I can’t believe that John is six today. I can’t wait to see what this next year has in store for us with our little boy (who’s not quite so little any more.) I have thoroughly enjoyed John being five. He started Kindergarten last fall and little did I know what a little wizard I had on my hands! He has LOVED school and loved learning. He was always excited to not only go to school, but work on his homework, and now his summer packet. He enjoyed his classmates and he looks forward to seeing them again soon.
John is very inquisitive and always asking questions. They are not questions like, “Why is the sky blue?” or “Where do babies come from?” More often than not, they have to do with theology, “Where does God live?” “Does everybody sin?” “Where does God come from?” “Why does God make restaurants?” Those are the more mild questions. I find myself telling John, “That’s a good question for daddy.” A LOT!
He also has a lot to tell people. When Aaron took him to the fire station for his birthday instead of listening to what the fire chief had to say, John was the one explaining what firefighters do! He has also learned a lot about animals from Wild Kratts and has a new vocabulary thanks to Word Girl. He loves to read and is happy reading to Lydia, me or just by himself. He’s beginning to understand the world around him and it’s interesting as a parent to watch him discover life – the good and the bad.
His favorite friends are Tyler, David, James, Roman, and Jaran. He loves the colors blue and green. He wants to be a mail man or a fireman when he grows up. His favorite books are anything Curious George and his favorite food is mac and cheese.
He’s a good kid. He’s my favorite 6-year-old!
