Happy Birthday Jack

1. Jack, sibs and cousins (like a typical 4 year old - Eric is mad because it's not his birthday and he's not getting the presents.)
2. Self-explanatory
3. Jack, Mary and Eric first thing this morning watching the first season of the Muppets DVD that Jack got for his birthday.

Take 1 of "Happy Birthday" -- my camera stopped before the song finished because the memory card was full.

Take 2 of "Happy Birthday" -- the von Trapps we are not!!

Today is Jack's 8th Birthday. Hard as it is to believe, I'm without words right now ... so, I'll let the video I put together do the talking. Many of you have already seen the video, for those of you who haven't - here is the link:

8 years of Jack's journey

We are having a birthday party for Jack this evening. I'll post pictures later.

What a slideshow. That made me cry! I am partial to the picture of him sitting in his classroom chair at the tumbleforms desk..I wonder why??!!
He is such a cutie, and such a strong boy! So glad he is in my life! Happy birthday you handsome guy!

Jack looks as though he enjoyed it...that's all that matters. I can't believe he is 8 now. He was the age Jacob is now when you and I "met"...weird.

Thinking of you often,

I'm glad Jack had a good birthday. I hope he continues to make progress with his back. I sure do enjoy checking in on him and seeing the pictures!
