Happy 8th Birthday, Andrew!

Our beloved second son celebrated his eighth birthday today.

He and his older brother purchased (with previous gift money) a fancy “Ninjago” (Ninja + Lego) ship called “Destiny’s Bounty” and we agreed to put it on a cake for Andrew’s birthday.  It turned out great!

Here’s a photo of the cake with two candles (whose numeric values add up to eight. Yes, we are a nerdy crew here):

To mark the occasion, in addition to receiving a few store-bought gifts, Andrew collaborated with my wife to make a homemade Ninjago shirt.  His brother did the same, and both proudly donned the shirts once they were ready today:

As much as ever, we are grateful for this sometimes-quiet, often thoughtful, and frequently in-his-own-happy-place contemplative son of ours.  May the Lord continue to bless him and use him as a blessing in the lives of others in the coming year.
