My boys

I realized that this was never posted last night so I'm going to send it through now.
I'm sorry for the delay! It's sort of crafting related... more like proud mommy moments. :)

My boys are rough and tough, silly and goofy, adorable and cranky, crazy full of energy... all at the same time. They never cease to amaze me.

I just wanted to share a couple of things that I am so proud of that each of the boys did this week... aside from being told that my 4 yr old has a swing like Tiger Wood's. Seriously? Get outta here! lol!

Keiji came running to me, very proudly showing me his first written words.

Here he wrote his name:


Here Keiji sounded out and wrote "CAT"


Now how cool is that?!

Last night, my husband showed me something Ken had "secretly" worked on in his room for about a half hour. Get this... a pop-up card! *thud*



He's in Kindergarten and he's making pop-up cards better than me!


Oh, hey! I found a couple of pictures of Keiji's first week of golf lessons.



He has been begging to play golf since he was about two years old. I thought he was too young then. I waited until he was sure this is what he wanted to do. I don't golf much . My father loves the game but can't really play any more. My in-laws go golfing regularly. Maybe it just skipped a generation but the kid's a natural! :)

Thanks for letting me share!

Hi Erin,

I don't have an email address to reply to for you so I am posting here to answer your question.

My boys take free golf lessons on Tues. and Thurs. (4p) at the Pruneridge Golf Club, Saratoga Ave. & Pruneridge Ave. Children under 15 are free. There are 2 coaches that split the group into two groups of about 10, sometimes more. There's also a Saturday class at 11a.

Isn't that the sweetest? I love the card he made for his dad! He gets his cardmaking talent from his mom!

Oh, what sweet memories! They are fantastic! I've never made a pop-up card.
