This Is Six

When the world is full of trees that deserve to be climbed.
When friendships are full of giggles and wonder.
When the way things work is endlessly fascinating.
When reading opens up a whole new world of knowledge.
When your imagination can fuel your entire universe.
When you believe in magical things like the tooth fairy.
When playtime goes too quickly and chore time goes too slowly.
When your parents still seem like they have the answers.
When anything is possible.
This. is. 6.

Happy birthday to Owen, my sweet, smart, always curious boy!

At his birthday circle at school, we passed around photos as Owen walked the ellipse six times to represent the earth circling the sun. Afterwards, his friends asked him some questions.

A: Two hours before my bedtime.
Q: What's your favorite subject?
A: Math.
Q: What's your favorite sea animal?
A: Lobster. (Pretends to munch.)
