John often likes to boast to his mama of his triumphs at battle. In just one week recently, he killed a dragon, a shark, and a lion that were all trying to kill "our baby." John would not let them at her.
Or... like he said of a big, mean dog.... "it tried to kill us, but I cut off his head and he did not like that and he was sad."
John darling, I wish that the zoo outing we gifted you for your birthday turned out to be a much nicer day! It was a beautiful weather, a beautiful area, but the zoo was a really sad place for the most part... run down scattered facilities and poor, poor animals. But I did bring the birthday party in a bag- jelly bellies!- sent from Grandma and Grandpa so that part was upper fun, and seeing a few (albeit sad) animals was almost nice. Overall it was just great to be altogether and be with you, birthday boy.... You are such a joy, Son!

May this next year be a great year of growth in the joy and knowledge and love and courage of our Savior, Jesus Christ! Your mama and daddy love you oh! so! much!
