Tomorrow is David’s birthday party.
A whole bunch of 6, 7, and 8 year olds coming to my house, most of whom will then spend the night. I’m not sure I’m ready. Wait, I know I’m not ready. Thankfully I have a team of workers on hand.
One of the very best things about our family is the way the children serve each other. They have true hearts of love and celebration for their siblings. I’m not on my own for this Birthday Bash. Oh no, I have Joshua and Daniel on board.
See how helpful they are? Ready to point the way.
Joshua has been planning all week, during his free time, for David’s party. As a very busy (and also fighting off a cold) high school freshman, this is quite a gift. He’s got the schedule organized, the clues written and events planned.
“Your job, Mom,” he told me, “is to have a prize at the end of my treasure hunt and food for the kids.”
“Um, a prize? What kind?” I’m easily overwhelmed.
“Don’t worry,” Joshua reassured me, “party favors will work. It doesn’t have to be fancy.”
Whew! See how well I’m cared for. Joshua even has a friend hired to work with him (and Daniel) during the party.
Maybe some Old Navy party favors?
What a blessing!!
Now to create some party favor bags, figure out food for the party, get ready for co-op tomorrow, and finish cleaning the house. It’s a good thing it’s only 8:45 pm.
Plenty of time left in the evening. :snort:
