I burnt up the edges of paper and then wrote the message:
"Dear So-and-So, We are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted as a guest to Micah Barnett's Harry Potter birthday party. Students will be required to attend Saturday, February 25th, 1:30-3:00. All students must bring: 1. One wizard's wand, 2. An owl or a cat or a toad. Sincerely, Albus P.W.B. Dumbledore and Minerva McGonagall"Micah woke up Monday, which just so happened to be President's Day, therefore a day off school and work! Look at that happy face. So sweet.
Here are some things that make our Micah special:
*He is sympathetic with his friends and siblings when they are sad or hurt
*He is reading the Harry Potter series for the second time through! He loves it and would be happy to spend hours on his bed with his book.
*Micah is working on a notebook full of his own Super Mario World
*He enjoys going to our back field to explore and help collect "stuff" with Colin: an old couch, used construction supplies...you name it!
*He likes to tease his parents about the fact that he has a crush on someone. In turn, Chad loves to tease him about the Jazz's NuSkin dancers when they go to games.
*He enjoys playing with boys as well as girls and has some nice friends
*He is in the great position in our family so that he and Colin have fun playing and discovering together, but he can also have a great time with his younger sisters playing
*He is really becoming responsible with practicing piano on his own. Most times, I don't even have to tell him he needs to do it, he'll go down on his own and try his best.
*He loves participating in Cub Scouts
*At bedtime, he will tell his parents the most heartfelt "I love you" in the world. Then he always wants a genuine hug. (And perhaps a kiss.)
*He is proud to invite his friends to church and has done so on numerous occasions.
We love you Micah, and are so glad you are ours.
