Will at NINE!

Will turned NINE years old this Tuesday! NINE. I love his amazing heart, how perceptive he is re: others' feelings, and how much team spirit he has for whatever he's involved with.

Grandma & Grandpa set him up just right for school:

And we went to lunch on Tuesday with Will's BFF from school & his family to Will's current favorite restaurant, Phoenicia. (DELISH shawarma, kibbe, cucumber salad, bulgar pilaf, Athenian pasta salad, pita, and the MOST AMAZING cheese puff that I don't even have words to describe... Not to mention gelato & baklava desserts to blow your mind!)
