My baby turned 7 last week. It was a simple, sweet gathering with some extended family, Star Wars, egg sandwiches, and ice cream cake. It was the last hurrah with family visiting from the West Coast, a sort of close to the busy Thanksgiving festivities. His birthday celebration, occurring right at Thanksgiving (occasionally the day of) is often a bit of an after thought. But he bears it well–likely because he knows he is never an afterthought. Such a fun loving, compassionate, witty little guy. Happy Birthday, Kale.
