Happy 7th Birthday to our son, our firstborn, our Will!

I interviewed him tonight as I tucked him into bed, so we could remember what his favorites were on his first day of 7:

Favorite food: pizza [shrimp has been usurped! Sushi is a close 2nd]
Favorite snack: frozen fruit (pineapple, peaches, mango, & strawberries)
Favorite song: "Dynamite" by Taio Cruz
Favorite sport: tackle football [he is SO excited to start, even though he rocked t-ball this spring]
Favorite sports star: Kyle Busch
Favorite subject: math [he is amazing!]
Favorite show: Wild Kratts
Favorite movie: tie b/t Cars 2 & Kung Fu Panda 2
Favorite toy: tie b/t wooden Thomas trains [the love affair has continued since before his 2nd bday! I *love* that he's held onto this innocence!] and Hotwheels
Favorite game: Monopoly [he(we) has(have) 5 different versions: traditional, wooden box set, Cars 2, the iPod app, & construct-your-own-board]
Obsessed with: money - spending & counting ad nauseam
Future job: train engineer [herpetology is still a passion, but may be slipping to hobby status]
His teachers say: he's the sweetest, kindest, most well-mannered boy they have ever met [bursting with pride, but less than ecstatic that he saves up all his whining & picking w/ his sister *just for me* :-P]
Favorite number: 7 [I thought he'd say 18 for Kyle Busch or 19 for his t-ball number, but he said, "7, b/c I'm 7! Next year, my favorite will be 8." :-)]

We had his birthday party this morning at the Flint RiverQuarium, and it was wonderful:

["I already know everything about snakes!" :-D]

  3. Fun Day...and cool!
