Who said they can grow up?

As we wrap up another school year, I can't help but be a bit sad that our boys are growing up and growing up FAST! Kyle is finishing 2nd grade on Tuesday and Jacob will "graduate" preschool on Wednesday. While I am far from ready to accept the fact that they will continue to get older, (I want to keep them younger for a bit longer to make up for the "younger" years we missed!) I am enjoying the each new phase in their lives. They both has such great personalities and senses of humor.

Kyle is playing his third season of baseball. We have been blessed with having the same coach all three seasons. Coach Aaron is very patient with the kids. He doesn't raise his voice at them and works hard to make sure the boys are playing to the best of their ability. Due to the insane amount of rain we have had in the last month and a half, the team only had about 4 practices. Even so, they have played two great games and work together well as a team. I think it is going to be a great season!

Kyle loves riding his bike. He spends most moments outside riding up and down our driveway and around the yard. Jacob has enjoyed PUSHING his bike around after his brother. While Jacob can ride a bike, he just seemed to struggle with getting the movements coordinated enough to be really successful with it. Billy and I decided part of the problem was possibly that Jacob had outgrown the bike. Friday evening we bought his a bigger bike and he has not gotten off it most of the weekend. He loves his new "shiny, red bike" and can ride it so much better!
