But the has been extended into the graduate school of Harvard this year she's only eight. We've decided to keep her in school one more year is announcing they put the bad stuff on FaceBook. Unfair that good stuff in the latter the bad stuff you see on things well it's frustrating when you read these letters because you always feel like your family doesn't measure up you know because. Randy has accepted an invitation to go off in the PGA this year he's twelve and had. God Nicholas best score ever on our local golf coolers and I.

I was our pride and joy and the source of our drinking problem how. Hunter is our energetic yet surprisingly on athletic nine year old who just got cut from a soccer team that doesn't even keep score in their game. How does that even happen. He spends most of his time on his iPad and said his first swear word this year at all and very exciting and that's okay.
