I feel like I don't talk enough about how amazing Jasper is. I mean really, he's amazing. So I'm going to take 2 minutes to do so.
Every time I ask him to go straighten up a room, or pick something up/put something away he does it immediately, and usually asking what else he can do to help.
He is kind. So kind.
He's the best big brother. Tindra is so lucky to have him. He reads to her, asks to get her dressed, stands up for her, he's just the best brother all around. He loves her so deep.
On Saturday he played an entire soccer game (with no break because only 3 other team mates showed up) in freezing rain (literally, it was 38 degrees and windy) and only once complained about his hands being cold. I was huddled under two blankets and an umbrella and complaining in my head the entire time.
He's so darn smart. A few months ago he was advanced to a spelling challenge list at school which comes with weekly hard spelling tests with words like, chimpanzee and incredulous, yeah I have to double check his spelling test because I'M not always positive on the spelling. And last week, he took another reading test that shows that he's at the top of his class and reading at a third grade level. IN FIRST GRADE! And as one of the youngest first graders there! He's 6 years old and I'm quite sure smarter than I ever was in elementary school.
