On Turning Seven

Mom: You woke up and suddenly you were seven! Did anything feel different?

Grady Lee: I was bigger!
Mom: What was your favorite part of your 7th birthday?

Grady Lee: Going to the pool because it's my favorite place to be in the summer and I love to dive for my dive sticks.
Mom: You have some more birthday fun coming up with family and friends. What are you excited about?

Grady Lee: To see my family that lives far away and to go to Monkey Joe's.
Mom: If you could go anywhere you wanted to this year while you are seven, where would you want to go?

Grady Lee: I would want to go to Chicago because I want to see the city where I was born and the house I lived in when I was a baby. I've been asking so many times to visit there, you know.
Mom: If I said you didn't have to eat a certain food that you don't like for this entire year, what food would you choose?

Grady Lee: [With shouting] Any kind of potato!
Mom: What is something you're hoping to learn or do in school this year?

Grady Lee: To learn to be a better reader in second grade.

Mom: What are you hoping to work at or become better at this year before you turn eight?

Grady Lee: Soccer! I want to be a good passer and dribbler who gets assists for his team mates.

  1. This is so precious! Hope that Grady Lee had an AWESOME 7th birthday! (Sure looks like it from the pics!) I think 7 was the first year that the number seemed SO big to me...and now each year I think the same thing!! Also, I had to laugh at his wanting to go to Chicago...our kids ask a LOT about going back for a visit, even the ones who were born here want to see the other place we lived for a long time!
