Barrett turns 8

We had a great birthday yesterday. We all went up to the ski slope, Flint and I hung out in the lounge, Flint ate everything he could possible find on the floor. Peter skied for the first time, which was quite the adventure for David as he took 3 boys by himself down the slope.
After a day of skiing, we made pizzas and had a bunch of people over for cake and ice cream.
It's crazy to think that Barrett is now 8. It seems like just the other day we were so thankful for a healthy baby and how things could have gone so different if the dr. hadn't been right there on the floor. He's such a blessing, his kind, gentle spirit humbles me. We had friends over the other night and she said that she hopes her little boy is as kind as Barrett when he grows. The way he takes care of his little brothers is amazing. He got his first pocket knife for his birthday, and we prob. should have included a first aid kit, but he sure loves it.
