5 years old?! How can that be?! What happened to our little baby girl? Wow, Averie, you are so amazing! I just love how creative you are. You love projects and being the leader to organize games and activities you and Baylor are doing. You are a little mama when it comes to Colbie. You keep your brother quiet when she is napping and are gentle and kind to your sister. She loves to smile at you when you sing and talk to her. We have started working on school, you are so ready to start kindergarten! I would say we are well on our way already. We will formally begin once fall comes with more structure and lessons and time together one on one. Until then we work on work books and being creative together. You love doing your “tag” and it is a great “teacher.” You also like your stuffed animals lately and dressing them up and playing Dr. or baby with them. You enjoy going places and “making friends” and I have yet to find us a play group to join (but really want to) so you can make some friends your age and have kids to interact with. I have also entertained the idea of gymnastics. I should start a “to-do” list specifically for you. Being 5 has been super exciting for you this year. You get a big party this year and are very happy about that. If I would have let you it would have been a Dora party, but I had already decided on a butterfly party. I am sure Dora will be there in the form of gifts and accessories. Well, I am not sure when the next update will be but you are a super leader and love reading and learning. You are sweet to your brother (most of the time) and sister (all of the time). We love you sweet bubba-do!
