Happy birthday to John!

March 5, 2016

The boys have been preparing for John’s birthday all week. They’ve made cards and decorations, helped make granola and cheesecake, and thought of gift ideas. On his birthday today, a few older SITAG kids helped our boys create a scavenger hunt around the SITAG buildings. Then D and M joyfully led John on the scavenger hunt to find the small gifts they’d chosen and hidden for him.

The Choates made waffles for us this morning, and we had a lovely morning talking with each other and reading books to the boys. This afternoon, I helped D and M and a friend paint pictures. This evening, we had the Van Andels over to share dinner, dessert, and much noise and laughter.

John and I have both been sick some this week, so I didn’t do as much preparation for his birthday as I would have liked. I wasn’t able to go grocery shopping yesterday, so the Choates picked up some groceries for us. Today ended up being a wonderful day, thanks to our generous friends and our joyous children!
