Cole has become such a firecracker. His small, compact build makes possible speed and agility that comes easily. He can hold his own among those older (along with a new-found temper shining through when the situation calls for it) and has become quite the athlete. In fact, recess football games are a mainstay for him and his friends. So, this year we decided he could have the biggest birthday party he'll probably have at a local training center to play football with an ex-Chicago Bears football player.
We invited 13 boys and guess what? They all could make it! ;) It was a high-energy hour of constant football action followed by Jimmy John's sandwiches (Cole's favorite) and cupcakes. Definitely a celebration that perfectly represented our new 8 year old.
The following evening we had a family gathering to celebrate! Thankful for the beautiful weather that allowed us to be outside and led to a neighborhood "scary" game that had Olivia right in the middle!
