Next to Ammon is Treyton. Treyton is also in the 6th grade and turned 12 this past December. It is awesome to watch the 3 boys pass the sacrament at the same time. Seriously I love the little pride I get in my heart when I see them. I love it! Treyton has been doing ballroom dance this year and he is seriously amazing at it. He is always in motion and looks like a complete natural. One of the things that I love about Treyton is that he is always singing. Its almost subconscious he has a great singing voice and great stage presence - I keep telling him to get into drama. I enjoy having Treyton around the house - he is almost always willing to help with whatever needs to be done.
Cassidy is 14 and loves to tell me she will be 16 next year. I think she is growing up way too fast. She has such cute style and knows how to fix herself up - something I'm not to sure I have ever learned. She is a fantastic artist - seriously I'm not saying that simply as proud mom - she is really good. She is currently taking 3D art and is making a paper mache baby dragon. Her drawing of it was really cool and it is fun to see it starting to come together. Cassidy is in 8th grade and will be starting high school in the fall - that seems insane to me. It has been fun to seee her stealing clothes from my closet (except when I don't get it back!). Cassidy has a strong testimony and really enjoys being in Young Women's - she is a good example to me. I think your oldest child always holds a little place in a mothers heart. She made me a mother - and fulfilled a wish that I had for my whole life. Cassie is a good girl and I love being her mom.
Hayden - I love this boy. Hayden is 13 and is in 7th grade. He has severe dyslexia and I can't even imagine how hard school is for him and yet he almost never complains and loves school. He is so positive and has the softest heart in the world. I loved having him live with us last year and miss having him around. He has a different since of humor that I truly enjoy. Hayden is also taking ballroom dance and he so fun to watch because he (like me, you would almost think he was mine) lacks the cordination of his brother and its just fun. On Sunday the three boys all sat at the bar and just gabbed with me while I made cookies - it was so fun. I loved just visiting with them - it made my heart happy. I love them all so much.
