The Home of Daddy's Day Dare! ~ I am just trying to stay above water

I may need some more rest…..

Hello everyone!

How is your winter going?

If I hear one remark about ‘global warming’ this summer I may choke someone!

Yes we have been bundled up, like the rest of you this winter, and not being as busy as we would like.

But finally this past week we had a wee bit of good news. Dylan received her 3rd report card for the year.  That’s right, all A’s again. She did great! She even received the highest marks in PE and Music.

Possibly the best news on the survey though was on the back of the report card where the teacher rates everyone on Personal and Interactive skills. Dylan received all A’s there as well. Her teacher goes on to mention, “Dylan is at, or above grade level, in all areas. She shows leadership daily in all activities in the class room.”

You go girl! We are so proud of her! ~There’s some new news, right?

So Friday she asked if she could go to Chucky Cheese and help ‘celebrate with her sister and a few of her friends from school. Sure we thought? She’s earned it and she also has a big day coming up.

She had a great time! She played with her friends. Ate some pizza. Collected a gazillion tickets from playing the games. It was a lot of fun…

Its like old times here..in this ride...

Saturday she invited those same school friends to our now monthly ‘Vacation’ Bible School at our church. Again, they had a good time, making crafts, playing games and decorating cupcakes I hear. (Skylar was using the icing for lipstick). She was worn out!

Sunday was Stingray Hockey night again! Dylan had won the ‘trifecta’ by reading 3 books in one week, good enough for free tickets to the local hockey team. So she and I spent Sunday afternoon at the hockey game. Dylan claims she is getting to be quite an expert at getting around our local coliseum with so many trips that she has made there recently. .(2 hockey games, the circus, and helping daddy with an American Lung Cancer event there.) She insisted I was going the wrong way in the parking lot at one point

All in all it was a pretty fun, busy, and rewarding weekend for me. Ahhh, I mean a fun weekend for her! Lots of good clean fun! Now, the only thing she has left to look forward to is her BIRTHDAY tomorrow!

…I may need to get to bed early tonight!

  14. Congrats to you and your daughter Maria! Great news! Where is she leaning to? Close to mom? I hope I still have time to save and share with little Dylan. I keep joking with her that she is not allowed to get any bigger or older. She smiles and tells me she can’t help it. I tell her being 4 years old for the next 20 years would be OK for me. So proud for you and your daughter. Great job! I hope you hae the best weekend! Thanks for dropping by….

  17. Hahaha! Happy birthday Dylan! 🙂 🙂

  18. Wow, that’s a lot of celebrating to be had at the 3D household! You should definitely get some rest! That’s wonderful about her grades!
    We celebrated some good news too in that my daughter has been accepted to 8 colleges and is waiting on 2 more. She got in to some of her reach schools (Villanova & Holy Cross). All her hard work is paying off! Now we just have to take a look at the $$$$$s so she can make a decision before May 1st. 🙂 If Dylan keeps it up, she’ll be celebrating her acceptances before you know it. 🙂

  19. I’m so happy for Dylan and her proud parents and oh Happy Birthday kiddo!
