5 Years Old

Happy Tuesday!  Hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.  It's been HOT in Indiana.  We spent the weekend with family celebrating Olive's birthday.  She had the best time and is loving her new toys.  Watch for some unicorn filled birthday posts coming later this week.

Today at 4:47pm Olive turns 5.

We can hardly believe it.  Life has changed so much since she joined her family. 

Back in 2013 I was teaching 3rd grade and we were living in Salt Lake City.  Olive has been the most portable baby ever.  She's lived in UT, AR, MS and two homes in IN.  She's traveled a ton and loved it all.  She's smart, funny and is interested in so many things.

We're excited to keep celebrating her this week.

Here are a few fun facts about OLIVE KATE:

1. It took her years to grow hair. She barely had any hair when she was two and now it's so thick that I have a hard time washing it.  She's very opinionated about her hairstyles - two buns, two barrettes or one bow.  I just fix her hair like she asks every morning.  She also picks out her own clothes every day.

2. She doesn't like carbonated drinks, LOVES to eat olives and salty snacks.  Her favorite sandwich is a ketchup and mustard sandwich.

3. Olive loves to learn.  She's curious about everything.  She has a great imagination and she's always asking questions.  I can't wait to see what she learns in Kindergarten.

4. Almost every day she asks me if she can perform on a stage one day.  She has strong opinions about everything.

5. She has an amazing memory.  She remembers people's names, places we go and information with ease.
