When You're 15....................






I'm sure this isn't as crazy to you as it is to me, but, Forrest turned 15 on Wednesday! he's old enough to get his permit now! We threw a little surprise party for him with help from our friends Sarah and Andy. Forrest went to work with Mike for the day which made it easier. The boys made a banner for him with dragons and blue hair. (Forrest dyed his hair blue) Then we set up a big bonfire and made luminaries to light the way. For dinner, chickpea spinach curry and Sarah made a super yummy cake for dessert. He was indeed surprised. The stars were glorious, even shooting stars! The fire was roasty toasty! We didn't even realize temps fell below freezing until we tried to put out the fire with the hose...Frozen! We gave him a book light and S&A gave him a hatchet. Can you guess which was his favorite? He is so excited about this hatchet! I'm sure it has something to do with this book, one of his favorites! Sarah made a little blade pouch that goes on his belt. I actually had to tell him to take it off in the house! Do you think he would have gotten this gift if we still lived in Suburban Massachusetts instead of rural Maine? Any way, even with the blue hair, he is still a pretty amazing kid. Super kind and generous, polite, intelligent, compassionate, giving, loving, and a fantastic big brother. Happy Birthday Forrest Brewster!
