John Curtis is 7!

Life has been pretty overwhelming in our little world but I'm going to try to get caught up a little at a time.  On December 19th John Curtis turned 7.  The weekend before his birthday Taylor took him and two of his buddies to PrimeTime in Abilene for some birthday fun!

On his actual birthday, Taylor took him for donuts before school started.  Then he got to eat lunch with me in my classroom.  That evening Sophie had Nutcracker rehearsal it was just the three of us out for Chinese food.

Of course we had to have cake balls from Miss Lindy, his favorite!
This funny little boy sets the tone for my days!  His passion can take him (and me) from one extreme to the other in a matter of seconds.  He loves fiercely and loyally but hurts and feels disappointment just as deeply. We don't always know how to navigate those extremes but we are learning together and I pray his passion will be used for God's glory one day.   He is his own little man and we are so thankful he is a part of our family.

Love that precious little boy! When he came along 7 years ago, I was not sure what to do with a boy, but he owns my heart. I love that passion. He stretches and challenges those around him. He will do great things.
