Because I never want to forget

I was cleaning out all the papers, projects, and things from last school year when I found my Mother's Day gift from Noah. It was awesome. Just so you know, grammar and spelling have not been fixed. (I wrote my response in the parenthesis).

The Karate Kid

Noah has been watching Karate Kid movies like crazy this summer. It all started on vacation when he and I went to watch the new Karate Kid (while dad and the twins watched Toy Story 3). We both loved it. I was a little skeptical going into the movie (I was a huge Ralph Macchio fan back in the day. I remember cutting his pictures out of Teen Beat for my wall!), but the movie did not disappoint. It was great and Noah has since watched the original Karate Kid and The Karate Kid II. After watching all of these movies, Noah has decided he needs to train for his next big fight. He decided to start his training in the pouring rain yesterday.

We are home. And I am exhausted. I have piles of laundry to do and piles of sand to sweep up. We had a blast in Michigan.

Dear July

Dear July,
We miss your friend June already. June was very good to us. We want her to last longer. July will be very busy and bring us closer to August. Which means school and two little boys going off to Kindergarten!

In June we rode on four wheelers

and two wheels!

In June we gave up water wings

and practiced our diving skills.
Lots of energy was burned off in June. August 11th is the end of summer. Please July go slowly!

Sincerely, Denise
