Always Crazy, Always Fun, Always Love

Ray Romano once compared life with twins to living in a frat house. As he put it, "no one sleeps, there is a lot of noise and a lot of throwing up." I find this very true with 4 young children, including twins. However, though things are always crazy, we always try to have fun and, most certainly, always love each other.

Let's Hear It For The Boys!!!

My boys have been up to some major fun the last couple weeks and I just had to share. They work so hard going to school and getting their work done that they deserved to be rewarded. Now some of you may think that Kindergarten and 2nd grade would not be that big of a deal- but oh, how times have changed! Kenny, who is in second grade, is doing things in school that we didn't do until 4th grade! He has at least an hour of homework every night and has to read for at least 25 minutes a day in addition to that. Even Jacob, in Kindergarten, has daily homework. It is a lot of pressure for a kid.

Two Saturdays ago, my dad had to take my mom to a meeting in Dayton and thought it would be fun to take Kenny and Jacob to the Air Force Museum there while she was in her meeting. They had to get up at 5:30am to go because of the time of my mom's meeting. I was a little worried about getting them out of bed that early- knowing how they are sometimes at 8 am trying to get them up for school. But, nothing to worry about- they jumped out of bed and were ready to go in no time!! They got to climb in and out of all kinds of Air Force planes and did so many activities. Here is just a sampling:

Introducing- the President and Vice President of 2048:

This looks like my kind of cookie- one as big as your head!!

And, Kenny was sooo excited to get to take a picture with a "real soldier" (as he called him....)

Then, this past Saturday, Aaron heard about a local orchestra playing and thought the boys would love it. They were performing the Gustav Holst "planets" symphony as well as a selection of the Star Wars Symphony by John Williams. So so so perfect for all 3 "boys."
They were also so excited that they got to meet some of the Star Wars characters:Talk about kind of creepy....., but they thought it was awesome- as you can tell by the excitement on their faces. These characters even walked around during the performance of the orchestra, doing moves with their light sabers and much more.....
Thanks, Dad and Aaron for the wonderful days you gave the boys- they love you so much!!
