Happy 21st Birthday, Christopher!
I'm certain younger mothers began to roll their eyes when they hear it one more time. The sentence we whose children have grown up tend to mumble quite often. "Where did the years go?" But it is oh so true... it seems one day I had a blond little two year old and then a lanky thirteen year old and now a twenty-one year old young man!
Since cash is tight right now, all he asked from us for his birthday was to have a few of his best friends come home with him over the weekend for an old fashioned LAN party (with all their computers linked together). I heard laughter until the early morning hours and when I awoke this morning, nearly tripped over old Nintendo 65 cables and games. I haven't seen them in years. No wonder the guys were all laughing. :)
Good times and good friends, who could ask for more than that? Well, perhaps good grades in the upcoming finals. Except for Christopher (who stayed here last night), they made their way back to campus and early morning classes... with me yawning even though I was in bed by 11:00! Such is life when you are twenty-one.
Picture: Christopher and his honey, Miss M, who also turns twenty-one soon.
