Taking time to smell the tulips

Late last week, all three boys dressed in their finest dutch apparel and we headed downtown Holland to Tulip Time. They all looked stunning! (Me and my big belly were glad to not have to try and fit into anything but a stretchy pannel.) RoseAnn made each of the boys' costumes and the town of Holland was definitely impressed with her handiwork. My handsome boys (all three of them) made the tulips look all the better!

Five and Fabulous!

I have been telling Jackson for weeks that he's not allowed to have a birthday because there is NO WAY we can have a 5 year old at our house. Really, where does the time go? I can hardly believe the boy is five.

Dear Jackson,

What a spirited child you are. You are full of energy, always full of ideas, creative, and playful. You have a vivid imagination and you have an energy that is contagious. You are a determined fella. You are often frustrated to be only 5 and not a bit older so that you can make more of the family decisions! :) You can also be so incredibly sweet. You like to tell me I'm beautiful (which I obviously love), you have a tender heart for young children, and you love our time to snuggle at the end of the day.

Your current favorites are riding bikes (and you LOVE your new big bike) and playing GeoTrax. You also like to color and love to read books. We are reading Charlotte's Web, your first chapter book and you have really gotten into it. You are starting to read some words on your own and I don't think it will be long before you start reading all on your own. Your teachers say you are doing so well in Spanish Emergency and you are more than ready for kindergarten.

Jackson, Daddy and I love you so much. We are proud of you and know that God has great plans for your life. We are excited to help you grow into the plans He has in store for you. We pray for you each day and we are so glad you are part of our family. Happy 5th Birthday!

Hugs and kisses,
Mom and Dad
