Celebrating Jordan’s 12th Birthday!

Jordan’s last pre-teen year – wow. The morning of Jordan’s birthday we sat at breakfast and asked Jordan what he wanted to do at the end of the day to celebrate his birthday. “Open presents and have cake,” he said. Sounds pretty obvious except for the fact that Jordan has NEVER asked for a birthday cake in his life. It had never crossed my mind! Thank you Ashley for cranking that out by the end of the day. Once we were all home (he was last), he got to do his presents, have some dinner, cake, and then have a movie evening.

Additionally, he’s been talking about going to Great Wolf Lodge for nearly a year now. When a great deal came up for home schooling families we jumped on it, celebrated his special day a couple weeks later, and headed to Grand Mound, WA for a family overnight mini-vacation.

Happy Birthday, Jordan! We love your quirky personality that always surprises us. Your sense of humor is amazing and your determination and faithfulness are so admirable. You are precious to us and our Heavenly Father.

It's my birthday!
