PSF and 6

Tomorrow my first little guy turns 6.

6!!

This is one of my favorite pictures of him. He was about 20 months old. I think it really sums up how cool he truly is.

Plus it reminds me of how he used to call flip-flops 'bip-bops'.



And here his is, my almost 6 year old.



He...

Is incredibly silly.

Loves to crash into people things, falls down a lot and prefers to run instead of walk.

Is an amazing reader. He recently finished Charlotte's Web and is now reading Illustrated Stories from Dickens. I know. I'm so glad there's another big reader in the house!

Had a great year in Kindergarten and won the Best Vocabulary award. (OK, I'll stop bragging now.)

Has become fascinated with superheroes. And villains.

Loves baseball, bike-riding, and playing with his friends. And even his brother and sister. Mostly. When they let him take total authority.

Has an amazing memory and probably knows more Bible verses than I do!

Really when I think of what an amazing boy my son is and what a blessing he is to our family, I'm rendered speechless.

That almost never happens to me.

Happy birthday, Jack. You are loved more than you'll ever know.

Happy Birthday to Jack! I am SUPER impressed with his reading. And the number of bible verses that my kiddos remember also made me feel like I didn't know nearly enough:) I hope y'all have a great birthday weekend!

What a guy!

Did he realize he had his "bips" on the wrong feet?

(incidentally, we used to call them "thongs" which, of course we don't anymore...)

He's reading Dickens? Now that is a man after my own heart!

Happy birthday Jack!
