8th birthday with friends

I cannot believe that my little boy is 8 years old. I know all moms say that as their kids grow but there is something about actually experiencing it that is a bit unreal. It is especially notable when they are among their friends. It is like a window into a different world. I don’t get tjat world AT ALL, but it is fun (though maybe a bit perplexing) to watch. He invited his entire class to his birthday party today and they had a great time swimming and being really silly…. I watched amazed. 8 years old wow!
