Happy Birthday Alex!

Today is Alex’s 23rd Birthday.

Since his birthday is so close to Christmas, we have celebrated his Half Birthday – June 13th – since he was two.  For a while when he was little he wanted to add a year to his age every six months.

He’s finishing his degree at Cal Baptist and then will be loose in the “real world.”

He’s a good guy and we are very proud of  him.  We will be seeing him next week when he is home for Christmas.

Happy birthday!

    Wow! From my vantage point, a year every six months just seems dizzying. And frighteningly close to reality. mark

    Tell Alex Happy Birthday from his “Hoosier” Family!!!! I like the half-birthday idea. I will have to let Krista’s mom know about that. Her birthday is on Dec. 20 and she does not like it being so close to Christmas time.

    The “half Birthday” has worked really well for him. We started when he was so little he didn’t even realize it. The weather is warm in June so you can have a fun outside party and his birthday didn’t get mixed in with Christmas.

    When he was about 7 or 8 so we gave him a choice to continue or to celebrate on his actual birth date. He chose the half date so we have done that ever since. He got over thinking he’d aged a year every six months. I still feel that way about myself sometimes . . . but that is a whole different story.
