Play Ball!

May 13, 2015

After a two year hiatus focused on soccer (four seasons) and basketball (two seasons) Troy is back to playing baseball.

Compared to watching kindergarteners play which was like watching paint dry, mostly second graders are much more coordinated.

Things are starting to click with where the play is to get an out, how to get a double play and to watch your base coaches for direction when rounding the bases.

96 Months Old

November 18, 2014

I am now the mother of an eight-year old boy.

It's hard to believe that my tiny little baby is almost as tall as my shoulders. He can read. He can write. He has his own unique sense of humor that he can tell a story and add in suspense and humor.

Here is Troy when he turned two, when he turned threewhen he turned five and turned six. Last year, when he turned seven. And this one about the day he was born.

But now he's eight and he woke up and declared he must be taller and that his bedtime should be extended by 15 minutes. He also wrote in his journal exactly what he wanted to do for his family birthday party including the guest list and the menu (hamburgers, hot dogs, tortilla chips and carrot sticks) and what was on his wish list. But one thing he wants to do this week besides roast marshmallows is "burn his car seat" because he really wants to sit on either side of the backseat.

Happy birthday, Troy. We love the fire you bring to our house.


Let's Play Catch Up

October 14, 2014

Let's see, not a lot has happened in the last few months but a lot of fun stuff has as well.

We spent a week in the Outer Banks with our best friends in July. The same family from our joint trip to Costa Rica two years earlier.

Troy started second grade.

He is playing soccer again.

Troy got his hair cut and styled.

We take a picture to practice on picture day. These are the practice shots over the years.

We took a trip to Blacksburg to see Virginia Tech play football.

Troy lost two more teeth in the same week as being the student of the month.

Then a week ago cracked his adult front tooth in half in P.E. class. He was walking at the time he fell.

We are already making plans for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Plus, our first vacation to St. John in 2015 is booked. Time is going by so fast.


Jamaica, Mon

July 30, 2014

In June, we spent a week in Jamaica with 20 family members.
It was the same resort we went last year although with a lot less people.

 If there was an event at the resort you can enter, we entered it. This included everything from talent shows, dance competition, volleyball, family Olympics to some I don't know what they were called exactly. I embraced my inner Bob Marley while on the island.
