Eight is Great

I'm learning how to embrace the years.  The changes and the growing and this whole getting older business.  I want to say I'm way cool with it, and really, for the most part I am.  Mostly out of surrender - time passes and there's nothing I can do about it!  But also because I am so stinkin' excited to see what each passing year will bring to each of my kids.

But I'm not gonna lie...saying good-bye to seven-year-old Drew last night and hello to eight-year-old Drew this morning was a little rough.  There was certainly a little twinge of sadness in my heart.  But that was quickly followed by an overwhelming sense of grateful am I to be able to call Drew mine!  What a privilege to see this child grow and to be a witness to his each and every day.  I am one proud Mama.

So, today we celebrated EIGHT!

Open gifts {check!}  (He asked for and received Disney Infinity characters, a Pokemon card collector binder, additional Bungees for his game, and Minecraft Legos.)

Cupcakes to share at school {check!}

Earlier than normal video game time {check!} (to accommodate the evening plans)

Dinner at Culvers {check!}  (Cheeseburgers, fries and custard, all around please!}

Pick out Legos at the store {check!}  (We let Drew pick which set he wanted instead of picking one out for him ... which is really just a clever way of saying that mom and dad didn't get the shopping done on time!)

Stay up a *bit* later than normal to assemble said Legos {check!}

This year is gonna be great!
