This week marks our first week without some form of baseball since February 18th! What a run it has been. This last fall, BJ started making his dreams of creating an AAU team from scratch a reality. Many nights of phone calls trying to line up players as well as... Continue reading

Mid-June, we officially wrapped up kindergarten and third grade. What a crazy year this has been. I have to say this was probably my least favorite year for Jackson. It was filled with what seemed weekly issues on the playground with him being pushed, kids throwing things at him and... Continue reading

A couple of days before school got out, our Audri Jayne graduated from kindergarten. I loved going to Jackson's kinder graduation so I was looking forward to her night. Once again, it was the sweetest thing. They walked in the gym, sang songs, had their names called out one by... Continue reading

Field day. One of my favorite days of the school year! The day when I get to hear my kindergartener say this is the best day ever. The end of the year sure is busy but I love using leave time to watch my kids do these activities. Continue reading

Last week, I was able to take the day off and join Jackson for his third grade field trip. They do a "Youth on the Columbia" day where they spend time at Confluence Park and then the museum learning. And when they are at the park, they go canoeing. I... Continue reading

I was lucky enough to be able to take the day off of work and volunteer for the kindergarten field trip this year. They get to go to Smallwoods for the day and it was great to see Audri get to enjoy something fun after having so many restrictions lately.... Continue reading

This year, Audri's birthday fell two days after her bad fall so we had to do our best to keep it mellow but yet still make her feel like she was so special. I think we were still just trying to recover and comprehend what had happened two days prior... Continue reading

Mid-April, little miss turned six. Six. The first year that it feels like we are moving completely away from any traces of being little and on our way to big girl status. This last month has been one full of challenges with our Audri Jayne but I feel like we... Continue reading

Audri Jayne. Our second born. The child that is determined to take years off my life. Last Tuesday, we had her second ambulance ride and fourth major visit to the ER. This time we walked out with a cracked skull and gratitude in our hearts because it could have been... Continue reading

Easter came super early this year and kind of crept up on us. But the Easter bunny came through and it was so nice to have a low key day as a family. We hung out at home in the morning and then went to a BBQ at BJ's Aunt's... Continue reading

My girl. Life finally slowed down enough this weekend to capture her look right now. I don't ever want to forget her goofy toothless grin. And she has two more loose. Continue reading

This year was our first year of AAU basketball. The great thing about starting in 3rd grade is the experience. The not so great thing about starting in 3rd grade is the majority of the tournaments in our area are 4th grade tournaments. And 4th graders are a lot bigger... Continue reading

This winter, Audri was able to participate in Little Hoops League. And at the last minute, I was able to coach her team. Boy was that a roller coaster! It takes a LOT of patience to coach 4 and 5 years in basketball. I felt like I spent most of... Continue reading

Life has been a bit of a blur lately. With two kids in sports, coaching, work and starting an AAU baseball team from scratch, there hasn't been a lot of downtime. Heck, our Christmas lights are still on our house. And the beauty of it is that we no longer... Continue reading

When we were in high school, BJ had some pretty great baseball teams. His senior year, he was injured and battled through the season with a bad elbow on his throwing arm. His team was up and down and really, I don't think anyone gave them a shot at going... Continue reading

As with past years, we made an effort to make it out to see the best Christmas lights in the valley and take the kids to a special dinner. And the best part about this year is we managed to avoid going to McDonalds and instead went to the Olive... Continue reading

Well I guess it's time to post some Halloween pictures since another holiday has since passed. This year we had a hunter and a self proclaimed tooth fairy princess. The kids were able to wear their costumes to school so at least we got a whole days use out of... Continue reading
