"a portrait of each of my children, once each week, in 2017"
Jaden: You attended UNI football camp last week and earned the team MVP award the last day of camp! That is quite the honor because it was chosen by your team coach, who happens to be a UNI football player, himself. :) The award is sponsored by Gatorade, so you received a Gatorade medal to add to your ever-growing collection, as well as a special Gatorade water bottle, a Gatorade athletic bag and a Gatorade sports towel! Your sports camps are now done for the summer, but we're still going strong with baseball, and football practice will be starting before we know it!
Brandon: I just love this tooth-less grin. :) You had a blast at the Sturgis Falls carnival this past weekend and were finally tall enough to drive a bumper car by yourself. ;) You are really enjoying your golf mornings and convinced Papa Bob to buy you a UNI golf hat at the pro shop last week - even though it was adult-sized. You pointed out to him that the velcro backing is adjustable, and he couldn't resist your pleas. ;) Papa said when he picked you up from golf today, you looked just like a little Arnold Palmer with your clubs hanging from your back and your too-big golf hat on your head. :)
