Porter turned 8 this month and that comes with a lot of excitement. It started with a Harry Potter party with his friends.
In typical Betsy fashion, it was amazing. Betsy was Professor McGonagall, I was Snape. The kids all got wands, learned how to do spells, in Potions class we lit some stuff on fire (of course), and then the smart ones got to go to Honeydukes and buy an assortment of dragons’ tears and slug repellent.
He had a second party a week later when his cousins arrived where we played some awesome games involving marbles and water-buckets, and shower-caps and marshmallows.
After all the parties, we had a wonderful baptismal service. Porter picked out all the speakers, singers, and other participants and it was a really special moment. At the end of the day, Porter told Betsy that he felt ‘loved.’ We are very proud of him.
