Brag Blog

I am always complaining about all the things that I have to do, and how crazy the boys are. Well I love my boys so much, and I want to brag about all the good things they do.

Jordan: He just got straight A's. He passed his reading goal and reached 114.5%. This is a big deal, because he really does not like to read. He is doing great in baseball. In fact this morning he got a triple. A couple more inches and it would have gone over the fence. He loves to cook, and makes dinner and treats often. He is such a helpful kid.

Andrew: He also got straight S's. They don't get actual grades yet, but he is doing really well. His teacher said she loves his funny sense of humor, and that his writing concepts are very deep. He is taking art classes and loves them. Andrew is my sweetie, and Carter's best friend.

Clay: Clay had all above average scores on his report card! He has learned to read and loves it. He writes all the time too. He plays hard every day, and on the weekends he plays guitar hero. He has now passed several levels. It is so fun to watch him jam!

Carter: My little boy is growing up! He has all sorts of funny things to say. Talk this child does all the time. He is a deep thinker and can figure everything out. He's really into snails and making sure they are safe and have homes. He loves to be outside.

So as you can see I am a very lucky mom. School tracked off on Friday. We are so excited for the break. We are going to have fun enjoying this California weather!

I have been getting requests to post more. Well I think you will understand why I don't post that often. I have 4 boys. It's flu season, which means that at any given time someone will throw up. It's usually Carter. The flu also means bronchitis and coughs that last for 3 weeks. All of us have that cough. Baseball started. Jordan is on the minor A's. I am the team mom. Team mom does not mean "plan the snacks" anymore. It means meetings, fundraisers(at least 4), food planning, banner making, party planning, score keeping organization, coach's assistant, parent calmer and about 1000 emails a day. Seriously. It alsomeans either a game or practice every day. Jordan is also doing scouts. Andrew is doing art classes, which really only entails my driving skills. Also he has cub scouts, which involves keeping up. I also have Clay. I am also potty training a 3 year old, who refuses to use the toilet. I know they say when they are ready it will happen. Well I am ready. So it needs to be done. I also am in charge of teaching primary. So I need to have entertaining lessons for about 40 kids every Sunday. I am also planning the Primary Talent Show. I am planning it will the 11 year old boys. I keep having to remind them that security and hand cuffs are not necessary to control the small children. I also have to do the ward Easter Egg hunt. We will be out of town for it, but it all has to be ready and organized before we leave. And, I also have Clay. The End. (oh wait. I know that you are thinking where is Frank. Frank helps a ton, but he also works 7 days a week right now. ) Did I mention that I have Clay?
