Owen: 6 Years

Well now that Owen is 6.25, I thought it was time to document how this kind, fair, & hard working kid rocks my world. The intricate details of Owen are changing as he grows and matures through his kindergarten year, and I'm loving watching him unfold. His report cards show him to be working hard, meeting academic expectations, honing some leadership skills, and befriending most everyone. His favorite friend, however, is Matthew. When their teacher needs to know how a situation really went down, she turns to Owen & Matthew. This makes my heart swell! (Maybe Matthew can help me intervene btwn Millie & Owen?!?!?).

Owen is getting more serious. He still likes to giggle, of course,
but he is sensitive & internalizes most things..... that apple didn't fall far!
 He also loves to follow rules, and it turns out that is a nice quality to have in a kid ;)  

His favorites are still his favorites. Ralphie is the stand by lovey.
Hot wheels cars are the go to toy. He loves to run & race.

His head isn't often in the clouds, unless there's an airplane or he's watching TV. 
(ps... he doesn't like movies. Any story line where there is an antagonist is too much drama!)

On the way to cousin Kelley's wedding where he was the featured ring bearer. 
Who does he look like these days? 

Fairy tale day @ school. He dressed as a wolf. I hope he didn't blow any one's house down!

I'm still trying to create Tiger fans out of these kids.. 

 Serious and still. Very meticulous about the way he is holding this chick!
This photo really captures his personality!

He wrote this card to my mom who is in the middle of tax season. 
It was so sweet.. I might have cried a little bit. 

These two get along pretty well, but Amelia can get really jealous of Owen. She wants to make sure everything is 100% fair. Naturally, that starts a few fights. 

Owen is playing baseball this spring. He hasn't played any other sport this kindergarten year, because frankly, he's been SO tired! 5 days a week of school & 3 days a week of before & after care (adeventure club) can really wear a kiddo out!

He loves math & is reading anything he can. Advertisements, road signs, encyclopedias, etc :) When he grows up he wants to be a scientist & we frequently have science experiements going on at our house. 

He's a work hard, play hard kind of boy. I've loved watching him this year. Thanks for sharing in our joy and loving him along side us!
