For "Spaceman Spiff's" 8th birthday we took him to the Denver zoo. We surprised him by showing up in his 2nd grade classroom with all our kids and saying, "Happy Birthday!" Then we checked him out of class early and took him for a fun filled afternoon. We debated whether or not to take him out of class, but in the end we decided that the wonderful surprise and memory would be better than an extra 2 hours of class time, especially in the life of a little boy who has so rarely had good things done for him. Since he ended up having to leave our home approximately a week later, I was so glad we made his birthday extra special.
