Another School Year.

It is really hard for me to write this.... I had a first and a last all in one moment! This is the first day of school for all of my kids and also the LAST first day of school for Kaid! He is a senior! It breaks my heart to think that in a few short months he will be graduating high school! Wow, time flies. As you can tell Brett and Brock were really the only ones that were OK with having their picture taken. I had to do both of these pictures- because we have always done two photos with the kids- up close and a little farther off. As you can see Kaid did get his cast off his nose, he only has to wear it at night for the next 3 weeks.
Brett is now in 8th grade and he could not wait to get back to school and see some of his friends. He has played hard all summer, but Brett really loves school.
Brock is in 3rd grade and has Mrs. Snow. We had to go in and find his class this morning and he was pretty excited. They are getting pretty smart they have split him up from all of his friends :) so he will have to make new ones again this year.
Hopefully they all have a good year, have fun, make new friends, and learn.

Last night we had the baseball team party! It was a lot of fun. And I have been wanting to do a post of how the end of the season went but I did not have photos- so last night I asked on of the moms and she said that she had them on Facebook- so I stole them from her FB page :) Thanks JANA! This is Ben, J'son, Phil, and Brock (he was the stand in for Kaid)
The team ended up doing really well in the tournament and won the entire thing! It was such a great season and tournament. We had fun watching them play and come together as a team.
It was a late night, the game was an 8:00pm start and they last typically 2 hours, and then they handed out shirts for the team. Colby was really happy and enjoyed being able to coach them. Hopefully they will come back next year and be an even stronger team!

It was bittersweet Kaid has played with alot of these guys for years and there were a couple that are graduated now and won't be back next year, and do to a schedule change the tournament was played a week later than it was scheduled so Kaid did not get to play in the tournament (he was working graveyards for cherry's) Oh well maybe next year.

Kaid's Surgery

Here is the before surgery photo and the after surgery photo. Kaid had surgery on Monday to repair his nose. Once the doctor got in there was more damage than he expected so the surgery was longer and they had to do a lot more than they originally planned on doing. They said that he will be in a cast for awhile- we really won't know much more until he goes back to the doctor on Tuesday. So for now he keeps taking his pain meds and is getting very good at the PS2! Good thing it's summer and friends can come over and visit him.
This was while he was in the holding area waiting to head into the operating room. This was 10 days after the break- you can still see just how swollen his nose is.
