Eight years!

Henry turned eight today. Sniff. He has grown up so much during the last year which makes me very happy, but it's hard to see him get so big.

His (very kind and skilled) teacher had his entire class make him birthday cards which he brought home in a big manila envelope. Very sweet. We're taking him to Grover's for dinner so he can get a giant cheeseburger.

At the moment he's getting whupped by Lucy at Mario Cart. But she can't stop asking: "Why I'm not the oldest, Mama?" "Why I can't be big already? I hate being little."

Happy Birthday Henry! I was just thinking the same thing about Gus today -- for as great as it is to have an older kid, sometimes I miss the littler him.

Wow! I can't believe Henry is eight. I think the last time I saw him was about 4 years ago when you guys stayed with us in Cambridge. Time flies!
