TEAGUE GOT A HIT!!! (not this picture... note closed eyes).
He got a hit!!! Prayers are answered!

This is how it came to be...

Trent and Grant (assistant coach) noticed Teague was swinging 10 inches above or below the ball. They both said, "He can't see it!" Teague is blind in his left eye.

So Trent told Teague, "You are now going to be a left-handed batter."
and he started hitting the ball!

I don't know who is more excited Trent or Teague (or me).

This was a great idea... A trip to Coeur d'Alene Beach for the day! Ryder ate sand, Ryleigh floated, Gabi dug, and Teague looked for living things.

Isn't he pastey white?
I actually had to buy sunscreen! haha I HAD sunscreen, but I have to admit I don't use it on the chocolate kids.

The chocolate kids.

This is the life!

Let go of me so I can go play!

Baseball season has arrived! This is our FIRST year of baseball and softball with Teague and Ryleigh. This is Teague and Ryleigh's first GAME. Trent called Teague to pitch in the 3rd inning. He did a good job for 2 innings. He stuck out three batters. Ryleigh did great. I saw her field a ball at shortstop and throw it to third. She also got some hits! Teague is praying to make contact with the ball in his next game. They both really love it and Trent works with them and is really enjoying that!

The tiniest one on the team. Cute little thing!

My mom was here last week. We had such a great time! The kids LOVE her to death!!

Gabi sings the song "You can't always get what you want" from the Glee sound track. Here is the modified version:

You can't always get what you want... (unless Bella is around)...

I love you mom! Thanks for your great example of love, giving, positiveness, service and fun!

Father's Day 2010 was the best ever. This year the WHOLE family (all the kids) are in the yearly photo with dada!

Teague and Ryleigh both wrote him awesome letter about what a great dad he is. That was the best gift, and Ryder chillin with him on the couch watching the US Open.
