Much to Celebrate
Steps. What else is there to say? Ash is getting stronger and stronger every single day. She works so very hard as she struggles to learn to walk. She is terrified to let go of our hands, but very content to step, step, step as long she is holding on. She even asks us to help her stand up and walk. I am in awe of her. NOTHING comes easy to her. She must work much harder than any of us to gain even the smallest amount of progress, but she isn't giving up. I am SO proud of this girl and SO grateful for each moment we are given with her in our lives. I think she is the most beautiful thing I've ever seen.
Goals. We aren't celebrating a win for the Texas Pride this weekend(unfortunately we lost 2-1), but we are celebrating an AMAZING goal, honestly it was INCREDIBLE, scored from mid-field by our Allison. It was SO COOL! I so wish I had gotten a picture of it, but I was too busy watching it that I wasn't snapping pics at the time. Allison has scored from mid-field in every game of the season this year(thats 3 weeks in a row) and it is so exciting to watch her do what she does. I just love her!
Championships. A weekend at the ball park. Need I say more? Ok, I will. Blake's new team the Stix came away with a tournament win. It was such a fun time. The guys hit well. I mean really, really well all weekend long and when you combine that with good fielding, great pitchers, and an AMAZING catcher(I couldn't resist, he is my kid and all) you get results. The most important thing to me was seeing how much fun our kids had. They really, really enjoyed the weekend and they smiled all the way through to the final play of the game last night. That's why we all do this week after week. Creating memories with our kids.
Anniversaries. 17 years of marriage with this amazing man. He was and is still is my very closest friend. I can't imagine life without him. He makes my life more fun than I could have ever imagined. His character and integrity are hard to match. The love he shows toward his family, his friends, and his patients make me fall in love with him all over again. He is an incredible father. There are no words to even describe how great it is to have him as a dad. Dave, you are the best. You truly are the best person I know and I'm so grateful to have you in my life. Love you.
SPRING BREAK. I've got no pictures to share with you yet, but stay tuned because by the end of the week I will have some great ones.
Life is blessed. Take care. Trish
