This was the first year Kaden invited friends over for his birthday. We just had 4 and 3 of them were our neighbors. They came after dinner and played, ate cupcakes and then Kaden opened his gifts. It was neat to watch Kaden learn how to treat his friends like guests, see them all play and interact, and help Kaden practice showing genuine appreciation to each of them for their gift and for coming. I never imagined what a hands-on learning experience it would be. At all ages, I'm so aware of the joy friends bring into our lives.
