I was waiting to share this until I had his 11 year old photo with his blocks... but here we are 2 weeks later and still haven't taken it. So instead of putting this off I'll just add that photo later.
We had a busy birthday weekend. His birthday fell on a Sunday this year, but he had a basketball tournament that day so we wanted to start the celebration earlier. Saturday he had a chess tournament all day, so we celebrated Saturday evening as a family. We decorated the house while he was at chess.
