Garret wrote this at school and brought it home. He could pick whatever he wanted to write about and this is what he wrote-
My Dad, Tyler Fordham is somebody I love. Here are several reasons why, my Dad sets good goals. He keeps goals that he sets. He makes goals that help himself and other people. My Dad shows patience everyday. He shows patience in everything he does. he shows patience even when days get hard. My Dad shows service in many ways. He has a job that provides money and food. Every Christmas he gives food and money to other people. My Dad shows cooperation when we work on family projects. He also shows it when he works with people at his office. I admire my Dad for all of the ways he helps us and other people.
I am so grateful that Tyler is someone the kids look up to and can try to be like.

The kids have been "Secret cupids" for each other and have loved being as sneaky as they can. They give little gifts and lots of homemade treasures.
Titus loves coming up to me and singing " since when did you become my mudder." A line from a Newsies song. He thinks it's so funny when I sing back that I've always been his mudder.
Adele said to me "I love pretending I have a friend named Sara or Charlotte." I asked what she liked doing with them. She said first she tells them that they are pretend then they play together and talk.
When I put music on Adele likes to dance. Titus will say " are we marry dancing or crazy dancing? "
Garret is loving the Rangers Apprentice books and if the weather is decent he is outside with his bow pretending he is a Ranger. He wants a cloak so bad. I love his imagination.
Gideon is on the move. anytime i turn around he is somewhere else.
Titus is my most destructive child ever. He is very innocent about it but he seems to always be breaking things and causing trouble. He is so hard to be upset with but sometimes that cutie can wear me out.
We have been working on the attic and the kids will spend hours up there. Singing and playing. I think Titus has been up there the most. If Tyler or my Dad go up he just goes with them and plays with scrap pieces of wood and loves it.
Garret and Spencer both got report cards and they both did great. I love the teachers comments about what great kids they are.
Everyone is doing great around here.

Mom held a cake on her lap the whole way. We knocked on the door and she was literally speechless! Success.
After that there was lots of Birthday wishes, baby holding and girl time.
A girls night jammie party.

War was a popular game. They seem to play it over and over and over, until they are burnt out and then it gets forgotten. It was new again and they were loving it.

We also fit in a trip to the temple and a movie, Paddington, which was actually pretty cute. It was nice getting away and visiting people we love.

Another time Titus and Adele were up in her room. He came down in 0-6 months clothes because he was a baby.
That same day he came down in a newborn nightgown. It looked like a tight mini skirt on him. Funny kid!
