Isaac is officially seven years old now! He's pretty darn excited about it too. He pestered me for a few days before his birthday with "It's close enough to my birthday you can just call me your seven year old now, right?"
His two best friends at school also have birthdays in April (all within 10 days of each other), so we just did a group birthday party this year. It was really fun! They invited their whole class and just ran around like crazy. We decided to do something for each of them on the cake, so it was a Pokemon-Power Ranger-Toothless cake. (The Power Ranger was amazing, but super heavy, and I didn't manage to get any pictures of him on the cake except this first one.)
Bean and cheese tacos with sour cream (and sometimes avocado)
Pokemon (Pikachu, Squirtle, and Charmander)
Isaac is almost always the first one up in the morning. He gets dressed, makes his bed, and does his hair before he does anything else. He loves writing stories and drawing elaborate pictures to go with them. He's had a rough year at school, but he's worked hard at being positive about it. He always eats his veggies before his treat in his lunch at school, even if that means he can't have his treat until he gets home. (I actually have to do some serious convincing to get him to eat his dessert first!) He's just a super good kid, and I'm so glad he's part of our family!
