10 year old love

I thought a little post about Kenny was in order today. He has had a busy week!
Here are some of the highlights:
Last Saturday night we drove up to Stockton for a hockey game to see 5 of our former Falcons players and 2 of our coaches play for the first time since our team folded mid-season. This has been hard on Ken and the boys as hockey games were their special dad n' me time and they had really bonded in the last 2 years over their love of hockey. All the boys had a rough time seeing our guys in the "wrong jerseys" as Kenny put it, but by the end of the night and a new Stockton jersey given out by the promotions team to Kenny, we had a happier outlook. We could barely believe the guy put the jersey on Kenny when he thanked all the Fresno fans for coming out to support the Thunder team. He was able to get the jersey (and his Falcons jersey too) signed by the coaches and players after the game at a special Falcons Fans Meet n' Greet. It went a LONG way to healing his little heart. Here he is right after getting the jersey, I think he still didn't believe the guy gave it to him, LOL.

After the big hockey weekend, we finished up his History Day project for 4th grade. I am so proud of how hard he worked on this project to learn more about his topic and really make the project his own. His project was about James Naismith, the inventor of the game of Basketball. Kenny thought hard about his topic and chose someone that plays an important role in his life today. He said, "I like it that he made up a game a long time ago and I play it today at school." A big thanks to Grandma Brotton for all her help over the Christmas break too! He was not chosen as a winner for his school, but I loved his presentation board anyway.Finally, this week was report card week and school awards. Ken went over to the school to see Kenny earn his Principle's Honor Roll award for straight A's and excellent behavior.


He also lost yet another molar on the playground so the tooth fairy made a gold ribbon tied visit to our house this week too. We are so proud of our little boy! He is working hard in school, Tae Kwon Do, BreakOut and many other activities. Keep up the good work son!

Love, Mom
