"Mommy, I love soccer."

"Mommy, I love soccer," Brogan tells me. In his last game, he enthusiastically proclaimed that he would be scoring SIX goals. I believe the final score was 8-2. Brogan's final score was 7-1, so he got his six. His excitement for games is a FAR CRY from the tantrums he used to have on game days. I am glad he is having so much fun!
 
 
 
 
SEVEN goals... only one for the other team!

Kindergarten Days

First Day of Kindergarten
 
 
Ayden & Brogan with Ayden's kindergarten teacher.
 
Brogan looked forward to walking home with his big brother
at the end of the school day.
Ayden's teacher presented him with the
Responsibility Award in front of the entire school.
Thanksgiving Lunch
Ayden chose his Native American name: Tiger Heart.
Christmas Party
 
 
Ayden made his Captain America gingerbread man
as a school homework project.
The gingerbread house was a fun party activity...
especially for Brogan; he ate most of the decorations.
