"a portrait of each of my children, once each week, in 2017"

Jaden: UNI basketball camp last week and UNI football camp this week! Your summer got off to a fast and busy start, and aside from baseball for the next several weeks still, I'm getting anxious for your schedule to start slowing down a bit. You did great at camp last week, and even made it to the finals in the all-camp layup contest - getting a big shout-out and cheer from your old bud Seth Tuttle on the last day of camp. You were pretty happy to know he still remembered you! Now if I could just figure out a way to keep you out of our new walk-in pantry... ;)

Brandon: You were SUCH a big help for Daddy this weekend. You both worked so hard on re-landscaping our entire front yard, and it was adorable to watch you carry those big heavy edging stones and scoop heavy rock around with a heavy shovel. You did it all without expecting anything in return, but Daddy promised you some money for your efforts. Proud of you!
