Wesley decided this fall to try something other than soccer and has fallen in love with baseball. He is on a very talented baseball team that is kid pitch and age 9-10 (he is 8.5). He has held his own but most of
the players have played since t-ball. He really enjoys it and that is all that matters. Right now his team is 9-0 with one more game in the regular season (tomorrow). Wesley is slightly intimidated hitting the ball but has told me "mom the chances of me just walking to first base are better than me hitting the ball" haha! Too smart for his own good. Here are some pictures from the season! He is sure is cute in his uniform (bias mom comment)
Cailyn has Community Helper day tomorrow and Cailyn has elected to be a teacher. She is inspired by her Nana and Grammy to be a teacher!!! Special thanks to Lawson for getting her outfit all ready!! Have I ever mentioned how much Lawson loves to dress-up (torture) Cailyn?!?! She loves doing her hair & make-up like a her own little puppet!!! Ha!
Wesley decided months ago that he was ready to give his life to Christ and he wanted to be baptized at our former church in Raleigh, Driven. We drive down in a Saturday (took 7 hrs) stayed in a hotel and had the most incredible experience on Sunday surrounded by some family and friends. We knew Wesley was getting baptized what we didn't know was I (Maridith) was getting baptized. I had given my life to Christ several years ago but did not take the final step until August 7th. Wesley and I were baptized by our dear friend, Pastor Doug. Wesley received a beautiful Cross necklace from his Grammy and pops and loves wearing it. Before we left we decided to stop by our favorite stomping ground, the Farmer's Market.
One of the biggest perks of living in NoVA is having family close by. We see each other maybe once a month sometimes more but when we get together we have the best time!!!! Apparently when you live close by you also dress alike too! Lauren and I showed up in similar outfits and Cailyn and I planned our matching outfits. We love family time.
Thursday morning we woke up to a nice rain shower. These kids were excited to use umbrellas on their walk to the school bus!!! When I see Cailyn's excitement and energy oozing out of her I sometimes catch myself singing a song Mama 2 use to sing all of the time "I've got the joy joy joy joy down in my heart"
The kids have had a great first week of school but we are tired and looking forward to the 3 day weekend.
Today is Cailyn's first time on the soccer field and you can't wipe the smile off her face!!! She has never run this much in her life and she is still smiling! A friend from her class is on her team. It is going to be a great season!!! Go Cailyn!
August 29, 2016 has been a huge milestone! Lawson's first day of middle school, Wesley's first day of 3rd grade and Cailyn's first day of Kindergarten. Lawson was nervous ( locker issues), Wesley is ecstatic summer is over (?!?!), Cailyn bubbling with excitement to start big girl school. Mommy- struggling.
This morning went beautifully. Earlier start but wonderful. The part I was nervous about was my little sweet Cailyn getting on the school bus but her brother promised me he would take care of her and I totally trust him! With Cailyn so exited it was hard to say no to the bus!! Prayers for a great school year and new beginnings for everyone!
