Buy me some peanuts and jackerjacks

Well, our second child has officially been ushered into the world of organized sports. And it's BASEBALL of ALL things! Is 3 too young for this? Yes. But I am a sucker for those big brown eyes. He's playing in a VERY laid back baseball league called Sandlot. Before each game they sing "Take me out to the ballgame". Micah's favorite verse - buy me some peanuts and jackerjacks :). He is typically finished with the game after the first inning (i think there are only 2 innings) , but when he plays he does pretty well. He's a lefty, so we're expecting to be recruited next year. Here are some of my favorite pics. Ok, they're the only pictures I've taken. I spend most of the time chasing Sophia :).

Micah's quote of the day

On our way home from church today Micah said "Mommy, when I'm bigger I'm gonna ride a motorcycle with training wheels".

My Jesus

You may have to scroll down and turn off the Disney World video music to hear this :). This girl is a poet and has lots of cool videos on You Tube and other places. Talking about Easter with my kids this week has left me feeling extremely overwhelmed by what my God and my Savior sacrificed for me! Easter bunnies and eggs are fun and we do all of those things, but I'm really trying this year to make sure my kids understand what this holiday is truly about. An almighty God submitting himself to death, for me. And then by His awesome power overcoming the grave! Praise God for an empty tomb and my living Savior! Happy early Easter :)
