Madelyn: 6 Years Old


Madelyn Joy,

You are 6 years old!! We can't believe how much you've grown and matured this year.  You're sweet, but also sassy.  You have such a big and tender heart; always so caring and concerned for others, never wanting to leave anyone out.  Mommy, daddy and Theo love you so much and we are extremely proud of you.

You've almost completed a full year of Kindergarten and absolutely LOVE it.  I might be bias, but you have one of the best kindergarten teachers around.  She is always full of energy, super sweet, but at the same time, keeps all the kids in line.  You love it when she calls you "her little cupcake".
You are growing and thriving this year.  Reading above and beyond your level and right on track with all your other subjects.  I'm sure you'll be smarter than us, kid! 

You weigh 43 lbs and are 44 in tall

Currently in size 6t tops, pants and dresses.  Size 11/12 shoes.  Your favorite clothes are dresses and skirts.

Your favorite foods are still pizza, mac and cheese, noodles with cheese and fruit, but you are so good at eating whatever we put on your plate.

Going to sleep at night around 7pm, some days earlier when it's been a long day at school.  You'll occasionally nap in afternoon.

Some of your favorite activities are dancing, swimming, bike riding, soccer, jumping on the trampoline, eating, playing with your brother, coloring and playing with friends.

Two of your best friends at school are Jennifer and Baylee.  You talk about them constantly and love hanging out with them.  Thankful one of them is our next door neighbor.

Still taking ballet and tap.  You're very excited about your recital coming up soon!

Love you big 6 year old!


Spring Break Trip


For spring break this year, we decided to go back to our ole college stomping grounds to see some friends and professors, then down to Arkansas to visit family and more friends.  Such a good trip, but definitely lots of driving!  The kids were troopers and did really well.

MJ Kindergarten Program


Last week, Madelyn had her kindergarten music program at school!  She was so excited!! 
There were a few songs Madelyn "performed" on and she was all about it.  I'm sure y'all can't imagine that 😜  And of course my little social butterfly invited some of her favorites.  Which meant saving a whole row...we had lots of not so happy stares from other parents...oh well.  Theo was mesmerized the whole time.  Loved it all! 

Weekend Wrap Up


Our weekend started off with book character day at school on Friday!  MJ dressed up as Junie B. Jones "Captain Field Day".  My spunky girl.

When she got home from school on Friday, we had popcorn and movie night.  This was about 5 minutes after the movie was on...
