Happy Birthday Avery!

I have this nagging feeling that Avery will remember his 9th birthday in terms of "the year the Celtics won the World Championship" (is that what it's called? ..I know it's not the world series, or the superbowl...but I have no idea what the "big game" in basketball is called...) Anyway, I do know that the Celtics won it, and my son was there watching through the playoffs...ooo-ing and ahhh-ing alongside his father, pumping his fist, questioning the refs calls, hollering something about "fouls" towards the television...etc...

Avery had a great birthday - shooting hoops in the backyard with a few friends/cousins, celebrating with some ice cream cake, and then the "icing on the cake", the Garnett jersey.

He described this weekend as one that was "full of fun and full of hurt". He took a couple of sports-related spills this weekend (back ache from a see-saw incident, shoulder pain after running into a grill while trying to catch a football, scraped elbow while diving for a basketball, and booty contusion while trying out his new rip stick in the rain). Boys.


I can't believe he's nine.
