... and then they turned 6

Age 5 has now come and gone.  I'm sitting here watching a movie with my sweet 6 year olds, and I have to be honest... it makes my heart hurt a little bit.  We've had a great day.  They each got to invite a friend to join our day of fun.  We started out at the Ankeny indoor playground, had lunch at Pizza Ranch, then we had an A to Z scavenger hunt at Target.  It has been amazing to spend the day with them today.  I can't seem to get enough of spending time with these sweet kids (well, if i'm being totally honest I do enjoy spending time by myself too).

Here are some highlights about my 6 year olds (it doesn't get easier as many times as I say it.....)

41 pounds
Loves to READ everything
Is reading books by himself for the most part....
He loves basketball (both playing and watching ISU)
His best friends are .... everyone in his class
Is excited to start playing Coach Pitch baseball this summer.  He is hoping his buddy Blake is on his team.

40 pounds
Loves to READ
Loves to sing and dance
Loves her gymnastics class and practicing cartwheels
Is great at art and using her imagination

I'm so proud of these two.  They make life better every day.  They make me want to be a better person and a better mother.  I thank God for them every day, and the blessings/miracles that they are. It's so strange to think about where we were at 6 years ago at this time.  Not knowing what their future would hold and here I sit with perfect little children (and by perfect, I don't mean their behavior... :-)

Happy Birthday Birk and Addy.  I love you to Heaven and back to Ankeny and I always will.

Blessings on your 6th birthday and the year to come.
