Austin is graduating from Preschool next week. I know he is only 3 but he is a genius!! Just kidding! ;) His little daycare does preschool 3 days a week and he does the activities with all the other kids. Next week they are graduating with a little ceremony and everything. Heidi (his teacher) told me he had a little part in the program. (Bet ya 20 bucks he won't do it but we will try) She was helping him with his little part 'Never say never' and he said 'Never say shut-up'. Oops!! She thought it was funny but I was embarrassed. So she changed his part to 'Never say shush-up'. That works! ;)
Austin surprised me with this beautiful pot of 'flowers' that he made at 'school'!! It was so sweet! I don't know if you can tell from the picture but he took just a little bite out of one of the 'flowers'. That's my Austin!!!
I know being 'prideful' is a sin but I can't help it! I have had so much fun watching my boys play baseball!! Of course all we do at our house is watch the Rockies and play catch so you would think I would be tired of baseball but I love it!!
Tyson is playing 1st base and he takes it pretty seriously. His coach calls him 'scoopa loopa' because he can catch those ground balls like no one else. I have proof that is all he does at home...you should see my garage door. Oh well. He seems so grown up when he plays. Just a different Tyson to me. He wants to be on a traveling team so bad! Of course as a parent I want what my kids want but a traveling team?? Ugh. We will see if they pick him this year.
And then Jordan. That kid can hit the ball!! He never strikes out. He is still doing the pitching machine so next year it might be different but I will enjoy his success while I can. Jordan has such short legs (and I swear one leg is shorter than the other)it is the funniest thing to see him run. I can pick him out of the crowd just by the way he walks and runs. The thing about Jordan is he is serious as a heart attack when he plays. To him nothing exists outside that ball field. It's pretty funny.
Austin. I wish he was a little older because when we go to watch a game, he is all over that park. He won't sit and just watch the game or even play with a toy. He has to be checking everything out and so half the time I am chasing him so I don't lose him. Ugh. He has his own little mit and he will ask to play catch with anyone but his aim isn't the best yet so he usually gets us in the face. Too funny!!!
(The pictures are awful because I took them with my phone.)
I seriously wanted to cry today!! I worked last night so I slept a little this morning and planned on laying down with Austin for awhile this afternoon. Well...he wouldn't lay down. UGH!!! I should have got up and started doing something so I would stay awake but I tried to 'rest my eyes' and keep track of the little stinker. I woke up 30 minutes later to a few extra decorations that I hadn't planned on. Austin had found a package of markers!! (Thanks goodness they were erasable!!) I have to admit he is quite artistic. His 'art' was bubbly and carefully placed just the way he wanted it. I had to laugh otherwise I would have cried. I pulled out my camera to take pictures and Austin walked up and started babbling while pointing at his art, telling me all about it. Oh my!! Thank goodness he is so sweet otherwise he would always be in big trouble!! ;)
Ugh. I haven't even typed the first sentence and I have tears in my eyes. My sweet Tyson turns 12 today. I remember the day he was born like it was yesterday. I didn't get to see him for a few hours after he was born but when I did, he was beautiful!! (In all reality he was bruised, skinny, gangely and old man looking but I am his mom I did see that!) He was so sweet!! I remember everyone coming to see him. I loved it!! I met Ryan for the first time! LOL!!! Good times! I remember coming back from my muscle biopsy and crying for my baby. The doctor preferred to have him in nursery as much as possible so I could rest. So the nurses would bring him to me at night to breastfeed and then take him back to the nursery. A few of the nights, the nurse would bring him to me and tell me they would be back in 30 min to get him and when they would return, he wouldn't have fed because I just held him and loved him. Oops! ;) So many memories! It makes me sad to think that in 7 short years he will be going on a mission. I can barely have him spend the night away from home. (I know it sounds dumb and unrealistic but I have anxiety when my kids aren't home. Well...after a few hours that is! LOL!!) Tyson has made me who I am. He is a blessing and ray of sunshine. His sense of humor reminds me to not take life so seriously. His sense of right and wrong reminds me to be Christ like. His determination reminds me that I can do anything. Don't get me wrong he is human and not perfect but in my eyes he is a gift from my Heavenly Father. I will cherish these next few years...they will go by fast. I love you buddy!!!
I haven't posted anything for awhile but I wanted to be sure I added this. My boys are the best 3 little men God could have given me. They are so good to me (let's all remember Austin is still 2...ugh) and I enjoy being their mom. Love you lots and lots boys!!
P.S. Seriously....what would I do without this cheesy face?!
