"drama class is actually a lot of fun." -gracie (this is only humorous in that grace seemed surprised by how much she likes drama class. this from my child who we refer to as "a drama queen" when she is not around.)

this nickname is about the farthest from the truth for this boy, but it was given by his para at school who is literally named mrs. cool. any nickname given by someone named cool should be revered and honored.
she's had this one for a while in honor of her sometimes goofy ways. she is the only one in the family who was genuinely surprised at her flair for drama.

a boy who loves dinosaurs, swords, trains and cars, but can still enjoy (and even request) the occasional barbie movie.
