Jonathan and Lindsay got mighty big birthday gifts this year -- Jonathan got a motorcycle and Lindsay got a piano. This isn't the norm, but Jason and I were smart enough to give items we were getting anyway in place of the usual birthday hoopla. Jonathan had wanted one of those maniacal kid birthdays with a group of energetic boys in a noisy enclosed arcade area. We asked if he would rather have that or a motorcycle -- fortunately for us he chose the latter because Jason was buying the thing at some point either way.

Really he had a fabulous birthday with family friends out at Creekside. One of the coolest moments during his birthday weekend was when these neighborhood friends, who came out with us, gave him a brand new Nintendo DS game system. Jonathan had actually saved his money for months to buy his own. We convinced him he should purchase a refurbished one from Gamestop to save a few bucks. The warranty was 30 days and his lasted 31 days (needless to say, we won't be shopping at Gamestop anymore!) These three friends felt so bad for him that they all pitched in money and got him a new one (and they aren't cheap!) What incredible generosity these rough and tumble young boys showed -- pretty amazing.
