Link turns eight years old tomorrow.
This last Sunday he had his baptismal interview with the Bishop.
Monday was a party at Chuck E. Cheese.
We had a family party this afternoon, with cake and presents. It was simple stuff, much of it from thrift stores and Kid-to-Kid, but he was happy.
Tomorrow he goes to Cub Scouts for the first time.
Thursday is his first soccer game.
Friday the grandparents arrive.
Saturday is the baptism, which I’ll be performing.
Sunday he gets to sit on the stand next to the Bishop during Sacrament meeting.
I know it may not sound like a busy week for ME, but this is my SON we’re talking about here. I’m feeling a little anxious for him at every step of the way.
I’m also very, VERY grateful that I get to be a part of so much of this. Thank you, God, for convincing me that it was possible for me to work from home. And thank YOU, dear readers, for being part of that possibility. I love being a cartoonist, but lately most of why I love it is because I love my family MORE.
