Trip is Six!

All kinds of amazing things can happen in one year. But the incredible things that children do in the span of 12 months are as enjoyable to think and talk about as eating a fancy cupcake, like the ones in this picture. Expensive and so sugar-y; worth every single delectable bite.
Uncle Joe, helping Trip put together a special new racetrack from Phillips' Toy Store, a favorite place to go.

We also took a group to Chucky Cheese, per the six-year-old request.





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.

Poem

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
