Our lives are full of milestones, and with nine children, the milestones are numerous and frequent. There are a lot of firsts though and they mostly happen for the oldest of the nine. This one is no exception. For as many years as any of our children can remember, we celebrate birthdays with breakfast in bed on the celebrate plate. For Jakob's birthday, I'm sure it would have not been met with excitement if we would have shown up at his dorm room with breakfast in hand, singing "happy birthday" in our pjs!Instead we put together a care package for him that was full of birthday themed treats and messages from each of his siblings. Stocking his dorm shelves with junk has to be just as good as breakfast in bed right?
Willa and I dropped it off to him before his first class and then came back to pick him up for breakfast before his next one.
