Birthdays are fun!!!

Today Zeri turns 14 - he picked a time, because we really don't know what time he was born - so at about that time (we had a bit of delay) we had the requested cinnamon rolls for breakfast, put the candles on the cake and sang happy birthday! Of course, the presents were first and a huge hit. Thank goodness for knowing what really appeals to him!

We head out for our fingerprinting appointment (kind of a bummer to be doing this on his birthday rather than being at home - a few hours in the van doesn't really appeal to anyone) and to top it off then we are going to an Ethiopian restaurant - bringing the cake with as that is where he would like to do it!!! That redeemed the day in his eyes, plus the knowledge that getting this done is a big step to getting this adoption completed! So, the consensus ended up being that this is a good way to spend a birthday! LOL!

I am so proud of this young man, all he has been through and all that he has accomplished. He is amazing. And to top it off, after really seeing no progress in reading for quite a while, suddenly it is clicking and he is really reading fairly well!!!! The new things he is learning are sticking! I am just so pleased for him as it has been a long road. Perhaps it is also just the time learning English or whatever, but I will take it. And his vocabulary is growing by huge leaps and bounds! Amazing.

Well, the remote control cars are racing around, and we are getting things ready to go for our trip, so I had better run, just wanted to honor the young man's birthday!
