My oldest turned 10 on Saturday. Holy cow, how did we get into double digits already?! I tried to convince Jacob to let me throw him a big party--even renting a bouncy house playplace--but he just wanted a few friends for an overnighter. (He's definitely a small-group kind of kid. I should've known better.) And they had a great time. :)
Jacob didn't want a regular birthday cake either. He requested my zucchini chip bread that is his all-time favorite. Candles in zucchini bread? Definitely a first for me. :)
I love the unique individual this boy is! He marches to his own beat, a quality I admire. It's a great privilege to watch him grow, form opinions of the world, and decide who he is.
