Benjamin read 600 minutes and got to go on a fun date with mom and dad. We went to Mongo's for lunch and TCBY's for a treat. It was so fun to celebrate Benjamin's reading!

Benjamin wrapped up another great season of soccer with a party at the park. We couldn't have done it without great coaches! He had a fun time and really improved his soccer skills!

We always love that our neighborhood sponsors The Great Outdoors Concert in May. This is a great time to see our neighbors, listen to good music, let the kids run around and play and eat really delicious food! This year the three oldest boys participated in the pie eating contest. They all did great! Andrew won for his age group.

For Christmas, the three oldest got tickets to see Wicked. We finally got to go see the musical and couldn't imagine how much we'd love it. It surpassed our expectations. We've been singing along to all of the songs and can't wait for another chance to see it.

Andrew wrapped up another season of soccer. He had a good season despite the fact that his team didn't win very much. They did well during their last tournament and took second in their bracket. He's planning on taking the next year off from soccer and try other sports like football and lacrosse.

On his last day of school, his teacher Miss Erin painted his face so he could be a super hero. We played games, ate a cupcake and enjoyed being with our friends.

We celebrated my dad's birthday just like we did last year, by making a German chocolate cake and eating it while we watched videos of Grandpa. We sure do miss him!
