happy birthday my boy


my favorite quote from the birthday weekend came after we purchased his balloon for the party. i tied it around his wrist until we could get to the car. he exclaimed, "mom, it is tied around my wrist!" and then, while looking into the distance contemplatively, "like the summer wind." nice, very nice.

How great is that statement? That's the kind of sense that we understand as children and that we lose as we grow up - but, oh, how true it is. What better expression of a birthday balloon? Happy Birthday, Larkin!!!

Like Fredrick, the mouse (you know that children's book, right?), he's a poet and doesn't know it. Glad y'all enjoyed the birthday!
