Ben is Six

My Ben turned six in October. It just blows my mind that my sweet Ben Boo (he tells me only mom can call him that) is six.

Ben is a happy kid. He is everyone and anyone's friend.   He has a zest for life and excitement. Ben has such a great sense of humor and loves to be silly and have fun.

Ben loves his brother Hyrum and looks up to him. He is and always has been Hyrum's shadow. 

Ben loves to play with his Emmy too. One of the first facts that he tells people about is that he and Emmy are twins. He takes pride in the fact that she is his twin sister.

Ben loves Lucy and is always trying to make her laugh. 

Ben is such a talented reader. Recently he is obsessed about the calories that he is consuming so he is always reading the label on everything and anything.  Ben's teacher has him meeting with the reading specialist so that he can be challenged.  

At school, each grade did races, Ben was the fastest boy in Kindergarten and did the most sit-ups (I think). 

Ben is a great soccer player. He runs fast and plays hard. He is very excited to start a basketball clinic soon.

Ben LOVES to play with Beyblades(spinning tops), especially with Hyrum. 

Ben LOVES mustard. He always wants a mustard sandwich.  He doesn't understand why other people don't like mustard the way he does.  

I love it when Ben gets really excited and has lots to say. He won't stop to take a breath until he has finished telling you everything that he wants to say.

I love his smile and his big brown eyes. I love how he tells me randomly that he loves me.
