For Collin

Dear Collin,
You've been seven for a week now and I am just getting the chance to sit down and write your your birthday letter. Time flies. Seven years ago I held you in my arms for the first time. You brought a special love and energy to our home...and you still do!

Collin you are one smart boy! You do well in school and love learning. You love facts and science. Your bedtime stories usually consist of books about the solar system, volcanoes, dinosaurs, or the human body. You are a great speller and you have an amazing memory often memorizing things having only seen them once, like your spelling words at school. You love math. You and Sophie can often be found quizzing each other on math facts. And you love reading. You are always asking for new books to read and you love finding new chapter books to get into.

Collin from the moment you were born you have been full of energy. From a tiny baby you were a jumper, and you still are. You jump all over our house, and everywhere you go. You are constantly moving and rarely sit still for a moment. You would rather be out running with friends, or riding your bike or skateboard than sitting inside watching TV.

You such a sweet boy and the best brother your sisters could ask for. They are so lucky to have a brother like you. They look up to you and you guys share such a great friendship. I hope that never changes. When you are gone, they can hardly wait until you are home again. You also have a special relationship with your Dad. You love spending time with him whether it is going on dates, racing BMX, or playing Pokemon. He is a great example to you.

Your favorite things as you turn seven are: BMX racing, Pokemon, and playing with friends. Your favorite book right now is Turbo (you can't wait for the movie to be out), your favorite color is red, and your favorite food is pizza.

Collin, we love you so much! You are such a blessing to our family.
Your Mom
