At the end of September, Jackson turned eleven. Fall is always so busy with back to school and sports that his birthday always sneaks up on me. Same was true this year as we were right in the middle of practices four days a week with both kids. But, I... Continue reading

In late July, Jackson played in a 3-on-3 tournament here in town. It was a hot weekend but super fun to see him play basketball again. And his little team played a lot of older teams and held their own. I'm excited for their AAU season this winter! Continue reading

The second season of River Cats baseball wrapped up in late June. It kept us so busy that we've just spent time lately enjoying the down time. We started getting things going in January with organizing/ordering new uniforms and reaching out to sponsors. Practice started in February with open gyms... Continue reading

At the beginning of July, I took Audri to her first little volleyball camp in Chelan. It was an afternoon camp put on by two Gonzaga volleyball players. They were so great, especially with Audri after she got hit right on the spot she cracked her skull. She took a... Continue reading

Mid June, I turned another year older. It was a great low key day that was capped with a homemade cake BJ and Audri made me. It was the sweetest thing and a first for both of them. Here's to another year around the sun! Continue reading

The kids capped the school year on my birthday this year! It was a great excuse to take the day off to do something for myself in the morning and then be able to pick them up around noon. As always, I was sad to see another school year go... Continue reading

This year, I was able to make the kids' field trips and field day. It felt like I wasn't in the office much the last couple weeks of school but I wouldn't have it any other way. So thankful to spend the time with them. And I always love seeing... Continue reading

Well we tried round two of tball this spring. With Audri cracking her skull on the first day of last year’s tball practice, we had to quit before we even started. We decided it would be best if I volunteered to coached again this year so then we could keep... Continue reading

Well I've successfully managed to get really behind in blogging/sharing photos. Our lives have been consumed with t-ball and baseball for the last couple of months and any free time is spent just trying to keep up with laundry and chores. But I am going to make a commitment this... Continue reading

Mid April, our Audri girl turned seven. SEVEN. I had a friend text me saying seven seems so much bigger than six and I couldn't agree more. Five to six seemed not so bad but six to seven, it was a big jump. Any resemblance of being a little girl... Continue reading

Audri's birthday fell on a Friday this year and boy was she looking forward to it! So I made sure to have special breakfast and balloons ready for the morning. We sang to her and she got to open a gift prior to going to school. And this year for... Continue reading

At the end of March, our sweet Nicky turned six! And this year, Audri was so excited about her birthday, we baked her a cake. Thank goodness for Amazon prime. :) We baked her a boned shaped cake and celebrated by singing her happy birthday. She didn't really know what... Continue reading

Last year, we started to notice vision changes in Jackson. So we took him in to the eye doctor and the message we received was that his vision wasn't 20/20 but it wasn't bad enough to warrant any correction. So we moved on and kind of forgot about it. This... Continue reading

Our pop warner football league had an auction/awards night this year. We went to check it out and also because we knew someone special was going to get an award. Jackson got the team spirit award for our team and while I was a little squirmy when BJ nominated him... Continue reading

I think we've finally turned the corner and are headed for spring time weather! It is such a relief after such a long winter. We spent so many hours in the gym watching basketball but we did have a couple of weekends where we were able to squeeze in some... Continue reading

Well we have pretty much wrapped up basketball with the exception of some open gyms. This winter has been a long one so I guess I'm thankful we had basketball to keep us occupied. Audri finished up little hoops and had a good time. Being on an older team was... Continue reading

It's February 1st and honestly I can't even tell you where January went. I think it is mostly because I spent the month in a gym. Every weekend in January we had basketball for one or both kids. Jackson played in three tournaments and one all day jamboree. Audri started... Continue reading

Back in mid-June of this year, there was a big debate going on in our house. Baseball or football in the fall. We gave Jackson the opportunity to choose independently even though I think we both had a preference in our heads. After a lot of discussion and back and... Continue reading

How do you know you had a super busy November? When you are posting Halloween pictures in December. :/ But better late than never. Especially because all of us dressed up this year! I was hoping to do a couples costume, but BJ totally ditched to pair up with Jackson.... Continue reading

Audri completed her second season of soccer this fall and we were blessed to get Coach Mike as her coach again. Actually, she had the same exact team as she had last fall! It was super fun to see all the same girls compete again and improve their skills. It... Continue reading
