My second oldest grandchild, Sebastian Phoenix Files, is eight-years-old today. Sebastian, missing the Fourth of July by only one day, was almost a firecracker baby. He was born in Phoenix, Arizona, which is always hotter than a firecracker in July!
My oldest grandchild, Boone, was only eight-years-old when Sebastian was born. Boone and his daddy and I rode the train to Arizona that summer to meet Sebastian, and Boone busied himself on part of the trip trying to figure out how old he would be when Sebastian was finally old enough to play with him. Well Boone, he's old enough now!
Now Sebastian lives in Salem, Oregon with his parents and his brother, Judah, and his sister, Willow.
Have a wonderful birthday, Sebastian. I hope to be out to see you in a few weeks!
