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

Jaden: I think he's just the cutest little baseball player there ever was. We have two more weeks of this season, four more games, and then we head straight into football practices. As busy as we are this time of year, I really do love it. Jaden has always had the largest cheering section at every game ever since he started playing t-ball a few years ago, benefits of having our entire family living so close to us, but last week we added even more people, as my aunt and uncle moved to town from Iowa City. We love watching him play, love seeing how much he's progressed since last summer, and love these times spent as an entire family watching the kids grow up while doing something they love. His best friend Jack is on his team, too, and it's been fun to share in these nights with Jack's family as well.

Brandon: Two weeks left at daycare for this one. I think the reality of that is starting to sink in for him, as he knows he's about to say goodbye to his very best friends. But we've been talking up school a lot and all of the fun that's ahead for him. He's comforted to know that he will have the same kindergarten teacher that Jaden had, is excited for art class and recess, and last night was thrilled to find out that he can choose chocolate milk at lunch time - every single day. ;) Lots of change ahead for all of us... but we've got this.
