Nik, opening a card. I love that the other kids get excited too.
Can't you see the look of anticipation on his face?
He typically will read the cards first which really surprised me. Usually kids want to rip right into the package, skip the card. Not Nik. He wanted to savor every part of it.
That crazy smile that drives me nuts. Him and Reni do it. Must be a 10yo thing.
Another package from folks that we met at the Bulgarian Reunion this summer.
Nik, wondering what is in those packages. He would get so excited at each and every package opened. Just was very content and happy for a birthday boy.
Nik, reading some of the cards that were given to him.
I think Irina is excited about the journal.
Pencils are always quite useful around here. As you know, Nik draws all the time.
