The long-awaited day has arrived! (By him, not us!) Our oldest has finally turned thirteen!
We helped him wake up that morning with some creative pancakes!
In the evening, once Dad arrived home, we celebrated!
He received a few presents, but I think what he is relishing most is the fact that he has passed me in height (by two inches- 5' 8 1/2") and he has passed up his Dad in shoe size (size 11) and there is no end in sight!!
He is tall and lanky, but we couldn't ask for a better leader for our gang!!
