It is so hard to believe that our Jackson Cash is six years old!!!!!! Where has the time gone?
We had a great time celebrating Jackson’s birthday this year out in Texas while Jason went to class. Jason completed his next to last week long class last week for his doctoral degree. Jackson and I traveled with Jason for his very first class when Jackson turned four. Last year was a very hard birthday year for Jackson. We celebrated before Jason left, but the only person he wanted on his actual birthday was Jason. It made for a very sad day for Jackson last year (and it didn’t help that the twins were completely jealous of his special day and went out of their way to make Jackson miserable). So, this year, Jason made it a priority to have Jackson come out to Texas to be with him on his birthday. Jason was in class for 9 1/2 hours that day, but we still got to see him for lunch and then when he finished up class at 6:30. For that, Jackson was grateful!
Jason, Abby Kate, Jackson, and I flew out to Abilene, Texas on Sunday. Joshua had All-Star’s baseball practice each night, so he stayed back with a family friend and went to VBS each day. We had a great time out in Abilene and flew back home to Joshua on Wednesday (Jason had class until Friday and arrived home around 10:00pm).
Abby Kate, Jackson, and I had fun while Jason went to class each day. We went swimming, spent some time in Target, played at the mall, did a little browsing at the mall, saw “The Croods” at the movie theater, went go-cart riding, visited the Abilene Zoo, played at the local park, and enjoyed lunch and dinner each day with Jason. The most important part of our stay was that we were able to celebrate Jackson’s birthday with Jason. We ate dinner at Chili’s and Jackson enjoyed his “birthday cake” after dinner. We had a great time in Texas, but we are most looking forward to returning next year and watching Jason get his doctorate.
