It’s hard to believe that the school year is over already! Gracie graduated from kindergarten a couple of weeks ago. I told Gracie (and the teacher) that some people have learned everything they need to get by in life in kindergarten. In fact, there have been books written about this! So I told them on the last day of class – that we expected BIG things (from both of them) for her final day!
Dominick & Gracie just finished up with their T-Ball and gymnastics too. It is a lot of fun to watch them grow in confidence AND ability! So now starts the summer routine of swimming lessons and some day trips.
From left to right – Here is a picture of my smallest angel at my grandmother’s house on the back swing. In the middle is Gracie. She was invited to a birthday party for a friend and they had Animal Adventure come and put on a show with various live animals. Annie LOVES bunnies – so Gracie was excited to have her picture taken with the bunny so we could text it to Annie! And finally – Dominick at his pre-school graduation with his proud mother. If he is anything like his mom & dad – he better get used to wearing a cap & gown!
July 16th marks our 10 year anniversary for Melani and me. We’ve had a lot happen in those 10 years – death of her father, a couple of miscarriages, birth of 3 beautiful children, house renovations and a couple of major business transitions. I’m going to be out of town right around our anniversary to deal with some thorny family issues – because it is the only time I could co-ordinate the trip with my sister Michele. So if you find yourself with just a spare minute – consider surprising my beautiful wife with a Happy Anniversary text ((775) 629-XXxx)) , email (mxxXxx@juno.com), or just leave a comment on our newly revamped YouTube page. Just hit the following QR Code, or type in http://www.youtube.com/user/chipomite . There’s a cute video (Time Lapsed) of me cutting Dominick’s hair. I hear a challenge has been issued (& accepted) that if we get 10,000 views on that video by October 1st I have to let Dominick cut my hair! Thank you & enjoy the rest of the summer!
