Man I must be getting old...my little Tanner is 9!
Tanner was treated pretty special for his birthday. Dad came to school and brought McDonald's for lunch, Mom brought donuts to his class with a balloon (we bought 2 but one flew away in the parking lot), and then after school we went to the trampoline park and met his friend Cole's family there for a bouncy good time! Tanner picked homemade pizza for dinner, and he wanted an ice cream cake for dessert. We invited the Mackays over to enjoy dessert and sing a bday song. His birthday presents were an electric scooter, bowling shoes, and $25 cash to spend on whatever he wants. His friends also gave him some little gifts.
Tanner is such a special boy - even though he is a big tease! He loves his little sister and she loves him so much. He is such a great reader and is reading 5th grade level books. It has been tricky finding chapter books that he loves, but he found some books about mythology that he likes and he also likes Fudge-mania, and Wayside school. Tanner is a great little pianist even though he complains a lot. He loves to play video games, especially Minecraft. He is getting to be a really good roller blader and is really enjoying listening to music (especially the Frozen songs) on his ipod. Tanner is making some good friends, and is a good student. He got his Wolf scout and is excited to be moving on to Bears. Tanner is such a blessing in our family - what would we do without him?
