Our third birthday this month was on Saturday, Oct. 18th.Jesse Alan. Jesse is a little farmer through and through. He lives and breathes farming. Basically if it has wheels, he's interested in it. If he knows that any work is to be done with a tractor that day, he will be sure to catch a ride no matter how early the hour. And he will ride for hours on end and never seem to grow tired of it. But he doesn't just ride, he learns. He knows so many things about farming already. After a day in the field he usually has many stories to tell. And stories he does tell :) If you ask Jesse a question about something, you need to be sure you have quite a bit of time to listen to his answer. He likes to give lots of detail! When he was younger, before he could really talk, he would just come up to you and babble baby babble (remember that Jody & Denyse?). Constant babble. Now we see why....he was practicing. When Jesse goes outside one of the things he will usually do is check the tire tracks on our driveway. From there he can tell if anyone has been on the yard, and usually who it was, unless it is a strange vehicle. He learned to ride his bike without training wheels this year within a few minutes and then he was off. He is a little scary to watch though as he spends more time looking at his tires than the road in front of him! Jesse loves to learn and spends many hours of his day practicing his phonics or his adding skills. Basically he's a little sponge, taking it all in:) We love you Jesse and hope you have a great year being 6!
