I figured Hutch turning 6 was the perfect time to make a random post just to let you know I haven't forgotten about you & of course to wish the big boy a Happy Birthday! (Sorry, Hazel, I know I didn't post on your birthday. I love you.) This pic ranks pretty high on my "fave" list- Jeremy snapped it last night after letting Hutch pick out a new pole & tackle box for fishing. I mean, how big does Hutch look here? Really. HOW on earth can he be six years old? He looks so comfortable trekking through that parking lot with his new gear. Like, let's do this. Where's my boat?
Hutch, you are amazing. You are smart. You continue to entertain us with your wit and cleverness. You are passionate and you have one of the sweetest souls I have ever encountered. You are your Daddy's best buddy and you are figuring it all out, one day at a time. In the past year, you have rocked Kindergarten. You have made lots of friends. You have ridden that school bus. You have seen awesome places by train and by car. You have taught your sister many things and you continue to be the brightest star in her sky. Thank you for being you & I can't wait to see what this year brings- we love you TONS!!!!!
