You are almost 5 and 1/2 now. Alot has changed since last year. We've now been here in Pennsylvania for over a year. You got to enjoy your first true bad, Northern winter. But we seemed to survive, even if I don't know if Momma did. She's still complaining about how cold it is, in June none the less.
We had our first trial run for homeschool this year. For the most part you seem interested and excited. Especially with your Sing, Spell, Read, Write cd. Now this coming year, it looks like we have a little more in depth schooling planned. It seems like you've begun mastering your leappad games. You've been very proud of winning Monsters University, and you have nearly won all the animals in Super Animal Genius. On some of the games like the Wii Fit, you are getting really good from perseverance and trying over and over again, you continue to improve. And you are applying that to other areas. Momma is working with you on different areas and chores. You are getting more efficient and better at washing dishes, taking care of Kita (especially food and water), and you can do all your clothes except your buttons. Momma has been teaching you and Ruth alot about the Bible as you read it through together each day. Just this evening, Momma asked you questions about the first 3 kings of Israel and the prophet Elijah and you were able to answer all the question and convey the story and meanings for all these characters.

with alot of help from me. You need to learn to jump.
You still ask 1,000 questions a day. Some of it being weird situational, super hero or bad guy questions. Others being "what does this do," or "how does eating this help my body work?" Then of course there is the funny thing you do, when you say, "I have a question. Do you know how the dinosaurs died? There was a big giant meteor and it cause tsunamis and bad dust in the air, and that's one guess." You remain concerned with your siblings, particularly with Ruth and especially Rebecca. You help her with things, and make sure she doesn't get into things. You are often insistent that we need to have alot more babies (usually 10 brothers is the request), and you tell us you are practicing for your babies.

Well, son, I love you. I am thankful for you. Each year you grow taller and taller, and we hope you grow in maturity, responsibility, and knowledge, but still hold that fascination for dinosaurs, stars, plants, or the other wonders in this world. Be a good boy, help Momma out when you can, we love you.
