We had Zack's birthday party today. Everyone had a great time. What a great group of kids! I think that's what makes me happiest---that Zack had found such great friends and had such a good time with them.
So this boy turned 9 today (!). He's creative, smart (and turning into a smart ass. Can't imagine where that could be coming from. 🤔), funny, comfortable in his own skin, a good friend, and an all-around cool kid. (OK, maybe I'm biased.). This year he's really doing well in school, reading at a 4th grade level and he just got moved up to a higher spelling level. He's enjoying reading on his own a lot more, too. He's got a lot of friends and gets along with almost everyone. I'm so glad he's in our life. May he have many more years of happiness.
We started this blog as we began renovations and an addition on our home, and we kept joking that we were giving Abi, our wonderful weimaraner, a new home. Many things have changed since then, and Abi is no longer with us, but in memory of her, we keep the name of the blog the same.
