Taylor gets to celebrate his birthday with basketball practice!! That doesn't seem quite fair, but he's okay with it because he's a good sport :) His book recommendation is one of my favorites - Peter and the Starcatchers. If you haven't read it, you're missing out. It's amazing. The 4th book in the series recently came out and I checked it out from the public library just last week. I can't wait to read it.
Happy birthday, Taylor!
