And .... for girls there is gymnastics and ballet

Carlee and Katie are still enjoying doing what they love the most. Carlee is still in gymnastics, and Katie is still in ballet. Carlee actually tried out for Pre team, and instead ended up making Level 4 Prep. She will be in Level 4 in January and will start competing. She is SUPER excited about it. She is still at Brown's and loves every minute of it. She goes 3 days a week for 2 hours each day.
Katie is still going to ballet. She recently had RAD testing to move up. RAD is a Royal Academy of Dance test. Their headquarters are in London. All the scores after the test have to go through their offices here in the US and then get recorded with headquarters. This is serious business. She loves it though. She goes two days a week. She has a few friends she goes with so I am sure that makes it that much more fun.
All in all our girls are doing great. They are doing great in school, and in their activities.
This makes for Happy times at the Anderson house. And very busy times!!! Jeff and I are always on the go!!

Baseball, baseball and more baseball........

IS there anything else to be said?!.....Drazen and Braxton have been very busy with baseball. Which in turn, makes us very busy with baseball. Drazen is now on the JV team at Sierra Vista, and still playing club ball with the Monarchs. Braxton is still playing club and is currently playing for Peccole LL as well. Jeff is the assistant coach for the LL team. They have games at least 3 days a week. Drazen has at least 2-3 games a week. And on top of that, there are times that right after a high school game, we drive right to our club team game. Poor Drazen, he must be exhausted. He leaves for seminary at 5:30 am and then has school, stays for baseball, and sometimes has a club game right after school baseball. There are times we don't get home until after 11pm. He has done great though. He is still getting straight A's, and finishing up all of his homework. I am very impressed. I don't think I could have done that.
So, right now, our lives are baseball!!! I may sound like I am complaining, but really I am not! Our boys are involved in sports which they LOVE, and we are supporting them in doing something they love. I know where they are at all times, and they are not stuck in the house playing video games all day either. So, this is good!!!!
So, if you would like to visit us, we are at one of many baseball fields in town!!! :)

For Easter this year, we went to my parents' house for a brunch after church (our church currently starts at 8am...). I think the kids had a great time. Kristen came with her kids, and George and Cami were also there. We had an Easter egg hunt for the kids, and then they all just played. It was a pretty mellow day. The day before Easter, Cami and I took the girls to Aliante, where they had an Easter Egg Drop!! The eggs were dropped from the helicopter and the place was a zoo. The girls each got about 6 eggs. The areas were blocked off for each age group and parents were supposed to stand on the outside and wait for their kids to come to them. (The idea was good but it doesn't quite work out so well) Anyway, Katie walked out crying because a couple of parents took eggs out of her basket. Are you kidding me, what it wrong with people?!
