Well, my little buddy Jed turned 6 two weeks ago! We had a really fun day for him. We took the kids to Putt Putt for their first visit. Turns out Ella has some natural putting ability. She got a 2 on a par 3 all on her own! That should make my dad proud! The boys had a great time as well, Luke just liked throwing the golf balls into the holes and climbing on stuff. They actually had a great deal going and we got a bunch of tokens for no extra cost so we hung out in the arcade and the kids all earned a micro-mini box of dots from all their tokens. Jed got some serious birthday loot so he was able to get some things he really wanted, a Storm Trooper helmet and a "build-your-own" lightsaber that is pretty cool. I took a few pictures but I don't think they are really blog worthy. But you can probably expect to see the helmet around Halloween time!
It's wierd that he is 6... he is tall, growing like a weed and he is very skinny. He is such a good boy and great helper for me. Some random things about Jed at 6:
*He is crazy about milk!
*He loves to play outside.
*He just started chewing gum.
*He is a very early riser and LOVES to talk excitedly first thing in the morning.
*He really enjoys coloring.
*Every now and then he walks on the sides of his feet like I did as a child.
*He has a "gurlfriend" in his class, a little girl with special needs, they color pictures for each other all the time.
*He has his mom's nose and sweet tooth!
*He loves to play video games and is shockingly good dispite not yet being able to read.
*He is the best big brother I have ever known.
Happy Birthday, Big Stuff!!!
