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

Jaden: You had a lot of fun at Hick's Place this week - shooting bow and arrows at fake alligators, playing laser tag in the woods and catching fish from the pond. It's hard to believe that there's just two weeks left of day camp this summer, and the jury is still out on just how many more summers of daycare we're going to have with you. Your daycare years might be drawing to a close pretty soon. How is that possible?!

Brandon: You have your first baseball game next week, but after two weeks of practices, we've had to work on your attitude a little bit! There are a couple of girls on your team, and you feel as though they are cramping your style and you keep wishing you could be on an all-boy team! I keep telling you that the girls deserve to play, too, but that if you stick with it for one more year, you'll get to be with all boys next summer. ;) We toured your new school this week and all fell in love with it. You are most excited about having your very own iPad in your classroom - and about the library center with its cozy bean bag loft you can sit in as a special reward. :)
