This week we celebrated Kieran’s 16th birthday.
On Saturday, Big K had some friends over for Ethiopian food and a movie. This was the first time any of them had tasted Ethiopian dishes but they all enjoyed them.
The other Gowin kids decorated Kieran’s room with paper chains–they used a lot of green, I think, because his birthday is so close to St. Patrick’s Day. He also had dinner out at our favorite restaurant with a cow out front and then Skyped with a friend… somewhere.
It’s strange to think of having a 16-year-old in our house. We don’t have just “little kids” any more. We’ve turned a corner.
