This past week, we celebrated Paul’s 12th birthday. He jokingly tells me that this will be my last year of sanity.(next year he’ll be 13!) We had somewhat of a low key celebration with family and a few neighborhood kids coming by for cake and icecream. The crowning gift this year was a remote control helicopter. It’s that little blurp in yellow you can see in the pictures. Paul has been very interested in flight for a couple of years now. He’s done a lot of studying on his own, and definitely knows more about flight than I do. His dream is to be a pilot when he gets older. For now, he’s getting lots of practice flying the friendly skies of our living room and beyond.
