This year was their first "big" birthday party. They celebrated with school friends at the ATA Karate Club that they are members of. The party was a huge success and fun was had by all. It was so nice to see the kids and some of their friends outside of the school building and their uniforms having fun. It was a pretty good size crowd too... 19 kids!! The kids were so spoiled, their master teachers played games, told stories, gave a lesson and they had pizza and cake! Who could ask for more?
So this year we are officially big kids. Not that it means they will be responsible for their own needs, never sleep in my bed or solve their own problems... but hey, this is a milestone in my opinion. Most importantly, I have to keep reminding myself to not sweat the small stuff and to relax and enjoy parenthood. As fast as these 6 years have flown by, they will be in college before I know it. I always pride myself in trying to do the best for my kids; their birthday is just another chance to renew that commitment!! I love you two... always!
The Party Crew.. well most of them at least!
