And a milestone birthday it is at that! We are now officially parents of a teenager.... wow.
He was a bit disappointed when he woke up yesterday morning and .... didn't feel any different. No wiser, no more distinguished. Just Tim. I remember feeling the same disappointment on my 13th birthday. Somehow it seemed there should be some way to instantly tell... hey, that kid is 13 now.
He had a good day anyway. It's been a very busy week around here, so I didn't even get a chance to do birthday shopping til the afternoon of his actual birthday. I knew what I was getting him, just didn't get to the stores. I did supply teach in Tim's class on his birthday, so at least I got to spend lots of time with him. And we brought cupcakes.
Here he is with his favourite gift. Now if he could only play it....
He also got a pocketknife and a new Monopoly game. It's pretty neat.
Supply teaching for 2 days = no time to bake = Dairy Queen ice cream cake. Good thing we don't buy those every day! Very yummy, but not cheap!
Wow, those candles throw off a lot of light! Quick, blow them out before the ice cream melts!!
