It's strange when your youngest has another birthday. It's the last time one of our children will turn eight years old.. Even though we didn't go out to a restaurant or to an arcade, I think our son had a pretty good day.
Our youngest, like all our kids, is a unique spirit. Being the last child there was a possibility that he wouldn't have joined our little family. But, after three, both my wife and I just knew there was another child waiting to be a Taylor.
Today he got several phone calls, a visit from his church teachers (delivering brownies...), and, while at work, I did a video call to wish him a happy birthday. He LOVES video calls, but I suspect he likes seeing his face on the computer screen more than he does actually communicating.
Happy birthday, kiddo! We're so glad you came to play!
