Birthday, the movie
The alarm goes off at 6:40AM.
Time to eat the donuts.
Sing the song. Blow out the candles.
And since the older kids didn't have school today, back to bed.
The Good Doctor tried to shake Shoun a bit to wake him up but Shoun admonished him, "Stop it! I'm going back to bed after this."
Thankfully, he was a bit more awake for his birthday dinner and dessert.
And let me just say that this young man has come a long way.
Working at a farm really grew him up this summer. He discovered that he doesn't want to do manual labor for the rest of his life but he proved himself not only responsible but a hard worker no matter the weather or job assigned.
He is growing in character, learning to be a leader and not a follower, and is finding that building trust gives more freedom and more privileges.
He smiles more, laughs more, and communicates more.
We love you, Shoun!
