Jethro’s Party

So on Friday, Jethro finally got a birthday party.  Emphasis on the finally.  His birthday is July 14, so we were a bit late.  In fact, I had Brett help me write the invitation, and this is what he wrote:
For those of you who (like me) don’t speak German, it says, “Jethro is 9!  Actually that happened a long time ago, but he has a lot a patience, and didn’t forget that we promised him a party.”
It’s true.  I did want him to have a party with friends from school, I felt like it was important, but for whatever reason it kept getting put off.  So anyhow it finally worked out. 
When the boys were arriving, they watched a couple videos on youtube.  Jethro picked this one, and his friend Lamin picked this one
Then we all went to the park and the boys played games.  They played flag tag and keep-away and things like that.
Then we sang Happy Birthday (in English, German, and supposedly Chinese, but I’m doubtful it’s even very close to Chinese).
And Jethro opened his presents.
Then when the fire was roaring, we all roasted our wursts, and some marshmallows, and ate cake.  It was a good time.  I think all the boys enjoyed it.  I’m sooo glad that Brett came home early and pretty much ran the show while I (feel like I)  ran back and forth between the house and the park.
Happy –late- birthday Jethro!
And here are some pictures I took of Jethro the other day.  I love this kid!
