Tom: He celebrated his 7th birthday this week. Grace: Our snowball tree was cut back a little harsh last year, however it blossomed with a vengeance this spring
Tom didn't want a birthday party this year. He had one when he turned 6, but found it overwhelming with 10 mates all competing for his attention. I made a batch of cupcakes and took them to school where we sang happy birthday to the boy with the freckles and scraggly hair. I think I may have embarrassed him.. only just.
