With Chloe's surgery and recovery I completely forgot to post about another birthday at our house! Ryan is now a teenager!!!! We just had a small celebration for him on his birthday and we will do a larger party for him in a few weeks. We sang "Happy Birthday" to him and enjoyed some yummy cupcakes. He wanted pizza for his birthday meal so we ordered some delicious carry-outs.
Ryan is such a great kid. He is so sweet and kind (and quite a goof ball as you can see from the one photo above) . I am so proud of him and he has a heart of gold. He spends so much time volunteering for any cause that needs support. He has spent so much time lately collecting for the food pantry, playing with animals waiting for adoption, helping with school concessions at dances, working at pancake breakfasts, and he has volunteered to pass out water to runners in a 10K coming up next month. He is such a great big brother too. He is always playing with his siblings and never seems to tire of their company. We are so blessed to have him in our family!
