Noah Alisher Thompson has reached the double digits!
Noah was born June 7. 2003 in Petropavlovsk, Kazakhstan,
and adopted into the Thompson family a year later.
Noah's mom made him a cookie cake and it was вкусный (tasty).
Just before our beach trip, Noah received a book about monsters of the deep.
Noah also got a new soccer ball and a ball pump.
The ball also doubles as a hat.
Noah's best gift (other than his family, of course)
failed to arrive: a regulation size soccer goal is in a box
on a truck, somewhere between here and there. So, Hurry up, box!
Noah is ready to fend off the ocean beasts.
This deserves a caption but I am reluctant.
