Chase and Owen turned 7!!!! On July 1st. I had their doors decorated with streamers; we had breakfast and opened presents (Mixels and Constructobots) and headed to swimming lessons. We took their friends Will and Colin to Cherry Berry for ice cream after that and everyone had fun! That night we had their favorite meal, mac n cheese and corn dogs! J It was a wonderful day remembering back to the day they were born. It truly is amazing how fast time goes and how much I love them more and more each day. They are amazing boys.
Chase is fun loving and enjoys being with people all the time. He has so much fun and can go and go and go. He is fair and a rule follower and likes to make people feel welcomed. He loves Jesus, says prayers at dinner, loves his sister and brother, reads very well and works hard. He doesn't complain much and works hard most of the time. There are times when he doesn't feel he does something well and then doesn't want to play (like baseball practice at home). He is creative, plays well by himself, has great ideas and is loving to me. Chase loves to cuddle, have his blankey with him and loves stories. He organizes play well and groups of kids well.
Owen has a great sense of justice and will try to talk you into whatever it is he wants. He doesn't take No for an answer, unless it's really important. He's not disobedient, just is able to argue his point! He feels for others and is very empathetic, often getting tears in his eyes as he "feels" what others are feeling. He helps Hattie a lot in the car because he sits next to her and she seeks him out for help. He loves to have others over too. When he has had enough friend time he will come in the house and play by himself (not too often, but sometimes). He's a hard worker and wants things perfect and can get frustrated if it's not. He is also a good reader and friend. He loves Jesus and often asks questions or says we should pray for others.
My boys amaze me daily and I am so thankful for them in my life!
