Seven

7 years old…….how is that even possible? It’s funny how times stands still in a way and yet when you look back and photos you see the subtle changes and growth over the year’s. In some ways he still seems that lil guy, he doesn’t seem like he’s aged a bit, but then there are moments I’m just stunned at looking at him now.

The obsession that has consumed Ephram the last year has been 100% him, a love for NASCAR. He was drawn to it and in no time was dropping all these names that were unfamiliar to us. He started watching races and buying up NASCAR collectibles. He knew in no time NASCAR inside and out. He will watch for hours on end videos on You Tube and be able to spout off the History of races then and now. I’ve learned more stuff about NASCAR  from a 6 year old.

This past February we took Ephram to see the Daytona 500. He was so excited. He finally got a chance to meet his favorite driver, the #5 Kasey Kahne. He got him to sign his jacket that he wore last Halloween.  Earlier this year, he discovered a video detailing how to re-decorate your Hot Wheels cars in to your own NASCAR cars using White Out and Sharpie Markers. He’s made dozens of them and given them as gifts. A sweet gesture of a child.

Ephram has always been a kid with his own diverse interests. He never got into the normal things that boy’s his age got into. He never was drawn to the typical toys. NASCAR has become his one and only ‘toy’.

Ephram is now taking Guitar lessons and still involved with Irish Dance. He’ll be playing Little League again this spring. He’s a well rounded kiddo. He’s got some great friends and loves his friends and family. He has a giving heart and loves to make people laugh.

Always one to be a goofball and make faces..6
We celebrate his 7th year with a couple of friends going swimming with him and then a get together with family. He’ll have the NASCAR cake he wanted for his birthday and I suppose a few more car’s to add to his collection..but don’t tell him that! Happy Birthday Bubby! xoxo
