little man is... kind hearted and compassionate, constantly in motion, a naturally gifted athlete, usually a rule follower, a question asker, an encourager to m1, in first grade. our firstborn is growing up. and he's very proud of his rolling backpack. m1 is... a ray of sunshine, extremely positive, naturally funny, always trying to do what her older brother does, usually one step behind ~ but unconcerned. our middle child is now in kindergarten. and she cut her hair just two weeks ago... was two haircuts away from being one length. good thing she is cute.
