Austin turned 8 years old this month, which is very hard for me to believe! It seems only yesterday that he was a tiny little guy riding around in a Baby Bjorn front pack. Now he’s almost too heavy for me to carry! We celebrated Austin’s big day with a birthday party at our house. The guests included his friends from school, favorite college students from BEST Club, our co-workers, and friends from church. We invited people to the party only a few days before the event so we weren’t expecting very many people to be able to come, but our house ended up being full of wonderful friends who came to celebrate with us. I made Japanese curry rice and a Star Wars-theme birthday cake. Here are some photos of the event.
