Today was Josiah’s 10th birthday. Christina and I decided that when our kids turn 10 years old, they would stop having birthday parties with their friends – practical reasons as well as budget constraints.
Instead, we allow them to choose an activity that they want to do with the whole family and then they get to choose a place to go out to eat. Josiah chose to go glo-golfing and eat at a Japanese restaurant.
It was a joy to see Josiah getting surprised by his presents. There was one in particular that he liked – a baseball glove. It reminded me of the time when I was young and received a baseball glove from my parents.
I can’t believe our kids are growing up. When they were babies, I couldn’t wait for them to grow up and now, it seems like they are growing up too quickly. I have 8 more years with Josiah before he goes off to college.
We ran out of candles so we told Josiah to pretend we had 10 candles
Oh the joy a baseball glove can bring to a child’s heart
