5-year old Birthday!

Trip's fifth birthday party was awesome! We had a great time, especially during the treasure hunt. It was a Peter Pan theme, and everyone really enjoyed it. I especially loved the oohs and ahhs when the 'treasure chest' was finally opened with so many things inside! Trip got so many great gifts from friends and family. He has been as happy as I have seen him in a long time this past week just playing with all his new toys and being outside on his new tree swing. Will of course gets to play with everything too, so it is like Christmas for him.

From 'To A Young Son' by Julia Johnson Davis

In your face I sometimes see
Shadowings of the man to be,
And eager, dream of what my son
Will be in twenty years and one.

But when you are to manhood grown
And all your manhood ways are known,
Then shall I, wistful, try to trace
The child you once were in your face?

MY LITTLE ONE - By Tennessee Williams

My little one whose tongue is dumb, whose fingers cannot hold to things, who is so mercilessly young, he leaps upon the instant things, I hold him not.

Indeed, who could? He runs into the burning wood. Follow, follow if you can! He will come out grown to a man and not remember whom he kissed, who caught him by the slender wrist and bound him by a tender yoke which, understanding not, he broke.


We are so very glad that you are happy...
long may you keep so, my dear boy...
May you go on as well
as you have begun.
- Charles Darwin
