Happy 8th Birthday Jax

Jax's 8th birthday was a fun one! After coming off a super fun weekend in Boise for Memorial Day where he got a few gifts from his aunts, uncles and cousins he was really excited for his day.  We started the day off with bread dough pudding and then he was off to school for a few hours.  Dave took the day off work and took banana bars into his classroom around 10 for a birthday snack to share with the class and then he picked up all the kids from school and I met them at the Red Monkey for a birthday lunch after I got off work. We played shuffle board, talked and had a nice lunch together. We picked up his friend Joel in the afternoon and he stayed the rest of the day and had dinner and cake with us.  Popee and Memah and Papa and DiDi all came over for his birthday dinner. We had BBQ ribs, hotdogs, quinoa salad, fruit and ice cream cake for dessert.  He said he loved his birthday and his gifts (he got binoculars from us which he is really excited about). 

Jax is such a sweet, kind kid with literally the most kind heart. It amazes me just how much his heart cares for others. He has grown so much in school this year and has become quite the little reader. He loves to tell me all about everything he has learned and loves to learn new jokes and tell them to us. He is my most talkative boy as far as how much he tells me and he always wants to talk and tell me about his day without me even asking. He loves one on one time and is always wanting me to play catch with him or he will hang out in the kitchen while I am making dinner and talk to me. He is always the first to share with his brothers or sisters even sometimes giving up his stuff entirely for them. He is sensitive and very literal so you have to be careful what you tell him because he takes everything as truth.

He has really enjoyed baseball this year and I think it might be his new favorite sport right now. He also really loves music and dancing and wants to take guitar or piano lessons. He has great rhythm so I should probably look into that for him.  He will go into 2nd grade in a new school next year (Berney Elementary) since we will be hopefully moving into our house in late Fall. He seems excited about the new school but sad about leaving his friends. I think he will do just fine, he adapts pretty well to change and seems to make friends easily.

Love you so much Jax! Enjoy your 8th year.
