Four years old…
Five years old…
Six years old…
and now NINE!
It doesn’t get much better than this kid. As I say every year, he’s a happy kid who plays hard, tries hard, and loves hard. He has grown up so much over the last year and is becoming such a cool kid. He seems to be a “typical” middle child – pretty easy going and doesn’t demand too much attention. Because of that, he deserves some extra special attention sometimes! He and Maxwell fight like brothers but I sure am glad they have each other – they are gamer partners, yard football teammates, and the brunt of each other’s pranks. It’s awesome. If Spencer and Samantha get off on their own they have the very best time together. You should see the music video they made on my phone last week! 🙂 Spencer is the best brother to them both and they are so, so lucky to have him as the happy glue in the middle.
Spencer is doing excellent in school. He’s in 3rd grade with Miss Campbell and everything comes easy to him. I don’t think I’ve ever helped him study for anything and he’s still acing all of his work. It’s still a struggle to get him to read – he’d much rather be on the iPad – but we’re working on it. He has good friends but is also friends with everyone. He’s a pretty likable guy! His core group from kindergarten are still his favorites but he’s picked up some new best buds from his class this year. He’s a friendly, loyal kid who makes friends easily.
Spencer is doing his best at practicing to be a professional gamer or YouTuber! He’d be on the Nintendo or iPad all day long if we let him. He has a tendency to zone out – or zone in! – on his device and we have to keep that in check. Thankfully, if you can get him outside with any kind of ball he’s a happy camper. He’s really enjoying golf, loves baseball and basketball. He’s playing football for the first time and doing so well! He’s playing cornerback on defense but he’s also the guy that they will throw into any position when someone gets hurt and he figures it out! Spencer rarely gets flustered and keeps his cool in unknown situations. He’s made some great plays in positions he’s never played before. One thing I love about Spence is his good attitude about the games. Sure he loves to win but, if they don’t, he’s kind of ok with that too! He doesn’t quite have the competitive nature of his brother (or his mom!) in a good way. He’s also the best encourager and teammate. You can always hear him yelling the loudest for his teammates from the dugout or the bench!
