Tyler definitely got the “Luck of the Irish” today. He got his favorite kind of green for St. Patrick’s day, a one hundred dollar bill. One year ago today he started the candy deal with his dad that he would go without any candy for a whole year. While it was a tough thing for a 6/7 year old to do, he did it!

I am so proud of you Tyler for your determination even in the face of temptation at holidays, birthday parties, and family gatherings. You didn’t falter once. You’re lucky to have your older sister Abby as inspiration (Ben and Abby Sittin in a Tree). I’m proud of you for deciding to continue it for another year. I’m sure it makes St. Patrick’s day a lot more fun and a lot more memorable. Good luck for another year. I love you!
