December 20th you turned 6.5 years old. We were so busy that we almost missed your half-birthday! Nevertheless, you are an amazing boy and grew so much in the previous 6 months.
You've been getting High Five magazine from your Grandma Vee since you were little, and recently switched over to Highlights. However, whichever magazine you look at, you have become interested in the recipes published in those magazines, and wanting to cook them. So one day at Black Butte, Gramma helped you make deviled eggs. You had a great time making them and they were delicious! Another time we also made raspberry-lemonade popsicles.
You built some great towers (before your little brother knocked them down).
Over the summer you started seeing Dr. L, who is now our family's chiropractor/massage therapist. The best part of going is getting to see Stella the dog. She is SO happy whenever you and Ryan show up, wagging her tail so hard that her entire back end shakes, and she is more than happy to sit on you or in your lap while you're receiving treatment. Such a good therapy dog.
You've always liked art... a little. It's never been a huge thing for you but I have noticed a big increase in your interest in drawing and creating pictures since you turned 6. You make the coolest pictures! One was of a dude surfing, another of ninjas, more with rocket ships, dragons, and a family picture with the sun and a tree. We keep having to get you new sets of markers, though, because your little brother loves them, too, but doesn't understand to put the caps back on!
