Sam had his birthday last week! He is a big six year old now. He has celebrated several siblings' birthdays since his homecoming, and he fully embraced his special day. It was all things Buzz and Woody for this guy. He really liked being the birthday boy.
In other exciting news, Sam also started school last week. I attended with him initially, but he quickly adapted to the routine. He was also very excited to ride the school bus. Every afternoon when he is finished his lunch, he tells me "Come on! Come on! It's coming! The bus! It's coming!". He is charming everyone who works with him.
Sam's casts will be coming off in 2 weeks, and then he will get his new braces. The best part about that is SHOES! This little boy desperately wants to wear shoes, and I can't wait to get him his first real pair!
Sam is such a blessing. I was overcome with emotion on his birthday, thinking how different all our lives are this year! He had no idea last year we were even coming back to bring him home. So thankful for the privilege of being his mom.
