Today is your day. You’re the last birthday of our year and you have been counting down for 3 weeks. You seemed to enjoy soaking up every well-wish and every good thing about today. The weather was perfect and after a long wait this evening we finally went out to dinner for your pick…pancakes.
You’ve grown up so much over the past year. You are trying new things with more ease than before and still, you never cease to amaze me at how easily you can make a friend. You’re constantly singing a tune and teaching us the songs you know. You’ve tried different sports like soccer, baseball and flag football. In football you seem to like the sidelines better than the actual games. I think you liked soccer better. The only reasons you hang in there is (1) because Mom and Dad won’t let you quit and (2) you love the snack! Life is still pretty simple when you’re 7.
You’ve proudly become a Cub Scout. You adore your baby sister and help me so much with her. You are extremely thoughtful, loyal, and considerate. And you make us laugh alot too. We love you, Gabe! Happy 7th year. We thank our Lord for the gift he gave us in you!
