Now you are 6 {Loukas}

Dear Louka,

Happy 6th birthday little dude!

I should probably stop calling you the little one - I know you are not that little any more!

A big year for you this year - you finished Prodimodiki (pre-school) and in 2 weeks time you move up to first grade and start your new school with your brother who will be going into fourth grade.  I really hope you enjoy school as much as Leo, and settle in well.   You are very excited at the moment anyway.

This year you have changed a lot, so chatty and funny at home and you are much more of an equal to Leo when you play these days.  You have got so much better with playing games, and not always winning,  unless you play Leo, when you are more likely to get upset by losing.   It's like you don't mind not to win, as long as you are not losing to him!

Your love of this year has been football, ever since you watched the World Cup with Dad.  I love your conviction that one day you will be in a world cup team, despite never having played an actual game yourself.  Keep practising though - you can do anything if you want to enough!

I'm not sure what the highlights of the year will be for you,  I guess having Nic, Roy and their family come out for a holiday will be one of them - you got on so well with Roy and Zac in particular but I loved to see you enjoying spending time with all of them, and playing with and chatting to the other kids in the evenings.

You've been to mini golf a few times this year with Nana and Grandad, and one time you got a hole in one!  

Until this year you had never been on a boat, and this year you've been on two!  Both times you got off for a swim and loved it.  Talking of swimming, you are amazing at that now - you ended the summer last year by taking off your armbands and being able to swim in the shallow end, or near the edge but now you can jump in anywhere, swim under and over water and not panic. 

You can also do an amazing flying squirrel jump into the pool

Hope you have an EPIC birthday and enjoy your Minecraft birthday party!

Lots of love and huggles,   Mum xx
