To my Adrian:
What a neat kid you are! Consistent with each birthday, I can report you know what you like and your likes are consistent. Farming. Tractors. You still hardly go a day without wearing some "John Deere" apparel.
Even though you love farming, you spend just as much time drawing and creating as you do farming. Your art has more details than even a few months ago. We find homemade books upon books and you could use a whole pack of paper in a week. You also cut your favorite stuff out and paste it in scrapbooks still. Mostly tractors, but occasionally other random things.
You are definitely not a sports guy and you'll tell anyone that. You love to 'work' around the farm. Any job-plowing, shoveling, collecting eggs, tending animals, taking out the compost...you want to do it. You're such a handy helper to have around!
You are such an eager learner. You keep these nature displays with all the random things you find. You've been interested in learning about birds, plants you can eat and predators. You could listen to anything on audio all day long. Your most recent love is the Boxcar children. You're also becoming quite the reader yourself!
While you do enjoy going places, home is your most favorite place to be. You are never, ever bored. You always have plenty of ideas to fill your time. You still are a mama's boy though. Anywhere I go, you're right there.
You're mature beyond your years with your seriousness, your memory, your thoughtfulness, kindness and your honesty, but I love how you're not too old to snuggle your stuffed animals or show affection to your parents wherever we go. You are such a fun 6 and a half year old, I am lucky to call you mine.
