Tyson turns 7!

It's been almost 2 months and it still seems crazy that Tyson is 7.  He looks taller and more grown up every day.

I told Tyson that I will do everything I can to eat lunch with him at school on his birthday every year. So far I'm 2 for 2. What a goofball. And may I say, first graders are SO different than Kindergartners! Apparently the ability to read turns their lunch conversations into totally different topics ;)
Tyson wanted his party to be at Chuck E Cheese again. Almost the entire family made it, and he had a good showing of friends too!

Neighbor/ best bud Tristan. I promise Tyson was having fun ;)

An example of how kind hearted Tyson is. He had a Thor cake, which was his FIFTH choice at the bakery. We ordered his cake ahead of time, and they still couldn't get the first FOUR decorating kits that he picked. Seriously?? Instead of being mad/ annoyed, he insisted he was happy with it, even though he's never seen Thor movies. Sweet kid.

Tyson got a TON of Legos again. There have been lots of sessions similar to this putting them together. Now we just need some way to store them... our dining room is currently lego land.

This was unexpected and very sweet. Caleb and Tyson are 3 months apart and are generally inseparable when they're together, but we caught Caleb and Hailey playing together for a bit. They got along great and we got a kick out of them playing together.

Tyson is such a sweet kid. He's doing SO well in school, and makes us proud in so many ways. He's reading above a 1st grade level and got a reading award for the 1st semester this year.  His teacher tells us that he just wants to stay busy learning all day :)  HAPPY BIRTHDAY TYSON!!!
