He asked for a Star Wars party, and was content with a Star Wars
tablecloth and toy at a beach resort on the Indian Ocean. He's now
celebrated 3 birthdays there, 1st, 2nd and 5th! (photos of odd years
this time: birth, 1, 3 and 5)
Happy Birthday Joel! You are such a gift to us! I have never known a
more servant-hearted, obedient, willing, mango-loving, friendly
5-yr-old! You are so at home in Africa. Whether we are visiting
people in a mud hut or a resort hotel, you make friends. You can see
through their circumstances to their humanity, and that is a gift.
What a privilege to be your parents! Happy 5th!
