Six Years Old!

When I look at Anna these days, she looks so grown up to me. The baby face is gone, and her long hair makes her look older. She wanted a Hello Kitty birthday party. This was her first friend birthday party, and we had five little girls from school, soccer, and church.

Here is a snapshot of Anna at 6 years old:

She loves...Hello Kitty, backpacks, playing Mommy/Baby, swimming, soccer, Polly Pockets, iCarly, making crafts, school, riding her bike, and playing with her brother and sister.

She does not leave the house, to organize her room, to watch "baby" cartoons, or shopping in general.

Her very motherly, sweet, sensitive, inquisitive, and sometimes dramatic.

She wants to be...a songwriter when she grows up (like Taylor Swift).

4 times 2

I can't believe Adam and Isabel turned four years old. Only one more year and they will go to kindergarten!! I remember when I had them a woman I knew who had twins told me it wouldn't get easier until they were five.

I beg to differ, it has been much easier since they turned about two. The last year has honestly been a breeze. Well, as breezy as having three kids can be. They are still a handful, but I don't feel like the fact that they are twins changes anything at this point. My tune might change when I have two kids turning driving age, or going to college!

Here is a little about them at age 4:

Isabel is...unique, spunky, chatty (is there a stronger word for chatty?), sweet, giving, friendly, outgoing, smart, and social.

Isabel dolls, playing with her big sister, coloring, talking, playing dress up, swimming, going to the park, and eating treats.

Adam is... athletic, loving, passionate, friendly, hard-working, independent, artistic, and sometimes rambunctious.

Adam loves...Legos, cars, Zhu Zhu pets, making crafts, riding his bike or scooter, working outside, swimming, running, sports, and reading books.

End of the School Year - Adam and Isabel

Adam and Isabel were Bouncing Bunnies this year. They absolutely loved preschool and often whined on Mon/Wed/Fri that Anna got to go to school but they didn't. As a result, they will go three days per week next year.

Celebrating their birthday with the class

I wish I had some pictures of them on the playground. I often arrived early to pick them up and would watch them play. Isabel loved the swings. Adam was always either in the sand box, or giving kids rides on the tricycle.

End of the School Year - Anna

Anna wrapped up her kindergarten year with a performance that included "The World is a Rainbow" and "God Bless America." She loved Mrs. Nuttall and the other picture is with her friend, Chantal.
