Opening Day

Saturday, March 23rd, 2013

Today Harrison had his very first Tball game.
This is a new adventure completely for him–something that neither his older brother or older sister did.
He had so much fun during his first game. He said that he liked fielding more than hitting because you “get to go after the ball”.

I’m looking forward to the new relationships, fun, and learning that this opening day represents.
More photos to come. . .

Carter turns 8

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

I love this guy.

I took these on Carter’s 8th birthday, 11/17/12.
There’s so much that I could say about how amazing he is and how beautiful and challenging our relationship is, but a single blog post just can’t hold it all.

This series of three makes me happy:

Carter wants to be Johnny Manziel.
Carter thinks omlettes should be called egglets.
He knows how old he will be when, Lord willing, we pay off our house.
He understands the general concepts of borrowing and lending money.
He asked me about estimated quarterly federal income tax when he was about 6.
Carter is passionate about art.
When he raises his eyebrows his whole head of hair moves forward and backward almost like a helmet.
Carter is a collector at heart.
He quizzes Greg regularly about WWII military history and modern political science.
Right now, he can’t wait to add more slides to his power point presentation about lemurs in Spanish.
Carter will take a lifetime to even begin to understand him.

Maybe we should check out the BMX bike course in town???

Happy Spring

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

Last spring, Harrison and his friends released some butterflies that had hatched in their class with the help of their teacher, Mrs. Miller.

And a couple of favorites from inside the classroom . .
Building tracks.

Circle time.

This month I’m late. My kids were in a wedding on the 10th. Below I’ve posted 10 images of 24 hours at the ranch.
