One, Two, Three .. YIPEE!

This weekend was full of a bit of pride.

Child #1: Performed for a full house at "his best concert ever" and was able to distribute his first CD to all of his "fans". I think the CD turned out splendid and you can check it out on

He is the lead singer and wrote two of the songs on the CD. Atta boy Matty!

Child #2: Received a letter from her college exclaiming that her "superior academic achievement qualified her for the President's Honor Roll!" Woo hoo to a 4.0 grade point average! Atta girl Kacey!

Child #3: Attended his first Varsity Football Banquet where he received his Letter!






















I LOVE football and it has been amazing for my #3. Mark my words, a couple of these boys are going to go far. It's incredible to see such athleticism in such young men. Oh ya, anybody a Raven's fan? The kid on the right is Todd Heap's lil' bro. All extremely stellar boys and I'm proud of all of them. Atta boy Keater!

So far we have a musician, a scholar and an athlete in the family. I wonder what #4 and #5 have in store for us!

Raven fan, hello? Did you forget that i live in the heart of Baltimore where everyone knows Todd Heap is a star? Loved this post by you! You have every right to be proud of those kiddos. As always, I can only hope to do it halfway as well as you have!
