Four reasons I am smiling this Mother’s Day 2012.

Brayden is Six!

Brayden Kenneth turns six today, May 5th.  Hip hip hooray for Brady!  We are so thankful for his life, his passions, his fun-loving self.  He is funny, creative, curious, bright, adorable, witty, compassionate, thoughtful, sporty, and helpful.  He is unique in so many ways!  We’ll have fun celebrating him with soccer games, good food, family fun and our charter school’s Strawberry Festival happening on his special day.

Here are some fun pictures of our Brayden….

Keep spreading those wings, Brayden.  We love you so much!

Madelyn’s Coastal Adventure

Madelyn and her class took off for the coast last week.  She was able to be away for two days without the rest of us.  She and her class camped and explored Pea Island, Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, Jockey’s Ridge, some Wright Brothers historic sights, Chicamacomico Lifesaving Station and Frisco Beach.  Not a bad field trip for fourth graders.  🙂

We are so thankful she is back safe and has had this wonderful experience.  She had an amazing time and took a few photos along the way.  I will share a few glimpses into her getaway.
