And He's Five!

Five years ago Joe, very briefly, took over my blog to announce that Lucas was born.

How can this little boy be ready to start Kindergarten in about six months? He's growing too fast!

The breakfast in bed for the birthday boy this morning:
Lucas, you're still inquisitive and curious and love to learn. You pay attention when Kayla does her school work and want to learn all the things she's learning. We were out to dinner last night, and this restaurant has 5 different types of BBQ on their tables. One of them is Carolina Sweet. I asked my mom if she wanted that one but paused after I said Carolina and you said, "Carolina Gold?"

For those not familiar with SC history, Carolina Gold is what they called rice because it was a major cash crop in the colonial times.

You get a long with just about anyone and enjoy playing with kids younger and older than you. Sometimes I think you think you're older than you are when you're playing with the 3rd and 4th graders on our street. 

You still enjoy putting puzzles together, figuring out how things work, reading and riding your bike (which you learned to do without training wheels several months ago). You are enjoying preschool and all the friends you've made there. You can count by 10s, and 5, and can tell me what are even/odd numbers. You like playing math games and drawing pictures. You are really in to chess right now too.

I hope you always keep the sweet nature you have, but a little less whining would be nice!

Happy 5th birthday Lucas!
