On April 16th, I got lucky.
It was my 7th birthday, we had no school, and I found a surprise delivery at my front door: my good friend, Danny! We played our hearts out at my house and then mom took us to a movie, followed by a drive through Taco Bell, which ended with lunch at the park!
Then, over my birthday weekend, we hosted a pizza party… the first family gathering at our house since summer!
Just like every birthday, I have lots to be thankful for…. mostly the presence and good health of my loving family, but I’m not mad about the presents I got either! I will surely become quite active with my new bike, golf clubs, smart basketball, and smart soccer ball; keep up with me if you can!
I’ve officially launched my soccer career. And let me tell you, I’ve got moves you’ve never seen!
Like at my first game, I leaned my upper body strangely far ahead of my feet (even though I’ve never run with that posture before) and then I clumsily fell forward every time I touched the ball. My fan club seemed confused, yet entertained, so I just kept running myself to the ground.
For game 2, I tried a different strategy: Staying upright. (Which worked, because I scored a goal!)
Lesson for the next game: Remembering that throw-ins on the soccer field are not like jump shots on the basketball court.

Despite forgetting to leave out carrots, the Easter Bunny was gracious enough to pay us a visit anyway, and left behind chocolates, toys, movies, and baskets full of happiness.
That’s what you call classy, thoughtful, and selfless… spreading goodness to others without needing to chase a dangled carrot.
The world needs more Easter Bunnies.
