Ho ho ho! We hope your holidays are off to a great start! Just wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas and share the highlights of our year:
Leah is now 11 and in 5th grade. She’s had a busy year with drama club, guitar lessons, student council, basketball, volleyball, her pet sitting business, and being a news anchor for her school’s in-house TV station. This summer, she went to Space Camp again (the robotics camp) plus YMCA camp, church camp and a cooking camp. Leah wants to be a chef someday and loves American Girl dolls, swimming in her mermaid tail and reading Percy Jackson novels.
Michael is 8 and in 2nd grade. When he isn’t researching dinosaurs, he is developing elaborate schemes to build a dinosaur zoo on a hovercraft in space. He also started a ‘dangerous reptile removal’ business – no customers as yet. Michael stayed busy this year with basketball, swimming, Space Camp, church camp, running club and football (with Mommy coaching)! He wants to be a biologist someday and loves reading Harry Potter books.
Bryan and I stay busy between the kids, work, church, family and volunteering – but we’re lazy sometimes, too, and enjoyed several beach trips this year with my family and with friends. Bryan has his final round of Lemtrada in December and then we wait for the next medical breakthrough in treating MS. We lost Bryan’s mom this summer which has been so hard – we look forward to spending the holidays with his dad and the whole family.
