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

Jaden: His first Friday night high school football game under the lights with Daddy and Papa Tim, another lost tooth in the middle of the night at Papa Bob and Nana Nancy's house and another touchdown run in a shutout victory for his Chargers this weekend. And then probably my favorite of all - a Sunday night pasta meal on our deck last night where he drew up plays on his hand for his daddy to run at practice tonight. We've got one week left of his football season for this year, and we're all going to seriously miss it. These are the days...

Brandon: He fell asleep on the way home from our Sunday afternoon adventures and didn't even wake up when Daddy transferred him from the car to his bed. It's been years since that's happened. Especially since this boy stopped taking regular naps when he was two! It was a precious moment watching Cody carry him inside, and I was so thankful that in these days of constant growth and change, my sleeping five year old still fits on his daddy's shoulder.
