Bliss follows in his father's footsteps and is a quite the athlete. Unfortunately, he did get some DNA from me and therefore may have to try harder than his father did, but he is naturally talented when it comes to all sports. He just catches on pretty quickly. Right now he plays flag football and he is really good. And I'm not just saying that because he is my son. Game one, he played mostly defense as corner or defensive end and I don't think anyone crossed the line of scrimmage with the ball. He's pretty quick. Game two, he played mostly offense which was a bit more difficult. Why? Defense is simple enough, get the flag of the kid that has the ball. Offense, you have to execute plays. He did score the extra points after one touchdown and then went on to score a touchdown later in the game. He was pretty excited.
Bliss is a great student. He's interested in science and math. With writing and reading, he does what he is asked and nothing more. When he does read, he enjoys nonfiction. He says he actually feels like he's learning something when he reads nonfiction. Again, so like his father. He does enjoy me reading Encyclopedia Brown or Magic Tree House books to him even though he can read them himself. And I am always amazed that he has spectacular handwriting. I thought it was normal, the way he wrote, and thought it was strange that his kindergarten teacher always commented on it. Then Zade started school and the teacher assured us that Zade had age appropriate handwriting, even though I would consider it chicken scratch at best.
We celebrated Bliss's birthday yesterday as a family.
Then everyone got a ride.
Birthdays can't be simple in our house, we have to drag them out. We still have the birthday party for Bliss to invite friends to this coming weekend and then he'll be baptized the following weekend. My folks are flying in for that and we are all really excited for both.
