Someone's Birthday Today!

Today is my youngest child's birthday. P is now 10 years old today! How exciting. My son was so excited for his special day to come, afterall he explains " I waited all year Mama"!

We all agreed to day would be P's day. We are going out to get some books at the library and then out to McDonalds for lunch (one of his favorite places). Then it is home for a Birthday Lapbook ~ yup, a birthday lapbook~ here is ours that we plan to use today (older brother plans to do it too for his date for his birthday).

Here is where I purchase many of my lapbooks:http://www.handsofachild.com/shop/ note, that as of yesterday HOAC is having a 35% discount on their Kits. May be a great time to take advantage of one, if you have not tried them before~
