Retrospective: Nathan

I celebrated six whole years of motherhood, yesterday. Six years of life for my son, Nathan. It was also his last day of kindergarten!

He wanted to go bowling, so we went to a little alley a few blocks away. We were starving when we finished, so we stopped at a favorite restaurant of his for dinner. They sang to him (his face was adorable when they showed up and burst into song) and gave him a free sundae! After he was done eating it, he made a request that we make this a birthday tradition for the rest of his life. That’s right, ladies…to win his heart, just give him some ice cream topped with fudge, whipped cream, sprinkles, and a maraschino cherry. He’ll be forever yours.

Let’s look back. A photo from every year of his life–

And now, he is SIX.

Handsome and funny and full of energy!

Our first day of summer vacation is going smoothly. He has a workbook to help keep his brain from shutting down and I’m starting a chore routine of cleaning in the mornings.

Plans for the rest of the summer include: not dying from heat, planting the rest of the tomato plants, taking a Metro ride to a museum or two (& to try out the Metro Rail!), working on our reading skills, getting Andrew to learn his ABC’s, and eating lots & lots of frozen popsicles!
