Nathan is 7!















Happy birthday to our sweet boy Nathan, who turns 7 today! We measured him this morning, which is a favorite tradition for the boys. Anya Rashi was puzzled by all the excitement about drawing a line on some wood in the basement, but was glad to tell Nathan, "Happy Cake!" this morning.

This morning Peter did some research to find out who in history shares Nathan's birthday. He was thrilled to find out that President James Buchanan, Peter and the Wolf composer Prokofiev, and William Shakespeare all share his birthday. (Nathan's middle name is William, so he was certain there's a direct link between him and Shakespeare!)

He gets to bring cupcakes to school today, and tonight we will celebrate with the dinner of Nathan's choice: pancakes and bacon. He will have a family party next weekend, so the birthday fun will keep on coming!

Nathan,
We love your energy and creativity, your inquisitive mind, your compassion for others, and your loopy sense of humor. You are a treasure from God in our lives, and we feel so blessed to be your parents. We can't wait to see what he has in store for your life . . . Happy birthday!
Love,
Dad, Mom, Aaron and Anya Rashi
