daddy's boy

Yes, Myles reminds me daily that he is "daddy's boy." He is definitely Kyle's shadow. Gotta love that outfit to plant some trees over the weekend...

In other news....I finally made it to one of Kyle's track meets. He's had a pretty successful season (took 2nd place at conference last week). Our neighbor is one of the seniors on his team and is an amazing long jumper/athlete. I had to take a few pics of her jumping tonight. This jump was 17 ft. 6 in (her best is just a 1/2 inch short of 18 feet). I seriously can't image jumping that far. She literally flies....

Best of luck and districts and state, Caylee & the rest of the gals!

Curren is 12 ?!?!?!

How is it possible that my first-born is already 12??? He's down to 11 days of school left of 6th grade. He's about the same age as when I moved to Denver. The next 6 years will continue to FLY by and he'll be off to college. Scary!

I'm so proud of this kid. He's an excellent student, an awesome runner, a devoted basketball player (he's in the gym every day shooting hoops), a VERY helpful big brother, and one good-lookin' kid.

The day before his birthday we had a mother/son date and went shopping, out to eat (does the pretzel maker count?????), got ice cream, and of course took some pics. It was fun to spend some one-on-one time with him.

I also figured out that this is the LAST year that I won't be a mother to a teenager for at least the next 20 years. SCARY!!! Good times ahead!

This one is my favorite....he looks so sweet and his eyes are just shining:
