I just realized that I never put up any pictures from Sam's birthday. They are few, he's wearing swim clothes and my camera dies at the end, never to recover, yet, I will post them to prove that he did indeed turn 11 at the end of July.Sam and his gifts.
A West Virginia bird guide.
A book that he had been asking for.
An airsoft gun that he also had been asking for. It comes with plastic pellets that it shoots. The neighborhood boys have wars around our house with these guns (wearing protective eye-gear, of course).
