Hey, all!
Here’s what’s been happening:

James, at the statue of….someone….at the FC Dallas Stadium. :)

1) Soccer! Thanks to one of several amazing websites, I was able to get resold tickets to the FC Dallas Soccer game for less than a quarter what it would have cost to by them retail! James chose soccer for his big event (I took Dan to Hockey, Chris to the Mavericks (B-Ball). JEanna went to Stomp, and Susanna is looking at concerts)
Good news: Dallas Won!

FC Dallas- great game!
After that, the boys decided to spend the Easter break clowning around and building…a tree fort! A visit to Home Depot for a little wood, and Chris went to it with a will and passion, and with a little (small amount) of help from me, made a very level tree fort in the big tree in our back yard! Future engineer? We’ll see….
IMG_0756IMG_0769…now, they use it to jump off from onto the Trampoline! Yep, they get their mom a little scared….until they go ther to take the plunge, too! :D

Next, I got to see my favorite comedian: Christopher Titus, when he came to Dallas! Not only did I manage to get front-row center seats (again, thank you, resale sites! Dallas loves ya!), but he met up with every single fan who came to the show afterwards….including me! Whoo hoo!

 

Got my online ticket!

Got to meet him! Got two fist bumps! He was tired, but good to every fan. Great guy, Titus! :D

CHRIS WAS A WINNER! He led his Middle School B-Ball team at the Highlands to its first Division Victory in the team’s history! We had a great time seeing him play. He’s worked SO hard to get good at b-ball, and his grades too. He was in danger of falling through the cracks at one point when he was in middle school, but now he stays after school to get his best possible grades, and may hit the honor roll for the first time ! Great job, Chris!!!

Jeanna, watch Chris the champ!

Winner!

…Gonna write more later. For now, look at how they’ve grown!

Are you eating your wheatie, James? :D
