It is so cliche to say that time goes by so fast. I remember other moms telling me they had a six year old and I thought those kids are so old. I remember watching Jamon "play" on the floor with some baby toys and longing for the days when he would play with friends, ride his bike, play catch etc. Well, I blinked my eyes and now I have a six year old. I look at Jamon and often forget that he is only six years old. He is so responsible, kind-hearted and intelligent. What a blessing. When I was pregnant with him I vividly recall praying and pleading with Lord to give my son a tender spirit before the Lord. Jamon is an answer to my prayers.
For his birthday he wanted a fishing party so his other friends could learn how to cast. This past Spring and early Summer Jamon has been able to go on quite a few fishing trips. He's gone to Lava Lake, Diamond Lake and up the McKenzie River. It's funny how in the years past I always spent so much time and energy planning birthday parties, themes, games and favors etc. This year I literally did a simple invitation and food. And the kids played. It was the easiest and most fun birthday party. Who knew a mean game of Sharks & Minnows would be the highlight of a party.
