Crazy, but Charlotte got snow in November! Now that is just not the norm here, typically we are still wearing shorts and t-shirts in November. Although it was not much, a light dusting, the boys were so excited. The thought of no school raced through their heads as the flakes came down. But the snow stopped as quickly as it came.

Ryan's 4th grade class studyed the Cherokees. They broke up into groups and each had to research and do a project. Ryan and his friend James McKenna decided to research Cherokee tribal roles. They each did their research on the internet and then worked together on the weekend to put together the poster board.

I wanted to have a big party for Ryan's 10th birthday but didn't want to break the bank. I saw a deal on LivingSocial for mobile laser tag. They come to your home and set up barriers and the kids get to choose their weapons and they get to run around for 1 1/2 hour. SOLD! This was perfect for a bunch of 9 and 10 year old boys! Dustin the owner of SpecialOps Mobile Laser tag was awesome! He was great with the kids and had them organized into teams. Ryan had the biggest smile on his face the entire party!
Ryan wanted to have a sleepover after the party but I learned from child #1 that having 9-10 boys sleepover at a time is not good for anyone especially the parents. Just because it is called a sleepover doesnt mean they are sleeping. I think the whole point is to stay up until the last one is standing. So I let him invite 2 of the boys over to sleep, much more manageable!
I am now the parent of 2 boys in the double digits, 10 and 12 years old! How'd that happen?!

Don and I decided we need to entertain more so I invited some friends over, well I guess I didn't keep count because when all was said and done I had invited 15 people over for Saturday night, 8 adults and 7 kids, all boys and they all said YES! Age ranging from 9- 14 years old! Can I just tell you we had the best time and laughed so much, my stomach hurt!

Nick made it through boot camp in Fort Leonard Wood, MO. He says it wasn't that bad, we are proud of him for following his dreams. Don went out to be part of Nick's special day, graduation from boot camp!
