Theodore: 6 Years Old


Theodore Joseph,

You are SIX!! We just can't believe it.  You just finished Pre-K and are moving up to Kindergarten next year.  We're so incredibly proud of you big boy.  You excelled in school this year and are above and beyond where you need to be for next year. 

Mommy has loved having you around as her little buddy this past school year while sis has been in school.  You're a trooper running errands, going to the gym (which you love!), getting special treats and helping me at home.  We've had some fun this year and mom is definitely going to miss you while at school next year.

Daddy loves that you willingly help with projects around the house.  You'll sit next to him with tools and hand him whatever he asks for.  Such a big helper and happy to do it. 

And Madelyn just adores you.  She loves reading to you and showing you how to do things.  You've definitely learned a lot from her.  You've taken off reading and she helps you with words and teaches you new things.  You definitely have your not so great moments together, but we just love seeing the sweet moments where you love on each other.

You weigh 39.4lbs and are 44in. tall

Currently in size 6t tops and 5t pants.  Size 12/13 shoes.

Your favorite foods are still the same cheese, fruit, veggie straws, goldfish, granola bars, cereal, mac and cheese and anything with sugar.  It takes an awful long time for you to eat anything (except ice cream!).  We've set a timer for you at meal times otherwise we're at the table forever!

Going to sleep at night around 7pm and waking up around 8am.

Some of your favorite activities are gymnastics, reading, crafting - cutting paper, gluing and taping, Pre-K, helping with anything, going to Tennova, "dog concerts" and putting on birthday parties for your animals.

Still doing so well in gymnastics!

You and sis played soccer this spring and daddy helped coach!  You both did such a great job.  Proud of you kiddo.

Theo, you are the sweetest boy and we just love your kind heart so much.  You'd give someone the shirt off your back if they asked.  Love you to the moon and back a hundred million infinity times!


Madelyn's Last Day of School


Madelyn finished up 1st grade this year.  Cannot believe she'll be in 2nd come this fall.  She is such a smarty and so sweet to her friends in class.  She had a lot of changes in her classroom this year, but handled everything very well.  We are proud of you sweet pea!

Mrs. Petree and Madelyn

Theo's Last Day of School


Theo finished up Pre-K and is moving up to Elementary School!  Kindergarten here he comes!  He is beyond ready to start school and so excited to be in the same building with his sister.  Proud of you buddy!

Mrs. Tricia, Theo and Mrs. Stephanie

Madelyn's 1st Grade Field Day


One of Madelyn's favorite days of the school year is field day.  It's always so stinkin hot, but she loves it all the same.  I love being able to have flexibility to help out at her school and see her in action.  Wouldn't change a thing.

Mother's Day


Love this little family of mine!

Annie's Wedding


Our friend, Annie, got married in May and asked the kids to be flower girl and ring bearer.  They were such cuties!

Madelyn was a little apprehensive about walking down the aisle because she couldn't see where the bridesmaids went in front of her, but bub helped her out and she did a great job standing up there with the big girls.  Proud of them both.

1st Grade Fun Day


At Madelyn's Elementary School, each grade takes a day at the end of the school year and has a fun day.  First grade's theme this year was Hawaiian luau.  She was dressed up super cute!  Theo and I headed to school that morning to join in the fun.  He knows quite a few of the kids in her class since we're up there often.  So fun to see them all in action!

Mimi, Papa & Soccer!


Mimi and Papa came to visit at the beginning of May.  The kids love seeing them and they were able to stay for their last soccer game.  So fun!
