Today is our friend's birthday.
Most kids begin counting down to their birthday from the day they have their birthday.
He didn't know.
As soon as Cooper woke up, the first words out of his mouth were a groggy, "Happy birthday, (said his name)."
He didn't even react. I don't think he knew how to react.
My MIL came by today with his present. It was fun to watch him open it, to see him smile.
The biggest smile came when he saw the rice bag she made him.
Then all 5 kids and myself loaded up and headed to Sky Zone...
Five red, sweaty faces completely worn out is my idea of a successful morning.
Tonight, Matt comes home, we will let our friend pick dinner (my bet is on pizza), we will have ice cream and he will get his present from us; Legos, clothes, hot wheels.
He came with nothing.
He will leave with Jesus seeds in his heart and a box full of love.
