I finally got my six year olds birthday photos done. We are only 2 months late. I had a great idea involving pirates… but it wasn’t going to happen. So today we went outside and took a bunch of books with us. Since Jens was a year old he has LOVE, LOVED books. More than any of the other kids. He used to fall asleep on a pile of books when he was a year and a half. He is in 1st grade reading on a 3rd grade level. He has been reading Calvin and Hobbes lately. Even though he doesn’t get a lot of the jokes, he still laughs and is completely entertained by it. I remember reading my last Calvin and Hobbes book, I had them all, and my heart aching that it was over. I loved Calvin and his relationship with Hobbes. It has been so fun re-discovering them through my kids.
Besides reading, Jens is an avid gamer… of the board game variety. He plays strategy games for adults and knows all the rules. Its amazing. He also loves helping his dad in the garden. He’s just a pleasant kid to be around and super smart. We are blessed to have him in our family! Happy birthday buddy!
