February: We took Emerson skiing for the first time. She cried pretty much the entire day. Angie was heard yelling "Suck it up Eme, this is a fun filled family activity that we are going to be enjoying for years to come"!
March: Graham raced in a triathlon. At least he didn't throw-up in the ocean this year.
April: We went to a Padres game. This was the record-setting 22 inning game-a whopping 6 hours and 16 minutes. Didn't go to another game for the rest of the season.
May: Atticus finally says "mum"-he still doesn't say dad.
June: Michelle (a family friend) moved in with us. Her parents moved to New York and she didn't want to finish her senior year at a new high school, so she moved in with us. We love her and she has become a part of our family.
July: We went to Megan's wedding (Graham's sister). I wondered why the groom's dad looked so much like my dad; turns out he is my dad's first cousin.
August: Emerson started 1st grade at her Spanish immersion school. Her spanish is getting really good. Thank goodness for the internet and free translation software; without it I couldn't help her with homework.
September: Graham started community college. He enrolled in one class...soccer. Graham and I went to Chicago for our 11th anniversary. Atticus is now calling Graham "momo."
October: Yeah! Atti finally called Graham "dad." Marcus, Michelle's brother, has now become a permanent fixture on our couch. Graham broke his foot in soccer class. He realized he can't keep up with the 19 year old students that call him "Blue."
November: Atticus turned 2 years old. Emerson barfed in her class. She told us, "Don't worry, I didn't throw up on the floor, I made it to the garbage can"! Graham got pulled over 3 times within 20 minutes while driving home from Utah. Good new, he only got 1 ticket.
December: Emerson turned 7, but going on 14. Marcus moved to New York--Graham cried.
We feel blessed having you in our lives. We love you and may the spirit of this season carry you throughout the coming year.
Love Graham, Angie, Emerson and Atticus
