Updates and personalities

Summer is here and we are busy. Family Update:

Caleb won 2nd place in kid wrestling this year...he did a phenomenal job. This summer he has been in wrestling, jujitsu, junior golf, and summer camp. Right now is now in Texas staying with his Uncle Jeff. He loves hangin with his cousins Layla and Rocco. He has a wrestling camp in Iowa in mid-July, and then the football season starts at the end of July. I've said it before...and I'll say it again -- this kid is busy.

Grace loves her summer camp. She has been taking swimming lessons for the past week and has been making great progress. She comes home and shares all of her accomplishments. She is such a girly girl, and would love to start modeling. She is a beautiful little girl with personality--- I think she just may be famous one day. I can't keep her out of her platform sandals!

Ronan started t-ball this year, and he did a wonderful job. There were times in which he thought the dirt was more entertaining than the game. He is such a little athlete --- scooping up the balls, hitting to the outfield, and even running the bases. He recently turned 4 on June 28th. We had a pool party at our neighborhood pool. This kids is a fish & a dare devil. He literally will do front flips off of the diving board.

Lucie is...well one of a kind. She is actually a perfect combination of all of the kids. She is smart like Caleb, beautiful & prissy like Grace, and sweet and athletic like Ronan. She truly is the "baby" of the family...she has everyone wrapped around her tiny finger.

Bryan has been training like a mad man. Biking, weight lifting, cardio, swimming. He and his friends are training for adventure races. He will be participating in a 40 mile bike ride this weekend in Ottawa to benefits cerebral palsy. On top of all of that, he finds the time to spend with the kids by taking them on bike rides, to the pool, games & practices. We even find time for family movie night...which entails the latest horror flick. Yes, I let my kids watch that shit!!

Me -- well, I am just busy taking care of the kids & working. I have my monthly bunco night with a great group of crazy ladies. My friends (aka The B's) have gone out numerous times to those Bitches! Bryan and I have even been able to sneak away to enjoy a dinner for two --- not six. Life is good.

The House: The yard is in and the landscaping is almost completed. Whew!! Hard frickin work.
