Today is your 7th birthday and as I look back on the last year I am in awe of how much you have grown and matured. So much has happened this year that it's hard to know where to begin. You started first grade in your very own class. Your teacher Mrs Bruski says you are a very helpful and wonderful student to have in her classroom. Your reading has improved so much since the beginning of the school year. You started out needing a little extra help but have worked very hard to bring your reading scores up. As of yesterday, you are now at level 24 for reading which is well into the second grade! We are so proud of your hard work this year Katie. I know you will have great success in your life because you have learned the meaning of hard work early on. You were also the only one to get all 1's on your last report card, great job! You have taught me and your siblings more than once how to do your math homework when we didn't have a clue. This year you started taking tennis lessons. We were looking for something you could do all on your own and tennis is what you chose. You have learned how to hit the ball, serve, volley, and even use your backhand! This summer you are taking lessons again and seem to really enjoy it. You continue to play soccer with Helena. This time your team name is the Purple Shooters and I am your coach again. We don't win or score very much but you are a very good defender and have saved many goals from being scored on our team. You also continue to dance but I think you do that more for your sister than because you like it. You had a chance to go to cheer camp this year as well. Hanging out with other girls and being silly seemed to be fun for you, I don't know how much you really liked the cheering part of it though. Swimming still seems to be your passion. Hopefully this next year we will see you move up a level or two and be able to join the Dolphin Swim Club which is what you say you really want to do. You now weigh 77 pounds and are 4 feet 1 1/2 inches tall. Daddy and I are excited to watch you continue to grow and excel in everything you do.
Pat and I have been married since October of 2004. After 2 years of dealing with infertility issues we found out in October of 2007 that we were pregnant. It wasn't too long afterward that we found out we were expecting triplets. As of May 29, 2008 we are the proud parents of triplets! 2 girls and a boy!!
