Our Boy is Five
Five years ago, Stacy and I awaited the birth of our son Rigby. Stacy championed through more than a day of labor. It was very fitting that he arrived on Labor Day.
And today, we followed and watched our little boy climb a mile-long trail with an elevation change of almost 500 feet at the Little River Canyon National Preserve in Alabama.
Oh, how time flies.
We shared a wonderful weekend with friends and family, celebrating Rigby's fifth birthday.
We had a Friday night party at our house with his friends and a black Spider-Man cake. We then had a Saturday afternoon party at our house with family and a red Spider-Man cake. We are so very fortunate to have such a loved little man.
Robert Fulgham said 20 years ago and this is a great quote that fits Rigby, "Be aware of wonder. Live a balanced life--learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some."
We love you, Rigby. You live your life already with character, responsibility and compassion for others.
