"a portrait of each of my children, once each week, in 2016"
Jaden: He finished his spring swimming lessons last week and passed on to the next level - which just so happens to be the last level. One more year left of lessons for this boy before we close the door on that particular chapter of his childhood. He also got his first official black eye this weekend during a fun game of after-dark basketball, and - he starts baseball practice this week. We got his league schedule over the weekend, and we're all pretty eager to spend our entire summer at the baseball fields. I've never seen him go to bed as tired as he was last night. This boy plays hard, parties hard - and has a lot of good things to look forward to.
Brandon: He also passed his swimming lessons last week - his first year in the big pool. He's more then ready for the Falls to open up in a month so that he can get his little toes back in the water. Our little fishy just loves it. He was a big helper for Daddy over the weekend as they worked side by side on our new landscape - and here he is walking around the yard watering our blooms in his Batman cape. Just love him.
