Happy 8th Birthday, Ashley!! (And Happy Forever Family Day, too!)

Hi All,

Just a quick post to mark Ashley's 8th Birthday!  It's been a tremendous year for our Ashley.  She's blasting through her year in 2nd Grade, and many of her Kindergarten and First Grade friends are in her class again this year.

Since her last surgery, things have stabilized really well and she's in a good place.  She is very active and enjoys jumping and flipping on our Trampoline, riding her bike and scooter and generally trying to keep up with her FOUR brothers. (I feel sorry for the first date she brings home!)

We are winding up our Christmas holiday vacation, with one more free day before school starts again.  Grandma and Poppa visited from Michigan, so we were HOME for the first time in many years.  It was nice, but the kids and I both missed the trip to Michigan - and the usual snow that we see there.  They had a very nice visit and had a chance to meet Tyler for the first time.  He bonded almost immediately, as he has usually been doing with his aunts, uncles and cousins.

Ashley continues to do well in school and enjoys all of her subjects.  She's a great reader and is solidly above grade level.

We also just passed Ashley's anniversary of her Forever Family Day - October 11.  She has been a Lockhead for SIX wonderful years.

We are all looking forward to an exciting 2017.

Happy Birthday, Ashley - We Love YOU very much!
Love, Dad & Mom
