One of the things I love about being a stay-at-home mom is having all the kids at our house to play. I know it sometimes drives Mark crazy because the house gets trashed that much faster, but I love knowing who's playing with who and what they're playing.
The neighbors behind us have three boys roughly the ages of Cam, Alex, and Ian. A day off school equaled a house full of boys!
The boys enjoying the trampoline (from last Christmas that we finally set up).
Our D.A.R.E. graduate! The boys are lucky their school has the resources to bring in some positive outside influences. (Kids-n-Power, for example, that the boys participated in the first year.) Fifth graders go through the D.A.R.E. program to get ready for middle school and the additional pressures they'll likely face there.
And the boy lost another tooth! With three of them losing teeth, the poor tooth fairy is going to be broke, not to mention tired, LOL.
