Fiacra is 7

Fiacra turned 7 at the end of June (I can't believe it's taken me this long to do a post). We celebrated his birthday while we were at Hourtin Plage with his cousins. He is planning another celebration in Ireland. Connell and I gave him a big box of Harry Potter Lego, which he loves. 

Fiacra is a bundle of energy. He loves sports, running and biking in particular. He is a bright boy, and loves math. He is enjoying living in France and is very happy to be back in the Pyrenees right now. He is eager to see his friend Ryland tomorrow, I can sense giddy times ahead for the next 2 weeks.

Connell has been telling Fiacra and Ailbhe the story of the Lord of the Rings over the past 3 weeks. They LOVE it. This is Fiacra's second time to hear it, Connell told it to him a few years ago. I can't believe how much Fiacra remembers. They listened to it for most of the car ride here today. Connell said he was going to take a break just as we were leaving the motorway onto smaller roads. Once we hit the smaller windy roads, Fiacra's car sickness kicked in, so Connell continued with the story. Once Fiacra is listening , he seems to forget about car sickness. So Connell was telling them the story for over 2 hours. He knows it incredibly well.
