Tom Sawyer Turns 12 ~ We had a wonderful birthday celebration for Tom Sawyer. He decided to have a very small birthday party this year with just four boys invited. He just wanted to embrace calmness. We are all craving that around here. We kicked off his birthday with dry ice fun. We used long 1 1/2 inch diameter PVC pipe with an end cap. Then the boys added warm water, dry ice and food coloring. My dh supervised this fun activity.
The general theme of the party was Minecraft, but Tom Sawyer really only wanted Minecraft decorations.
Tom Sawyer loved the organic soda with the label that said "potion of healing". I think that was his favorite decoration of all! Our party favors were Mad Libs which were popular. It was a happy birthday for our boy!
The Special Olympics Qualifier ~ Tom Sawyer attended the qualifier for our county this past week. He did really well and performed his routine in front of a judge on all of the apparatuses. He got really nice scores and took a first place ribbon in five events for Level 1!
