we celebrated jacob's 6th birthday this weekend. kinda hard to believe. a little bit surreal, but not so much as the day he was born. we love this boy. we are so thankful for the blessing of being his parents. as with most kids, he doesn't always make it easy for us- but the moments when we see him make a right decision, or say something unexpectedly sweet, or create something that amazes us, fill us with joy and thankfulness for this sweet boy.
his birthday gift, a new bike, came a week early. we spent the weekend hanging out as a family and were joined for birthday dinner by some friends. the highlight of his birthday, and he might say of his life :), was a tractor ride given to him by one of our neighbors.
