Pax is 7

Happy happy birthday to our Paxton! I can’t say enough that each year with this boy is simply more fun than the last. I love watching him grow and take in the world around him. I love seeing him grasp new things and make them his own. His eagerness to learn is inspiring and makes my heart soar. Together we talked about where he might want to take his seven year photos. We talked about the things that he’s interested in and what brings him joy. I suggested a trip to the library downtown might reflect how much he loves to read and his face lit up. We spent time picking out new books, investigating the massive tabletop dictionary, reading outside on the glorious upstairs patio and then on the way out, we hit the jackpot! We found a massive chess set…another one of his favorites. We made a beeline for the giant chess pieces and finished with a chess match. The last photo should give you a hint as to who won this one 🙂
