When he got home from school I let him open one gift. Then I told him if he finished his homework quickly I'd let him open a second. All before Dad got home! The real gift opening began when Dad walked in.
Dang! I thought this was the picture of him opening his Bear Cub Scout book. He had the same excited look. Unlike Isaac, who thought a Scout book as a birthday gift was super lame!
After the gifts were unwrapped Dad said, "Let's go downstairs!" This is what Sam found. He has been riding his little sister's pink bike. But because Dad put Sam's old black and green bike seat on it, he rode it. He's set now!
And then the cake. Look at how happy he is!! Tomorrow he goes to the Bear den! I have 7 more months until I have another 8 year old. I love 8 year olds. But I think I'll like 9 year olds, too! Especially my 9 year old.
