                 We have had a few playdates recently to pass the gloomy winter blahs away..always a fun time at the "Four Crazy Kids" house!! The Fab 4 have been taking turns having playdates and most of the time we have sibling sets come that are friends with two or more of our kids! Usually that means 6 kids and that are  all under 8 years old! It is a bit wild and crazy and LOUD, but so much fun (mostly for them but I am a trooper). I remember having friends over and being invited to a friends house! It brings back lots of memories with my best friend, Sara ( she still is even after 25 years). We hope to be making some life-long friends

Awards galore!

We are so proud to announce that Ace won a few BIG awards these last two weeks!
 First, Ace received an award at this seasons swim team banquet. He won the "Most Points, 8 and Under Boys" award! He worked so hard this season and it payed off! We were shocked and surprised but mostly beaming with pride for him!!
                                                                     His ribbon!
                                                                     Signing autographs!
                                                                   Such a happy guy that night!

Secondly, today he was awarded the "Student of the Month" at school. His teacher called me and told me that she was awarding this to him and that she is really proud of him and really enjoys having him in her class. She went on to say that he deserved it and that he is such a good boy and so considerate of his peers.She said that that he is the reserved,silent type and so sweet and helpful among some other compliments.Once again I was surprised, not that he was given this award, but because he is so wild and full of craziness at home...I did not see this coming! I feel so proud of my oldest and the Lil man he is becoming! ONE PROUD MOMMA THIS MONTH!!!
