So Riggs is 12 now....
and we have the Instagram birthday shout outs to prove it.....
I see quite a bit of his back these days...as he leaves....always going off to do something with someone.....and even if we are all together he walks ahead...sure of where he is going...no long at my side for guidance...or behind me for my lead....
You have to celebrate on your REAL no matter what! SO today we celebrated Riggs's Real birthday on his Real Birthday! He chose Hometown Pizza with his buddies that could come!
We opened presents ......
But we had a great day! She loves all her friends in the class so very much!

The fire truck was there to hose the kids off...but it mud was caked on and even after bath number one...we found traces of mud in ears!
Lila ray would only do it with me...so I could not take pics of her while I was rolling in the mud myself...hoping the mighty titans got one I can buy of her doing it!

After a FULL day...Goshen door decorating...a reception I hosted at Goshen, a Kindergarten zoo trip..I picked Riggs up from school and he and I headed to Lexington for a track meet at Tates Creek High School. He has very few friends on the track team and today not one of them were there. He hung with me...we sat in the bleachers...as the sun set...under a blanket. He was tired from the week...I was too. We both just wanted to go home...but we left that unsaid. Jeremy was on first call but surprised us and showed up. Riggs usually takes a potassium pill before he runs and when I left the house that morning I did not grab them. It hit him that he didn't take it and he freaked out a bit...he was afraid he would cramp up on his run. I felt terrible. I try so hard to juggle the 6 of us...but sometimes I drop the ball...even with my very best efforts. I suggested a melt away tylenol that we told him was a potassium pill...mind over matter....and it worked like a charm.
Riggs, when you read this later in life....just know I love you..sorry to trick you but it worked.
We gathered our stuff and headed to the car....stopped by Wendy's for nuggets and Starbucks for a Vanilla bean frap....he so deserved it! We headed back to Louisville and at midnight when it was officially his birthday I cranked the music and flashed the lights and beeped the horn! Riggs was officially 12! We were bone tired but together ringing in his birthday!
