Six!

Eli,

First of all, I just want to say that this is the first year that I've ever not had this post ready to publish at 11:53am on your birthday.  That should tell you how busy we are nowadays and how fast this year has flown by!

We started a new birthday tradition sort of impulsively last night by talking about all of the fun things we did while you were 5.  We talked about going to Disney World and starting Kindergarten... Making new friends and becoming a star goalie. 

You have grown so much in the last year!  This time last year you had just started Pre-K and now you are amazing us in Kindergarten.  You are learning to read and write, do math and so much more.  But more importantly you are learning to be a good person and a good friend, even to those who may not be all that nice to you.  You were bit by another student this past week and you told me that you told her she could still be your friend as long as she didn't bite you again.  You also came home one day and told me that you and Maggie from Pre-K are in love :)

You loved playing baseball this past spring and you are loving soccer again this fall.  You have become the star goalie and play much more than you sit.  Unlike last year when your team lost almost every game this year your team is 5-0-2, you've even scored 4 goals!  I love watching you play because it's easy to see how much you enjoy it.

One of the teachers at your school told me that she's never seen a child smile as much as you do and it's so true!  Overall you are a very happy boy and you love everyone you meet!  I am so blessed to be your Mommy and I love watching you grow.  I am so looking forward to seeing you continue to grow this year!!

Love,
Mommy
