You went back to school on the Monday after your birthday so I took some Krispy Kreme doughnuts for your class.  It was also another boy's birthday and he brought cupcakes so your class got double treats.  They were all very happy and loved the doughnuts. 

Dear Evan,

I can't believe you are almost a decade old.  Sometimes, I can't believe we have been parents for 9 whole years and other times I can't believe it has only been 9 years.  We have packed so much adventure into the 9 short years of your life, and I hope you always cherish your memories of the special times of your childhood.   You have fulfilled our deepest wishes for what fun and joy parenting can be.  You have grown from a funny, smiling, and happy toddler to an independent and intelligent student and athlete.  You love school and any sport known to man.  You love playing soccer, basketball, and baseball and want to try football next in the Fall.  Mommy is going to be a nervous wreck!  You are still a great student in school and always very well behaved and get lots of good behavior awards.  You love saving up your "Hawk bucks" at school to buy special prizes or privileges.  This year, you have most improved in your reading and writing abilities, and you always get high marks in those areas and are still a great math student.  Your busy schedule keeps you from reading as much as you would like, but you still love it.  We are just so proud of you and can't wait to see what your future holds academically, athletically, socially, and spiritually.  We want you to continue to grow in all areas of your life but always keep your kind-hearted and caring personality.  I hope you enjoyed your birthday and Spring Break and that you added even more wonderful memories to your childhood!  




  1. I can't believe this boy is nine! Spencer will be following right behind him soon. Where did our first born babies go Sherry? Nine is just so big.

    It sounds like Evan had a great birthday with tons of celebrating. I like some of the questions you asked him and I might expand Spencer's birthday interview this year. I can't believe Evan likes chicken wings!

    1. Ugh, I have no idea! I mean, next year they will be a decade old! A decade! Just crazy! Oh Evan has loved spicy chicken wings for a long time. His favorites are Hooter's of course. ;-)

  2. Happy birthday Evan! You are one special guy!

  3. How is he NINE already?!?!? It's so fun to read his interview because, even though Sam is two year younger, he and Evan are a lot alike. Except Sam loves lettuce! Ha!


Leave some love! Your comments make me happy!
