You have grown leaps and bounds this year. You are a big kindergartner who is enjoying school, has a love for life and seizes every minute with humor. You are the funny one in the family and have had to learn the hard way that there are moments when we just have to stop being silly. Reading the word with daddy has become such a special time for the two of you that you make sure he doesn't miss a day. You are enjoying baseball and have had an amazing season with a great coach and team. You learned how to swim last summer and are eager for summer to get here. You have really grown into your role as big brother and have developed a sweet relationship with your sister. It is so sweet to watch the two of you play and too see her imitate and want to be just like you. You are a sweet boy who is so generous to others and that is one of the many things I love about you. You have an immense joy about you that brings a smile to others and not a day goes by that you don't make us laugh. Including the day of your surgery when the nurse asked me if you were allergic to anything, and you piped in and said "I'm allergic to people". I look forward to seeing the ways the Lord grows you in this next year. We love you sweet boy and are thankful for your life.
