Today is Ry's ninth birthday! He's what is nicely known as "a spirited child." He has a mind of his own and a plan that only he knows and follows. Some days, I wish he would clue me in on his plan. He gives me gray hair and wrinkles. I worry. worry. worry about him...BUT...he makes us laugh, comes up with the most interesting facts about just about anything, is tender and caring and compassionate about his friends (maybe not his brother so much). He gives great hugs and knows just the right time to sit next to you for a cuddle. He's a kid that loves his birthday...as we have now been celebrating for a full five days in some fashion or another!
Happy Birthday Big Ry! We love you tons!
