Happy Birthday Captain. At seven you are quite the artist, your art teacher asked to buy one of your art works. I said no, I wanted it. You are the fastest runner in your class. You love reading and read prolifically, well thumbed books are Beast Quest, Zac Power, James and the Giant Peach and the Famous Five. Your favourite toys are Lego and Playmobil Top Agents. You can climb any tree, rope or pole like a monkey. I frequently have to reassure people as you wave to us from the top of a lamp post that you are fine. Your favourite foods are pizza, pink lady apples and those revolting cheese and bacon rolls from Baker's Delight. You still skip your way around a soccer field and daydream instead of following the ball, I will be so sad when you stop doing this. You love science club and fencing at school, skiing is another favourite. At school you still love to play BB's vs Fairy House and construct elaborate cubby houses out of sticks and stones. I love that your school allows you to do this. When you grow up you want to be a paleontologist or a policeman. You are going to marry Bronte. I hope you always have a Bronte in your life. Your Dad and I love your style, your Dad thinks you have an element of Ferris Bueller about you.
Sometimes I can see it!
Happy Birthday Captain!
