Super Henry

Ode to my Superhero Son:  You are 4 now.  It has been so much fun to see you morph into a different person...literally.  Not only are you a totally awesome cool boy, you have the abilities to change into different Superheros everyday.  One day you are Batman, the next day you are Spiderman, Superman gets thrown in there and the newest is Captain America and He-Man also makes a debut.  I can't believe how smart you are figuring all of those roles out.  It makes my head spin just thinking about it.  I have to be on top of my game in the morning when you are trying to find clothes.  Emotions run high if you aren't able to find jeans to wear with your superhero shirts.  They have to match.  Shortly put, you are a crazy superhero freaky deak!

You have changed so much since you started your "preschool" at Cindy's house. You know your numbers, alphabet, how to spell your name and write all but the letter "Y".  You know your dinner prayers and can say the "Our Father".  You are sensitive about getting your clothes wet.  If even a drop of water hits your shirt, a new one has to be brought out, thus a new superhero has to be introduced.  You say funny things like "I have a feeling that that is not a good idea" and always try to be accomodating to your sister's needs when she is crying or unsure about something.  You are an awesome BIG Brother.  Except for the times when you try to steal a toy from her by replacing it with something that you just got done playing with. 

We love you Henry MacArthur.  You are the man. You fill so many "man" roles but there is only ONE
Henry MacArthur Bright. 

On a side note: We spent your 4th Birthday celebrating in Nebraska City at the Tree Adventure.  You studied the tourism brochure for it for months and it was decided we would go here.  Great place to spend time with family, have a picnic, stay the night (Lied Lodge) and create new family memories that will last a lifetime.  Love ya buddy.
