Finally 6

My boy Blake is finally 6 years old. We have celebrated and celebrated but today is the actual day; I even waited to post until 10 a.m. CST to be legit.

He had his class party today. They do such a nice celebration for the birthdays with songs, prayer and the kids and teacher honor the birthday student.

It was neat to see so many of the kids in the class raise their hand to honor Blake. Most honored him for Joy, always so happy and fun and for being a nice friend to everyone. His teacher added for his faith in Jesus and his beautiful prayers.

I know I am bias but I agree with all that was said. Blake you are a wonderful son. So full of life, always a friend and not only do you love Jesus with your whole heart you are not afraid to show it! I am so proud of you and love you dearly!

And regardless of the masks you love to wear- whether it be Darth Vadar, Transformers, Superman, or Spiderman you will always be my precious little boy, Richard Blake!
