I can't remember back that far. I know there was cake, brothers, grandmother, some kids from the neighborhood and kids from church.
And presents. Lots of presents.
Young Nathaniel here wanted to do something different for his 8th birthday. He decided that instead of buying presents, his guests should make a donation to a homeless program, and he picked Operation Nightwatch.
So this week, Nathaniel stopped by with checks and cash in the amount of $351 for shelter. How cool is that?
He is a student at TOPS School. He didn't know that the eighth-graders came to Nightwatch two afternoons this week to bake cookies for Valentine's Day for homeless folks. Nice synergy.
