Happy Birthday Elijah

A few days late because of internet difficulties, but a birthday message nonetheless. Dear 7 year old boy we love you. You keep us laughing, thinking, listening and loving daily. We are amazed at all of the ways you've grown this year. You have fallen in love with nature in whole new ways. You would spend every spare minute outside- digging in the dirt, finding rocks, uncovering bugs, inspecting leaves, searching for spiders, climbing, riding your bike and having a great time. We started homeschooling your this year and it has gone very well so far. You are learning lots- improving things that were really difficult for you at school and enjoying learning about things that interest you. We've done a unit on space, one on habitats and we're about to start simple machines.

Your brothers love you and you show such patience with them much of the time. We love you Elijah and can't wait to see who you become as a 7 year old.

Simile Metaphor Collection

Elijah after running: My heart is beating like a coconut rolling down a hill.
Elijah on urination: Pee is like horses galloping out of the gate. Once they get started you just can't stop them.
Elijah: If school were a human I'd give it a wedgie.
Elijah: I am like a hot rod and I just want to be a plain old Ford
Elijah on the fruits of the spirit: I've got them all covered except self-control. Its like a tiny green tomato and the rest are all big ripe ones. Especially love. Its like the biggest tomato we saw in the garden tonight.
