You love these pictures because they make you think of all the fun you are having right now.
We found out that your best bud, X, is not leaving right after the school year ends, but that you have a couple of weeks to enjoy summer break together. I even let you go with X and his mom to a movie - without me. That was a big step, you know. I don't know her all that well, but she is a neighbor and I knew the time is rapidly approaching where I am not automatically included in invitations to birthday parties and outings, because you are no longer a baby; and an outing without me with someone I somewhat know is better than someone I don't know at all. You are officially a kid. A big, little boy.
