Tristan’s First Steps

I recently found some of our old Hi8 camcorder tapes – what a trip down memory lane! To make sure we have them in the future, I went ahead and put all the videos on the computer. This one is of Tristan’s first day walking. You’ll have to forgive the annoying daddy commentary, but needless to say, I was pretty excited.

Very hard to believe that the boy in that video is now 9 years old and in 4th grade. Just a reminder to cherish each day with your kids – one day they’ll be off on their own and won’t even bother calling home (that was for you, mom!). Enjoy!

Proud Parent

Yep, that’s right – I couldn’t be prouder! Tristan came home today playing “Mary had a Little Lamb” on his recorder. Pretty cool, but we all learned that in school, right? What made me really proud was HOW he played it. Nothing better than listening to your son play the recorder through his nose!

Tristan's First T-Ball Season

I’m finally getting more and more of the photos and videos off the cameras!  Here are some pictures from Tristan’s baseball season this past spring.  He really had a great time out there.  I do have to say that it is so much fun to be out there when the parents and coaches let the kids have fun.  The Rangers had a couple of great coaches this year.
