It has been quite a while since I have written and even longer since I last wrote about Little Man. Little Man is now seven. Seems impossible, but he turned seven on Friday this past week.
Hubby and I traveled to see him and were able to spend time with him. It was glorious! I always come away with a lesson learned from him and this time was no exception.
Friday we spent a couple of hours with him in the pool. It was a fun time with lots of laughter and splashing and rough-housing. He showed us his jumps into the pool, his cannonball, his karate kick jump, and his vertical alligator jump. All named appropriately, and each delivered with grace and style. If they were to be judged by this Grammy, they would all be a 10.
We played cards, and Rock em, Sock em Robots. It was a tie at the cards, but only because the game was interrupted by dinner and then forgotten for a bit. I lost the battle of the robots, much to the glee of the seven year old.
The lesson I have learned this past weekend? To live life with joy. Embrace the fun that life holds. Jump into the pool of life instead of gently lowering yourself into the tide and flow. Most of all, hug, laugh and make funny noises when words fail you.
Happy Birthday Little Man, you will always have my heart as I learn from your example.
Thanks for stopping by today. Cathi (DAF)
