Happy 7th Birthday Cedric!

At 11:06pm March 6th, 2002, Cedric came quietly and smoothly into the world.  He peered at me with curiosity that has steadily grown over the years.  Cedric is determined to be the best at everything.  He loves school and will practice his school work on the weekends by making up assignments to do.  One of his favorite things to do is practice his multiplication tables.   I'll print out 12 sheets of multiplication problems to solve and he'll finish them in 30 minutes and beg for more.  Cedric also loves to perfect his athletic skills.  He loves practicing baseball and soccer skills.  You notice a particular word being repeated here, practice.  I like to joke that Cedric doesn't play, he practices.  Luckily, he has a happy go lucky brother to show him how to play.  
 Here is a pic of Dada and Cedric when he was a few days old.  
6 weeks.   18 months. 3 years. 6 years with his Eagle Eye Reader Award.   Happy Birthday Cedric.  Glad you liked your H2Oassis birthday party!   Cedric opening one of his favorite gifts, a box of pencils and a journal.   The kids moved too fast for me to get a good shot, but here Esther and Cedric are holding hands.  So sweet.   Wave Pool! Cedric and Blake on the Pirate Ship.  Aaaarrrrrgh ye Mateys! Here was a present too big for the party.  What could it be???
" clubs!  Thanks Grandma Pat and Grandpa Keith!  I really can't wait for the snow to melt now!   If I practice enough, I could be like Tiger Woods! "
