Family Portraits

The slideshow above is from our family portrait shoot several weeks back. These were a surprise for my parent's anniversary a little early. I have worked with Dana for over a year and she is one of the sweetest people I have ever met. She has the patience of a saint and was so tolerant despite the fact that the boys were all over the place. If you live in the Raleigh area, check out her website or click on the link to the right. She also coincidentally did engagement pictures for a friend from high school and they turned out beautiful as well. She definitely is talented!

Let the Games Begin!

I mean that literally! Austin has started back with sports full swing. He is involved in T-ball and flag football. Every Saturday we have games and then have t-ball games at other times during the week as well. Football practice is on Tuesday nights. Caleb and I are getting a lot of time to hang out together although he is more interested in running around or trying to get into the dugout to see Austin. He will yell "Run, Austin, Run!" Sounds more like "Un, Au-ten, Un." Austin does like T-ball better than football but I think that is because he does not like to play defense. We will see how things pan out.

Just to catch everyone up. Austin will be graduating from Pre-K next Friday. He is excited but we still don't know which school he will be attending next year. He has mastered riding his bike without training wheels. We took a walk to the Farmer's Market in town on Saturday morning and he rode the entire way there. He is reading well and really likes reading to Caleb. Other than sports, he is his same old self.

Caleb is 18 months now. He is talking at times and say things like cup, cheese, outside, please and thank you. He is also getting better at saying people's names. He is very active and does not even sit still to watch TV for very long. He is intereseted in anything that his brother is doing. He will hit a baseball, play hockey and golf, and ride his tricycle with his helmet on. He especially enjoys our neighbors and their little girl who he plays with almost daily.

We are having great fun playing outside every day. I am becoming more proficient in my sports skills. I have to keep up with the boys. Summer should be fun but I imagine we will be tired after running around after everybody. By the way, the pictures above are random through the past several months. Carter (my nephew) had his first birthday and there are some pictures included from that event as well. Until next time...
