Ridge helped to plan his 8th birthday party. He was so excited to welcome his friends to our home. He helped to design the card on the computer, had a Shel Silverstein poem that he wanted to put in there called "Invitation" and then Pokemon characters decorating the cover and inside since the Pokemon trading craze was the main event. I think the boys had more fun playing games outside with Eric but the cards went over well enough. We bought each boy a card booster pack and supplied them with trading card binder pages. Ridge went through his collection and chose a couple special cards from his collection for each guest and put them in the binder pages. He was pretty cute about getting everything ready. When I was going over the party agenda with him he said,
"Oh mom, I already did a 3 page power point presentation about the schedule for the party."
And then he showed it to me. He had an introduction page, a list of 9 items on the second slide and the last slide was "10. Have fun!" written in big letters. I'm trying to remember when I learned about power point.
It was all a very Ridge kind of celebration. How blessed we are to be this boy's parents.
