This poor kid was DESPERATE to be seven. Not sure what is so special about seven, but he really wanted to be seven. So much so that the day he turned seven he told someone he was seven and a half. Maybe it's eight he wants to be and seven is just a stepping stone. Oh to be in the head of a child some days. As usual, we had a very small celebration here at home. My parents stopped by on their way to my sister's house in Wyoming . It was nice that they were able to be here for his birthday.
