Alex turned 12 this week.
We spent the evening tonight celebrating his birthday with lots of family and a few friends.

Alex LOVES baseball cards.
He is a big collector.
So, this year, he wanted a Baseball Themed Party.

We couldn't find any invitations that we loved, so we made our own.
We took unopened boxes of Cracker Jacks, attached his party info to the back, stuck on address labels and mailed them.

Here are a couple of pictures from the party...

Today is Alex's first day of school.
First day of 6th Grade.

I thought I would be a little stressed when he reached Middle School.
But I'm not at all.

I'm so excited for him.
He is so ready to move on to this next phase of life.

He is a leader.
He makes good choices.
He puts a lot of thought into who he surrounds himself with.
He has a big heart and cares about others.
He really is ready.

Alex- You are such an amazing kid! You were created with a purpose and you were made to change your world. I love you so much and I'm so proud of you. Your mission this year hasn't changed... {Love God, Love Others, Go Tell}. I have know doubt that you can do it!
