Owen is FIVE! Well, that went quickly! The last five years have been the most eventful, fulfilling, joyful, fun, exciting years. Motherhood has completely transformed my life and I have one very bright little boy to thank for that.
He got to be the "helper" at school on Wednesday and then today he'll celebrate with his other January buddies in the class round out the week long celebration!
Here is a little interview I did with Owen today to capture the person he is right now at 5:
How old are you? I'm 5!

What is your favorite thing about school? Outside time
What is your favorite toy? "Glow up wands"
What is something you're really good at? Playing! With mommy.

What is your favorite thing you did this year? "Go to Tahoe! And play with the Lone Ranger Lego set up there. I really liked that. And playing at the two creeks (beaches) with the crawdads and the one without the crawdads. That was my favorite!"
You're at such a fun age right now! You have so many neat questions and curiosities, and you're truly just a really fun person. You are great company and you always keep us smiling and laughing with your clever and witty remarks. I'm so proud of the way you've taken to your role as big brother. You're quite thoughtful and conscientious when it comes to your brother. I've seen you put his needs and wants first on many occasions, and I know how hard that is for you to do. You have a big year ahead with our move and starting Kindergarten at a new school, so I'm excited to see where the year takes us. We love you to the moon and back, sweet boy!
