Kobe will be out of school before his birthday so I decided today would be a good day to celebrate with his class before it gets lost in the mix.
Kobe told me he wanted to give out "stretchy things" like last year and smarties. I just threw in the air heads for good measure.Here is Kobe standing uncomfortably while his class sings Happy Birthday to him. I feel your pain Kobe, it makes me uncomfortable too. (the blue on his face is from his slushy they serve the kids every Friday)
(his class singing)
He was so excited to hand out his prizes. The teachers always send home a note at the beginning of the year asking the parents to not send in anything messy for birthday treats so no cupcakes!
I was walking behind Kobe in our hallway that leads to the bedrooms (after we got home) and he looked back at something and I saw his face and for a second I fully felt how lucky I am to have this boy. I know I'm lucky, but every once in a while it overwhelms me :)
Praise God for this little boy!
