Elliott turned SIX two weeks ago! Whoa...time better start slowing down. Six years have gone way too fast!
Last year, on Elliott's fifth birthday, we were still living with my parents! So I guess time is relative, it goes by quickly when you look at how much your kids change, but it seems like we've been back in our house f.o.r.e.v.e.r. and it's only been a year.
Anyway...here are some highlights from my boy's big birthday.
We brought lunch to Elliott at school to celebrate. His request? Burger King. He wanted a crown. :) We sat with a couple of his little friends who were SO funny. I love hearing little kids talk to each other. Random!
There are lots of things we are loving about the Christian school where Elliott attends...and here's a small example. Even on your birthday, they are taught to serve others first. So the birthday boy handed out a cupcake to each person in his class before he could take one.
this post where I talked about sitting at my sewing machine for days on end? Well, it was worth it for the reaction from these little ones.
Before they even knew what the 'surprise' was...the little red haired girl said "Let's give him some love" and proceeded to almost tackle Elliott with a sweet hug. Everyone else followed her and before long, there was quite a pile up on our boy. These kids were excited!
