Tate has left the goal!!!

Tate is wanting to play out of goal some these days he was delighted today to play the field.  

This is my favorite!

Summer Kick off in the City!

Eyoub leaves Tuesday and we thought it would be great fun to drag him downtown to walk along the river and get some Ethiopian food before he leaves.  He was a trooper considering he got home at 5:00 a.m. from prom.  So sad Harper is gone for the weekend or we could have had all the kids together one last weekend.

Lately I have run out of ideas about how to punish my children.  My latest was to read a few articles about hitting others and your sibling and to write about it.  I was very impressed he threw in a few links with his 500 word minimum.

I have not edited the paper....

you should not hit other people for many many many reasons. Just one is hitting people can ruin reltonships forever also it can ruin your social skills and it cam ruin the social skills of the one singular human that you have hit. on ( it states that "When you use physical punishment to show a sibling she did something wrong, you are sending the intended message that whomever is bigger and stronger decides what's right and what's wrong" that shows that when you phisically hurt one other human it shows them they will never have the chance be correct and they will never know what it is like to have a sibling not hit them. it was bad, wrong, and flat out mean to hurt my beloved sister and I deeply apologize. Also another thing i read was sibling rivalries if they dont change then they wont get any better they will just keep getting worse and worse and worse And will carry on to our adulthood so i can conclude don't ever hit any one because if you do ever hit some one over and over again it wont be good. And i don't honestly want to be that guy that has a fight with my sister every single day that is no good. Also people notice things Say for instance they might notice good things or they also might even notice bad things like say we were at an airport for some strange reason i dont even know why but say we did ok me and e.b had a fight people arent just going o be like oh those kids had a fight whats the big deal no they are going to be like ok then those kids are fighting that is not one bit normal. But on the contrast if people see you being nice to each other in public they will think aww how nice I do not know about you but Personally I would choose the second one because chances are you and those random people you saw wont ever meet again or were you met   but what they will remember is how you acted so we should act good. A no time is hitting people exeptable especialy your sibling no matter what they do to you so if you want to keep you relationship with your sibling which would be a good thing than dont hit but still dont his it is abusive bad and keeps you and your sibling from keeping their relationship. also another ting i read is that when you hit another person they will have a higher chance of getting anxiety or depreson witch are not good so that could really stress out and phiscaly hurt eb or any body so i think that i can finnaly pretty much conclude what i have wrote here on this page and just say what i have done is bad so no more hitting people or doing any thing bad
