They have also decided they want to play separate sports. Sam-soccer. Luke-tennis. But I am torturing them both with piano lessons! They started this week.
Last week, Brad and I took a trip to Orlando. We did the parks WITHOUT the kids. Pure fun. Harry Potter at Universal Studios was the highlight. (Crowded but worth the wait!) We really are kids at heart. Thanks, Babe for planning. Thanks to Nana and Aunt Geesh for babysitting.
Em chose to choreograph a roller-blade number for the Activity Girls' Talent Night at church. She performed beautifully, especially considering the fact that the day before she had five (!) teeth pulled. Two of the teeth removed had crowns. Nice. I love paying to have all that expensive work taken out. By the time this kid is 18, she will have a million dollar smile. Literally.
Jake has become a sixth grade party animal. The doorbell rings non-stop with friends asking to play. He bikes to the park everyday with his buddies, has all kinds of birthday party invites and a great scout troop. For the first time in his life, Jake has an age-appropriate social life and I am so happy for him.
Life is good.
