He is 6 years old...

BW turned 6 years old on Monday. Where did all that time went by way to fast for me. We had his birthday party Saturday and he had so much fun. He had a lego cake and a lego pinata both made by me that he was just so excited about. Of course he had presents too. He ended up with some money so I decided I would let him go do some shopping. So our first stop was Toys R Us, they sent him a 3 dollar gift card in the mail for his birthday (he is part of the kids club they have). We went in and he picked out what he wanted, went up to the register to pay for it and he got a birthday hat and balloon. I thought that was so nice of them to recognize him that way. So after a day of shopping we went to the kids draft night for basketball and got to meet their coaches and team players. I let the kids decide what they want for their birthday dinner and BW decided he wanted corn dogs, chips and dip. He had a wonderful day.

I love this picture of Sissy reading him his birthday sweet!

What we have been doing

We have had so much going on and I guess it will be this way till the holidays are over.

I have signed the kids up for upward basketball and they are super excited about getting to play. We have had our evaluations and now we are just waiting on practices to start. They are having a draft night in 2 weeks and we are excited to meet their coaches and have some fun.

In 2 weeks it will be my BW's 6th birthday, wow, where did that time go. He of course is very excited and wants everything. I think he has decided he wants to have a lego party. He has really gotten into legos recently. I love to watch him build these because he gets so into it and serious about it.

On the otherhand we had to go to the eye doctor last week and I was shocked at the results. We knew there was a chance he would need glasses but I wasnt really prepared for the diagnosis. The doctor said he was 3 times as farsighted as he should be at this age and has astigmatism in both eyes. I was so shocked, and after that wore off I could just cry. I thought how could he have had such a hard time seeing and I the mom not know it. So doing my research of course found out that he was probably born with this so the blurry vision is all that he has known. I felt a little better about it and now I just want to get him his glasses so he will see better. He was so excited he got to pick out his frames, some light blue ones (his favorite color) and he looks so cute in them. I cant wait to pick them up and you know I will have to post a picture of him. He has just been worried that people will laugh at him so we are having to really encourage him.

Hope you are all having a good week!
