Happy 6th Birthday

Dear Son,

This last year you continued to grow. You were finally tall enough to climb the rock wall at the YMCA and you love to do so every chance you get. Other bigger kids are impressed that you make it to the top. You make it look so easy. You have continued to get better in sports. You like to play basketball, baseball, racket ball, go skating, ride your bike and swim. You LOVE to run on the tread mill. You can do pull-ups, sit-ups, push-ups and jumping jacks. This year you made a decision to be healthy and you like to work out. We think you are one healthy kid. Way to go!

In the Fall we officially started Kindergarten. You learned to read like a champ. You can read and write your numbers to 100, counting by 1's, 5's and 10's. You like to make up math problems and figure them out. Such as what is 5 plus 7. You have also learned some Spanish words. You like school but you still do not like to color. You have a good concept of dates and times. You love to make up silly rhyming sentences. Sometimes I can not get you to stop rhyming. Everything I say you can turn into a rhyme. You can spell three letter words and like to figure out other words too. You are one smart guy.

You are so funny. You can make anyone laugh. Your favorite silly face right now is twisting your tongue through your empty hole. When you lost your two bottom teeth you thought it was great. Especially when you figured out your silly face. You are the king of knock knock jokes. You and your sister can tell jokes for a long time. Sometimes you two just look at each other and bust out laughing. I love the sound of your laugh, it is contagious. You fill my life with laughter.

I love you little man. I pray you will continue to grow big and strong. That your love for Jesus will grow more and more as well. You are one cool kid and I can not wait to see what God has in store for you this year. It is going to be great.

With a butterfly, eskimo and last but not least a kiss from mom.

This is a great letter. You're going to keep it somewhere safe, right? So you can give it to him when he's all growed up, right? :)
What great memories!

Great letter! It gave me a good idea to do for my kids on their birthdays. Thanks for sharing.
