On the day Remi turned 8, he had school. He really, really, wanted us to take him fishing instead of going to school!
The boys woke up super early because Remi was excited to open his present from Roen and Roen could hardly wait for Remi to open his present! Micah was out of town, so I made Remi wait until later that evening to open his present from us.
Remi has wanted a certain Hot Wheels Shark Rescue Boat since summer and had the biggest smile on his face when he walked in and saw it waiting on the couch for him. Roen also got him some new Beyblades and two wooden domino sets that Remi wanted ( he likes setting them up in patterns to knock down). Pretty much, Roen got him everything he asked for!
I know this picture is so blurry, but this shows just how happy Remi was when he ran out and saw his shark boat from Roen!

For breakfast we had biscuits and bacon (Remi's request) and sang happy birthday.
I took Remi Taco Casa for lunch and since they have lunch at the same time, Roen got to eat tacos with us. Just us three sat at the end of a table all by ourselves, and we really had the sweetest little lunch just chit chatting about the important things in their worlds.
After school, Remi had tutoring and they both had football practice that evening- Micah got home just before practice. I put a roast in the crock pot so we could have dinner ready when we got home, and then I made Remi his only request for his birthday dinner- asparagus. That little booger ate the entire pan!
It was a busy day, packed full of things we had to do, but in between we found time to make it special. Long gone are the days before they were in school, when Micah took off work so we could spend the whole day celebrating!! I can't say these days aren't as good, because that is just not true. There really is something special about the hustle and bustle of school, sports and this season of life that seems to revolve around the boys- whether we want it to or not!
