Still Learning.

Well I am still trying to figure this thing out. I am doing the trial by fire method. So bear with me. It snowed this morning so Case and Creede were thrilled. Casey wore his new coat. I am still trying to convince Cache and Christian to get dressed but hey it is only 11:00. The day is young right? They are running around in a pull up and a diaper throwing stuffed animals as high as They can up in the air. They are funny little boys. I expect a wrestling match any minute.

Baseball boys

Baseball season was nuts! Casey played on the minors league for the Brewers. Creede played on the Rookie league for the Bee's. Aaron volunteered to coach Creede's team but was hired by jetBlue and had to do night training. So to make a long story short I ended up coaching the Bee's. Thankfully there were a lot of helpful dad's. Especially mine. Casey did awesome but unfortunately kids pitch in the minors. When he was up to bat he got hit in the hand by the ball. This really messed with his mind. He was pretty afraid after having to go get an x-ray and being splinted for a week. I am proud to say he finished the season and faced his fears. Both boys are great atheletes.

A little about a lot of us.

We are the Nelson's. Aaron and I have been married for almost 11 years. We have 4 amazing boys. Casey is 9, Creedence is 7, Cache is 4 and Mr. Christian is 2. The 2 older boys go to Providence Hall. It is a new charter school here in Herriman. They are doing awesome and we all love the new school! Cache and Christian stay home with me and fight most of the time. I am trying to resist the urge to start drinking. Sometimes I wish I get my hands on "mommy's little helper" Valium. One day at the grocery store they were fighting and a sweet old lady told me someday they will be best friends. I smiled and thanked her. Little does she know I am just trying to make it through the afternoon. Someday seems as abstract as having too much money
being too thin or having spare time. My kids are great though. And the one thing we do a lot of is laugh. I call Cache "Giggle Gus" once he gets to laughing there is no end. It is the best.
