Gregory's Birthday, 8 is Great!

Gregory turned eight this month, and it's so weird to think that my baby boy is this old! Gregory has just become the best boy. He is so responsible and reasonable! He has always been a great boy, but it is amazing to watch Gregory grow up and become so incredible, caring, and an understanding person. He can now make rash decisions and understands why we don't get everything we want, and the importance of sacrifice, feeling the Holy Ghost on his own and developing his own testimony. He comprehends that we make choices that will better our lives and that bad decisions will take us down a different path. He has a great desire to do what is right, make decisions that positively affects others as well as himself, and wants everyone around him to be happy. Gregory is a fun boy. He is excited about life, and wants to make memories and have fun with his family and friends. Everyone loves Gregory. He has a great ability to just "fit in" and make friends as we have travelled and moved around the world. Gregory has been such a good sport about everything, and has been my rock for the last eight years. Gregory, we love you, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Stan was in charge of decorating and he did a GREAT job! I loved how beautiful it all turned out.

 Gregory invited all the boys from his school class and from his soccer team. We had a great turn out and the boys had a great time together. We had a party at our home in Sydney. We ate cake and ice cream and opened up presents before heading to the Darling Harbour laser tag centre. It was an adventure getting the boys to and from laser tag, but it was fun too. The boys really loved playing laser tag, and I know Gregory and George had a good time. We had Stan and Chris (Gregory's soccer coach) play as well so there was one adult leader on each team. Overall, it was a great day!
