The boy at seven

So this one turned 7 on Friday, 7! Time really does fly. His day was super busy which is why he looks a bit worn out in the photo. He was up at 5.45 overly excited and he opened all his toys (he loved everything!) It was the last day of term and also his school church performance. His teacher told me that he had volunteered to be a narrator which seems so far away from the boy who last month was too nervous to even audition for the Christmas play to be true. He hasn't even had an ounce of nervousness and he got up and read his line beautifully. Who is this boy? Maybe it's his seven year cycle giving him a renewed confidence or maybe he was more comfortable after enjoying all four school performances that he thought he'd give it a go. Who cares, he did it and I think the experience will stick with him. After school he asked how many invisible gold stars I'd give him which was something I used to do as a reward when he was little and I said the whole sheet. This made him be with pride.
A quick trip to his dad's to open some more presents straight from school was tucked in before dinner with 14 members of our family.

“Give me a child until he is 7 and I will show you the man" Aristotle. If this quote is to be believed I think Logan is set to be one of the kindest, considerate, funniest men I know. He loves so many things from Marvel to Harry Potter (well he is my child) and he is such a good brother I know he'll make a fantastic adult. I'm unsure we'll be able to afford to feed a teenage Logan but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it
