Boy Wonder Turned 6 - Crazy!

Boy Wonder had a wonderful Birthday weekend, complete with family party, playing in the backyard, and about 40 holes of "glo golf" (dark mini-golf course with black lights, an underwater theme of brightly colored sea creatures, and balls that glow under the black lights) that we enjoyed on Sunday. We managed to get the house cleaned, carpets cleaned and lawn mowed before the family party, and Wife did last minute pick-ups and prep work while I studied Saturday morning. We did not exactly have out the Riedel wine glasses, but everything looked just right for a 6-year-old's birtday party. His theme was Crayola Art - so lots of bright colors and a cake decorated with a box of chalk and container with a little chalkboard on the outside. Very cute and so appropriate for our budding artist. He is always interested in art supplies and creating things. He's a bit of a non-representational artist - his things are more free-flowing, which may not win him points at school, but we don't like to stifle his creativity by insisting he draw identifiable objects in expected colors.

How did our boy get to be 6? He was three when I started law school. How time flies!

Fly it does. I remember thinking how he would be seven when you finished school. Seven! That seemed impossibly far away when I looked at his little 3 year old face. And his 6 month old sister would be 4. Four? No way. She couldn't even walk yet. That was surely a lifetime away. How would we ever make it to that far away goal?

And here we are. Boy Wonder is six and Baby Girl is three. Only one more year of school. Amazing.

Mmmm-hummm. Just wait till you write a post saying .... "I can't believe he is 38! He was 6 just a few days ago!"

Three years from now when he is nine and you are thick in your practice of law (was it energy?) I hope that you will still be here. I'll be checking in.
