"a portrait of each of my children, once each week, in 2016"

Jaden: I can't get enough of him in his baseball uniform. Their games haven't even started, and I already have so many pictures of him in his crisp whites and reds! (Mostly because I know these whites won't stay white much longer. Whose idea was it to make an all-boys elementary baseball team wear all white uniforms?!). Team pictures were last week, and they all looked so handsome. And all of us parents are glad that they have numbers on their backs this year because with all of them dressed completely alike, we sometimes have trouble telling whose who from the bleachers!

Brandon: He had quite the Saturday. His first canoe ride, his first lost flip-flop at the bottom of a lake, his second caught fish and one massive sand mountain that he climbed over and over again. Oh - and one incredibly dirt-smudged face by the time we were all said and done. Because it literally took using all four limbs to make it up that sand hill, he pretended he was a giant monkey for hours on end - ape noises and everything.
