Evan is Eight!

The years seem to be slipping by so quickly. Evan turned 8 yesterday. He was upset that we were not able to celebrate his birthday with him all day. He was hardly deprived of a good time though. He has been at Mad Science camp all week. He got to dig through Owl throw up and piece together the skeleton of a rodent. What could be more fun? In the evening we attended VBS family night at church. There were many Baylor athletes there to help celebrate the sports theme. A new family favorite was in attendance: Mamadou! This time he brought along some friends. Poor Birthday boy had to eat dinner with a table full of talented college athletes. He had their undivided attention.
After he and Mamadou ate two burgers a piece, the guys headed to the nearest basketball goal. Mamadou gave Evan a few pointers!

I know Evan had a great day but he just couldn't admit it. We tried to convince him to use his imagination and pretend that all the people at Family Night were there to help him celebrate his birthday but his imagination just wouldn't take him there. He was set on having a pity party instead. The kid is worn out from late nights and incredibly busy days. Isn't summer suppose to be laid back and relaxing?

Happy birthday, Evan! Sorry I'm two days late with the greetings. I was in Kenya on your birthday! Now I am in the Congo, and it is really fun to see my friends and favorite places. Hope y'all are well!
