind. He reminds me so much of Dave it is a little freaky. He is responsible, sensitive, a huge animal lover, always takes care of me and wants to help me out (with Dave being gone so much this has been so wonderful) and for the most part is a pretty awesome big brother to all his siblings. He loves any sport he seems to play but really has a big heart for football right now. He is very mechanical and has no problem figuring out how things work or fixing things for me. He truly has the kindest heart and it is such a joy to see him grow and just get more and more fun every year. He had a great year in 2nd grade and grew so much academically as well as emotionally. I have noticed a big change in him this year (in a really wonderful way) and it has been fun to watch.

Jeremiah 29:11 -  For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
