"a portrait of each of my children, once each week, in 2015"

Jaden: On Spring Break this week and very happy to have a few days to reconnect with his daycare friends in the Blessed Beginning's school age building. When I picked him up yesterday in our balmy 81 degree March weather he was sweating from head to toe after intense games of Capture the Flag and football. He also had collected a few new Pokémon cards from a buddy and was taking some of his own back today for an even trade. I'm excited to experience the NCAA basketball tournament with him this year and printed off the official bracket yesterday so we could follow along together. I'm just hoping the Panthers do some advancing so we can enjoy filling out those brackets even more!

Brandon: He's been bit by the basketball bug now too that the weather has been perfect for evening shoot-arounds with his big brother. He shot hoops for a solid two hours last night, only pausing for our grilled dinner on the deck, and was so excited to tell us that he doesn't have to shoot granny style anymore!
