Many people have asked me where our annual Christmas letter was this year. Honestly, I didn't think people actually read it; at times it seemed to be more of a way for me to reflect on the year in an "extroverted way". I did have this letter typed, but I didn't include it this year with our cards. Here it is below, for those of you that have asked-
JACOB- our first-born is 7 and in 1st grade. We are so proud of him for being a leader at school and friend to all. He loves math (obviously from his dad), and P.E. He is learning more words to spell, read and write, which makes ‘code parent spelling’ more difficult since he can understand out conversations. Over the summer, Jacob played in his first baseball league, coached by Brenton. He’s a great hitter, but not a fan of playing the field (not enough action), so we are grooming him to be a catcher. J His swimming skills also boomed- swimming in the deep end of pools (with supervision) with no life jacket is new- I was amazed when he showed me he could do it, but not that surprised since he would swim everyday all day if he had the chance. Jacob also continued to ride his bike, climb trees in the yard, and perfect his Jedi skills. He’s growing up so fast!
Merry Christmas and Happy 2011!
