Our boy is just the sweetest. He’s also six! Here are some things I want to remember about him in this phase of life.
This kid has got some potential. He learned to swim pretty confidently this summer, and he was unstoppable! He got to be a camper at the Mini Trojan Football camp this year for the first time and loved it. He’s pretty fast too, or so I hear from him. 🙂
On a given day, he is seen walking around with his spear in hand, playing out some elaborate imaginary battle in his head. Dad and Olan love to wrestle and tickle each other these days too. He loves our Minecraft Wednesdays, drawing crazy creatures like Mecha Godzilla and Venom, watching sports games, anything superheroes, and reading before bed.
He’s loving kindergarten too! He is *SMART* of course because what parent doesn’t think so? But he does read well for a kindergartener, and even though I’m not sure how much a kinder student is supposed to know in math, he loves to add numbers together! I’ve heard several accounts of this kid being a good friend to his classmates. This makes my heart happy!
He is a pretty helpful dude these days. First things first, he is sleeping later in the morning (7:30am woo!). He does chores around the house, including putting away his laundry, cleaning the bathroom sink, he puts away silverware from the dishwasher, and sometimes sets the table, complete with napkins and a candle. He keeps his room pretty tidy, and follows through with tasks well… usually.
Olan never has been much of a dare devil. He’s learning to ride his bike without training wheels, but it might be awhile. Ha ha! He’s a little shy of our chickens, he’s got the cutest squeaky little voice, and he’s real snuggly in the mornings.
Sure love being this dude’s mom!
