Spring Training!

Another enjoyable Spring Training season is underway! There's something to be said for the smell of the grass, the crack of the bat, crowds of fans, sunflower seeds... well, you get the idea. Our dear boys really get into it. We're so blessed to have these memories and special times together.

So, take me out to the ballgame! And, GO MARINERS!

Moving On

When my brother passed away, I found a collection of old Sprague High School choral songs that my brother had converted from cassette tape to MP3 files. I know he listened to music a lot and it brought him joy. One of the songs on the tape was about grief. These lyrics ring true to me. Grief is real and can be overwhelming. But, it's time to move on. I love you, Andrew! Thank you for listening to my music!


Since your limbs were laid out 

The stars do not shine, 
The fish leap not out 

In the waves. 
On our meadows the dew 

Does not fall in the morn, 
For O'Daly is dead

Not a flower can be born, 
Not a word can be said, 

Not a tree have a leaf; 
Anthony, after you 
There is nothing to do, 

There is nothing but grief.

Insert Summer Fun!!

Summer is here! So much is going on and we're behind on the posts, but oh well :) Josh graduated Kindergarten [insert blog post here for later] and we've moved on to the joys of summer break!!

Outside of the neighborhood pool getting a face-lift, basketball camps, swim lessons, organizing rooms, catching up on laundry, [insert long list of chores here], etc. we did make it over to San Diego for a quick vacation.

San Diego is a great way to start off the summer! The boys went to some Mariners vs. Padre Games, we all went to LegoLand, and even got to swing over to L.A. for a quick visit to meet Baby Elijah! It was such a blast. [insert photos here to document the FUN!]
