Let the Games Begin....And the craziness!

Yesterday was Opening Ceremonies for Little League Baseball. Braeden is playing this year. Tyler will be playing Babe Ruth and is currently playing for his Junior High. Cason is getting ready to start baseball with the City of Porterville. So, now you understand the comment "Let the Games Begin....and the craziness!" Brae had so much fun in the Speed throwing contest. He threw 24mph and 31mph. He was so proud of himself. Then he tried the hitting contest. He did really well and had a lot of fun. He is on the Diamondbacks this year and has great coaches. Looks like it is going to be a fun year. Go Braeden! Go Tyler! Go Cason!Look at that level swing!
Swing Braeden, Swing!

Fun with Meme!

When Cason is with his Papa & Meme, his days are busy and full of fun. One of his favorite things to do is run around the backyard like he is in a track meet. How they got him to pose and hold still is beyond me. The pictures that Papa took are too cute to not share!

Happy 13th Birthday Tyler James!

Happy 13th Birthday Tyler! We are so proud of the young man that you are becoming. Just yesterday, I was holding this precious little baby boy who made me a mommy! It seems that I just blinked and 13 years have passed. I treasure you as my son. You make us so proud by your example and love of the gospel. Most days I wish I could just make time stop so that you would not grow up. I do look forward to seeing you grow into a man and all the many joys we have yet to share with you! I hope you have a day that is as special as you are to us! We love you our very 1st son!

A New Cook in the Family!

On Sunday evening, we had the missionaries over for dinner. We were having BBQed hamburgers and Braeden wanted to help Bret do the BBQing. He is so excited because he has almost earned his Wolf Ranking in Cub Scouts and this was one of the last requirements that he had to do. So....Here is the new cook in the Family, Braeden Michael! And...the Burgers turned out delicious. One of the missionaries had 3!

It's Official....Cason is Registered for Kindergarten!

OK...I really have a wonderful husband. After working from 3pm on Thursday until 3am on Friday, Bret went to Buckley Elementary with his lawn chair and a Sports Illustrated (along with every important paper we have to prove that Cason really is supposed to be going to Kindergarten in the fall). You see, there is this insane idea that parents at this school have that they need to line up starting at about 4am for Kindergarten Registration. So...Bret stayed up all night and went and got in line at 5am in order to make sure we got the teacher we wanted for Case. I think I have thanked him at least a dozen time with the response that I need to stop and remember that Cason is his son too! Anyway, we did get Mrs. Davis for Cason and we are thrilled. She is awesome and we are so excited for him. Excited for him, but not sure we are ready to let go! Why is it so hard each time one of the boys moves into the next step in life? Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Bret! You are the best!
