"My guiding principles in life are to be honest, genuine, thoughtful and caring."

If you are a regular reader you may have read our post a few weeks back about the name of the blog and where it originated, if so then you'll know all about the pirates. They have been a part of our life for years. This week on the way home picking Seth up from school, Seth sat in the back talking about how much he loved the pirates. Being the thoughtful and caring person that he is he said "i want us to do something nice for the pirates to say thank you!" he continued to tell us that they are always doing nice things for him and he would really like to show his appreciation.

It's little out of the blue comments like this that make us realise what a great job we are doing at raising the boys. He has morals and his priorities are exactly as they should be. He understands that you cant go through life taking, you should always give something back and when it comes to acting responsibly and doing the right thing he clearly knows the difference between right and wrong (unlike a certain blog author, but i turned out alright in the end).

Ive now got my thinking cap on, the pirates have and will continue to be a great source of motivation for the boys and as Seth so rightly said they deserve a huge thank you. Whatever we decide to do to show our appreciation it needs to be a celebration worthy of our eye patch wearing pirates of the sky.

Watch this space...
