13 of Jackson’s Favorite Pastimes

  1. Working with his Dad – Jackson loves to be just like his Dad. He likes to wear shorts in the cold – just like his Dad. He wants to be an electrician – just like his Dad. And when we are at the cabin, Jackson loves to “work” alongside his Dad.
  2. Playing with his Uncle Rob – Jackson adores his uncle (Susan’s husband) and has since he was an infant. Even as a baby and toddler, Rob would often be the only other person that Jackson would go to other then me. Rob is like the older brother that Jackson has always wanted.
  3. Playing Star Wars – Although he has never seen even a second of the movies, all his friends and he are obsessed with playing Star Wars. (His church friends too.) He asked Santa himself for a light saber – so what could I do? Now I have also allowed four little Star Wars figures. But with toys or not, he and his friends can play Star Wars for hours.
  4. Being Julia’s “Big Brother” – Jackson loves to be with Julia. He knows that he is her cousin, but he loves to pretend that they are siblings.
  5. Reading about Dinosaurs – Jackson has lots of dinosaur books and toys. Lately every night we must read a dinosaur book.
  6. Learning French – My husband Phil (Jackson’s Dad) is from Quebec and we are teaching Jackson French. Although some days he isn’t in the mood and some books and cd’s he doesn’t like as much, Jackson loves to learn French. He will be attending French Immersion when he goes to school.
  7. Crafts – While Jackson doesn’t like to color for very long, he does love to make things, especially gluing and cutting with scissors. He has been a whiz with scissors for a couple of years already.
  8. Cooking and Baking – Jackson loves to create things and make up his own recipes.
  9. Preschool – Jackson has the greatest preschool with the most wonderful teachers. He just loves it.
  10. Giving hugs – Jackson has always been a snuggler and loves to give hugs, especially to me and to his Grandma.
  11. Playing with his Friends – Jackson is so social. He would be surrounded by friends all day if he could. His best friends are twins, Leith and Lachlan, and Rhys.
  12. Hanging out with Brad – Our neighbors have a teenage son named Brad. Jackson loves to spend time with Brad, playing basketball or just hanging out.
  13. Spending time with his cousins – Jackson has five cousins: Julia, Noah and Matthew, and Chantal and Luc. Jackson goes crazy with joy when he gets to play with his cousins.

    Ha! I was so taken by the photo of the little lady in sunglasses, I commented on that post instead of this one! Silly me!

    Anyway, thanks for stopping by my T13 earlier, and I do like your list. :) Btw, I’m pushing 60 y/o and I still like my dinosaur books. :)

    Don’t let anyone tell you he’ll outgrow those hugs–my boys are 11 & 16, and they still like hugs. :)

    He will, though, grow up much faster than you can believe. *sigh*

    I used to bury dried chicken leg bones in my little (now big) boy’s sandbox so he could be an archaeologist and dig up “dinosorn bones”. :-)

    Jackson sounds like a well rounded fun to be with boy! Bet he likes the attention too! Great share and thanks for stopping by my T13!

  5. says

    He sounds like a great little guy :smile:.
    Enjoy the ‘snuggle times’ – when they are older they don’t even want you to hug them (I know :sad:)…
    Thank you for stopping by my Thanfuls this morning.

    Love, LOVE, LOVE those hugs!

    Come on over to my blog–I’ve started a party for another son! Dawn’s son has returned home!

    Cutie pie, I just love the fresh outlook of kiddies!
    My TT is up, and I am trying to get Mr. Linky on mine, but when I try to register it says “unidentified: host” or something similar . . . help?

    Sounds like a fun, sweet little guy you have. Justice loves hanging with him mom and dad, crawling around, eating, and playing. I know we will add many of the things you listed in years to come. My list is up!
