Damon turned 10! He is a beautiful boy, ready to develop into a handsome man, much too quickly.

I can't believe that he is already in the double digits. Damon is really starting to mature. The teachers have been telling me that he has made great improvements at school, and he even won most improved player on his hockey team this year. He is really enjoying our new location. His favourite place in the whole world is the frog pond behind us. We often have "guest frogs" who come and live in the aquarium that he has set up for them. He always wants to keep them, but he does understand that it wouldn't be fair to the frogs.

Damon is a fun big brother. He is really good at keeping the girls entertained, although he occasionally finds it entertaining to tease Kira and watch her throw a fit. But lots of us are guilty of that.

For his birthday, Damon wanted to try the new chinese buffet (not the one Kira went to). He wanted to have a football game in our backyard for his birthday, but when I explained that the 3 feet of snow in our backyard might not make that possible, he opted for the birthday buyout. (Where they get a more expensive gift instead of a party with their friends) He got a PSP.

Wow, what a heartmelter (I won't say heartbreaker, because I think he's be nicer than that)!! The birthday buyout idea is pretty cool...might try that sometime.

stunning photograph!! Boys and their frogs, I imagine you'll all be in heaven this spring and summer out there in the country. I hope you all have enough time to enjoy it. Does he like science stuff? Josh did at that age and what a great place to study nature!!

Jake had chinese buffet with a friend the other day and he came home saying, "Wow, the chicken was great. You're right, they taste just like chicken fingers, only better. I never knew that." (This was after he's watched us eat sweet and sour chicken for the last 8 years and refusing to try it every single time! LOL

We love Chinese food here, sounds like a great birthday dinner.
