This is Lincoln, the oldest, who will be 11 in a few days (we are birthday twins — just a few years difference!). He loves Legos and has been making intricate creations since long before he could read the instructions himself. His favorite is the one at the top of the bookcase — Hogwarts Castle from Harry Potter. He plays on football and basketball teams.
The middle two boys are twins, age 10.
Jack is in the chess club at his elementary school and plays in chess tournaments in the city and state. My daughter and I were shopping for some school clothes and spotted this chess-themed t-shirt, which says, “Always Three Steps Ahead”. That’s Jack. (He loved the shirt!)
Aiden plays chess with the school club and has some trophies too but his “thing” at the moment is soccer. He’s playing on his first traveling team this fall after playing on rec teams since he was four.
When I lived in Minnesota I was their day care person from the time the twins and Mason were born. They are dear, sweet boys and I sure miss seeing them every day!
