Happy Belated 4th Birthday Christian!!!
On Thursday it was Christian's 4th birthday. We had a very nice day. For dinner we had Chicken Parmesean and for dessert a yummy ice cream cake. We got Christian his very own football helmet. We also got him a scooter complete with helmet, elbow pads, and knee pads. He loves his scooter and rides it all over the place.
Christian is a very sweet boy who loves his mama! I can hardly believe that he is 4 already. Some of his accomplishments this past year include potty training, learning to swim, diving off the diving board, and leaving behind the toddler stage for the big boy stage. We are very proud of him ad we love him a lot!!! Happy Birthday buddy:)

Here are some pics from RJ's third AAU game. We missed the first two because they were a double header a couple of hours away and he went with his coach.
This was the first game of a double header against a very good team. They beat us soundly but the kids never gave up and tried their best. RJ looked good and is loving AAU baseball.

First off it was hard to find time with schooling the kids, keeping the house clean, baseball, etc. Then the first batch of documents I coded was almost entirely in German!!! That was a huge challenge and it took me almost 5 hours to finish a batch of 20 documents. Not a huge money maker. The next batches just got easier and now I just have to hone my typing skills - and my German:) (jk) - and I should be able to complete more batches per hour and make some extra money.

Yesterday was Mikey's first ever game with AAU. The 13 and Under Bombers played a double header against the Nort Port Cats. Each team won a game.
We met at teh Pine Island Super Target and caravaned to the North Port fields. Getting there at 9:30 am. Because their was no time limit we ended up not being done until 5:30 that evening. It was an exhausting and hot day but so much fun.
I am very proud of Mikey. It was a challenge playing on such a big field- the same size as a major league field. He was the extra hitter the first game and played left field. In the second game he played center feild until the last inning when he was moved to left field. He had a lot of hits and was walked twice by being hit with the ball. He loved it and likes his team mates alot. All the boys did great despite the heat. We lost the first game 10-8 and won the second game 16-15 despite being down 10-0 in the first inning!! Not one kid on their team struck out all day! That is quite an achievement! Though they have things to work on I think they did very well their first time all playing together and we are looking forward to a great season.
