1,2,3 ...SLIDE!!!!!!!!!

Coaches: Jeff and Dan
Here is a picture of Braxton learning how to slide into home. Unfortunately, this was after one of our last games of the season. He was too afraid to slide during the season because he didn't want to "do it the wrong way"
It was a fun baseball season. Jeff and our next door neighbor Dan were the coaches. It was their first time coaching and they had a BLAST!!! I think braxton had a fun time too, but he said that Jeff always yelled at him. At one of the games, braxton was up to bat, and he had 3 balls and 1 strike on him. He dropped the bat and ran to first. Jeff asked him what he was doing, and he said "The ball almost hit me, so I ran to first." Needless to say he had to go back to bat and then walked. It was a fun season.

Drazen's Awards Ceremony

On May 14th, Drazen received an award at school for winning the 7th grade Spelling Bee in January. He actually won the Spelling Bee at school, and moved on to the regional, he was one of the winners of that, and then moved on to the district spelling bee, which was televised on PBS channel on Superbowl Sunday. There, he was one of 7 remaining contestants, but unfortunately he missed a word, it was indefatigeable. Of course, I never heard of that word, and believe it or not neither did Jeff. Drazen missed it by one letter. It was a bummer, but at the same time really cool that he got as far as he did. What an experience for him.

Teddy Bear Picnic

Katie's Preschool class

Katie and Emily
So, last week Katie-bird had a Teddy Bear Picnic at her preschool. We all met up at Mts. Edge Park. There were 3 other preschools involved. The kids had different stations to go to with their bears. They read books, had a treasure hunt, had a counting and sorting station and a parachute station. The picnic was SO much fun, except it was probably on of the windiest days in Las Vegas.

Okay here it is, our family's blog. I am so new at this. I have no clue what I am doing - REALLY!!! But I thought it would be fun.Anyway, our family has been pretty busy the last few months. Drazen and Braxton are both playing baseball. Jeff is coaching Braxton's team which has been a lot of fun. They aren't always winning games, but they are all having fun. Drazen's team is doing pretty good. He hit his first homerun a couple of weeks ago. He was pretty EXCITED to say the least!!! I told Jeff at the beginning of the season we might as well move into the baseball park for the season. We are always there between the boys' practices and games. Carlee loves going to the games because she gets to work at the snack store.Katie-bird is in dance and she really likes it. She is surely keeping us on our toes. But she is sure fun.I am just busy with the kids. PTA has kept me pretty busy also. The school year is near the end and I am THRILLED!!!!!Katie and I went to baby Chloe's blessing yesterday. Aaron did a great job. And it was fun seeing all the Motts. We don't get to see any of them that often since we live so far away. Jackson is getting so big, and he is sooooooo cute!!!Jeff is getting ready for his fishing trip this weekend with Scott. The weather is getting warmer and the fish are calling!!!! Jen and I are probably going to have a slumber party with all the kids, so we are not scared at home by ourselves. ( I know we are pathetic)
