I would love to hear thoughts or feedback from your perspective after watching. Feel free to comment below or email me.

Tomorrow you will turn FIVE years old! I keep thinking that I should feel that the time has gone by so quickly, but from my perspective it actually hasn't. In the most wonderful way, I can look back and think about your first five years and see how each year you have been growing up and turning into the kid you are now. It is the most unique experience to be a mom who gets to see all the seasons of her child's life in one continual glimpse. In my heart you are still that little toddler, yet you are also this five year old ready to become your own person. Eva, you are passionate. Some days you give me gray hairs and drive me to chocolate. Daddy says it's because you and I are so alike. I am, however, so extremely grateful that I have gotten to be at home with you every day for the past five years. I've gotten to live through the hard and see the ways God is shaping you.
You are a friend. I love your great big social heart. You love your preschool friends, your church friends, anybody random we meet anywhere. And then there is your best friend...Jensen. Oh goodness do you love him. Of course you have normal kid moments, but your love and concern for his safety and happiness shines through.
You are funny. Sister, you are your Daddy's girl. You know how to make us laugh.
Eva, there is so much more I could write. I think I'll end with my greatest prayer for you. Love the Lord with all your heart. If one day you are looking back at all my letters to you, know that I love Jesus and I want you to love Jesus too. We never want you to be perfect, just to know that you are perfectly loved. You put the crazy fun in our lives. Daddy and I love you so much and are so proud of you.
HAPPY 5th BIRTHDAY, Eva Kate!!!!!

She said she had fun and that her favorite part of the day was PE. She also said that at rest time the teacher had to tell her and a few other girls to stop talking, "a few times." I can't wait to see all that she learns this year!

1. We swam. Jensen went from splashing around to actually enjoying floating in the puddle jumper, and Eva became a professional mermaid. She can now swim all the way across our neighborhood pool all by herself. I am a bit over the whole apply sunscreen and load up all of the pool stuff process. But it was fun for a season.

Is it any wonder all three of these kids fell asleep on the way to meet up with Amanda for dinner?
