Dane is officially in the last single digit age and halfway to 18!! Let that sink in for a minute. I can't believe that he is already 9 years old!!!
He wanted to celebrate his birthday with a sleepover with 3 of his good buddies from school. Easiest birthday party that I've ever thrown. The boys entertained themselves the entire night. Yes, they stayed up all night long to my dismay. They played outside a great deal of time with nerf gun wars and whatever other crazy games they came up with. They watched movies and played video games and exchanged pokemon cards etc. The hardest part of the party was keeping Jace out of their hair. He wanted to be right there with them. Super fun night for Dane, he had no complaints and had the best time celebrating his birthday! On his actual birthday Kevin volunteered to be a watch dog at his school. First time Kevin has signed up, so Dane was overly excited. Kevin got to go to his classes and help in different ways and get on the loud speaker and announce who he was and that it was Dane's birthday. They both had a great time. I brought them lunch, and was planning on all of us eating together, but Dane's class had won an award and got to eat lunch in their classroom while watching a movie. The classroom is a bit small, so Jace and I decided to not stay after bringing them their food. Once he got home from school I took Dane to Target to let him spend his birthday money, it was burning a hole in his pocket. He picked Mo's for dinner that night, so we met his grandparents there for more celebrating. It was a great birthday for him!!
