"a portrait of each of my children, once each week, in 2017"

Jaden: You were in heaven at the chocolate shop on Friday night and were completely overwhelmed with all the choices. "I'm going to be here a while," you told us. ;) You eventually settled on a cup of chocolate gelato and a UNI-stamped milk chocolate. You've made some new friends in the neighborhood, too. A couple of boys a couple blocks away now walk through several backyards to get to our house in order to shoot hoops in our driveway and play catch in the empty lot across the street. New friends are good because we just learned that our neighbor Bryce is moving to Wisconsin in June!

Brandon: It's spring time at the shop which means a new litter of kitties! Lucy's sister had four little babies a few weeks ago - three girls and a boy - and you love going out to check on them throughout the week. And since Mommy was on a work trip last week, you got to go to work with Daddy every morning before school to get your kitten fix.
