The secret pal struck again this morning. The Pal left three books for the kids and a note encouraging them to read during the summer.

I have been traveling a lot lately while Saint Michelle provided family duties so I notice subtle differences in symptoms with the kids more. Tyler has been practicing baseball and very excited about the Cooperstown trip we are taking next week. Yes, Michelle, Tyler and Myself will be out of town but if you plan to rob my house at that time I would not advice it. "Guido" will be staying at the house with the kids and there is always our two trained dogs to contend with. Tyler has made some real strides in his ability to be involved and play baseball. Last week at practice his coach was hitting fly balls to him in left field and Tyler was catching them. Several people called and said how cool they thought that experience was and how other kids have grown from this experience. Kyle McGriff and other friends of Tyler’s were giving him high fives and encouragement. Cooperstown...

I have been spending some time with my Mother who is suffering from Alzheimers. Every day I want to spend more time with my kids and family. My friends and family are so much more important to me since we have started our battle against dystonia. They have been very important and inspiring to us.

Tyler went with a group of friends to the movies. He said he won a special girl some stuffed animals but she beat him in a race game.

Samantha won the Tyler Staab award for 3rd graders. She was completely suprised and very happy. She has shown excellent character and gets straight As. WE are very proud of her.

Luke found some Batman boxers and thinks he is the Big Dog around the house now. He had his last day of school on Friday and is ready for summer.

We are nearing the end of the school year for the kids. Luke, aka Spiderman gets out this Friday. All three kids seem to being doing very well again and scored very well on their recent FCATs.

Samantha keeps telling me about the annual Tyler Staab award that her school will be giving out this Friday because she is a finalist. Both Samantha and Tyler lose their aides for next year. Tyler's Aid is moving and Samantha's Aid is becoming a teacher. This is scary going into a new year without knowing the Aid. Tyler's Aid is out on vacation the next two weeks so he doesn't have anyone to assist him while preparing for his finals next week.

Tyler went tubing with a couple friends last weekend and had a blast but he worked really hard to stay on the tube because he can only grip with one hand. Any person would have been completely worn out from a day of tubing but he was having so much fun he kept wanting to do more. I find it hard to tell him to stop even though he probably should because he is eating up...
