Last Sunday my son Austin played his fist T-Ball game!!!! It is all just for fun so there is no score keeping. Both teams did a great job and all kids had a blast and were very funny to watch. There were some that knew their bases and ran where they were suppose to and then there were others that hit the ball and then ran to third base and others that started in one direction and then turned and ran in the other direction lol. Austin looked sooo cute out there on the field!!! Each kid had one parent on the field with them so of course Doug went out with him Austin was so intense he wanted to play so bad he was ready to get the ball so when it came over to him he ran over and got that ball!! When he got it he turned around to his Dad and said "what do I do with it now?" LOL Here are a few pictures of him at his game.

One of the Bravest Little Men

Austin came to me the other day and said "mommy my toof horts" (tooth hurts lol). I looked in his mouth and discovered he had a cavity in one of his molars. He was in a lot of pain so we eased it for the night with Tylenol and Ibuprofen and Orajel. I got him an appointment this morning for a visit to the dentist. Grandma Haslag (aka..Punkin) was kind enough to take Austin this morning due to me and Doug not being able to and the fact that I have a HUGE fear of dentists. He went in to have the Dentist look at his tooth and fill the cavity. hour and a half later Mom called me to tell me how things went. She informed me that Austin deserve an award for the Bravest Little Man Around!!! (or something like that lol). She then told me all they did to my little man. The Dentist told my Mom that Austin needed 1 filling and 1 tooth pulled and a spacer put in to keep the teeth from messing up as they grew. He informed my Mom that normally he would put a kid Austins age in the hospital and put him under to do the procedure. He asked my mom if she wanted to wait and do that or just go for it since Austin was being so big. Of course being the smart Grandma she is she said "heck go for it he is being a big brave boy."They gave him laughing gas (which btw made him a little loopy acting later in the day lol.....he has been CRAZY!!) he looked like an elephant. Grandma said he layed in that chair like a big boy with his legs crossed and let them work on him and then got done and went to the store for soft food and a special Spider man toy as a reward from Grandma. Thank you Mom for being such a great Grandma Austin is really excited because the dentist told him that since he was soooo brave the tooth fairy would be extra generous lol.

This is a post after reading my moms post.
This is my wonderful Loving family. My sister Tessa, brother Greg, mom Deanna, dad Jim and me. We have always had a very loving family and very strong family. We went to church every Sunday (well most every sunday lol) I liked going to church even if at the time I didn't realize it. I grew up knowing God and loved knowing I had him in my life no matter what. If you read my moms post you will know that I had my first son at age 16 well I had just turned 16 1 month earlier. It was hard but there was no way I was going to give that wonderful gift from God away when I had enough love and a wonderful family to support me so i could raise him right. Travis was with me in church for the first time after spending the first week of his life in the hospital. Father noticed I had him and decided he needed to call me that afternoon and talk to me about that little boy I had with me in church that morning. I tried really hard to be nice and when he told me I had a lot of growing up to do I politely said "yes I know Father my parents are here for me to help me grow as a teen and as a mom." I guess he didn't understand what I said because he repeated this about three times. I then got frustrated and" said I really appreciate his concern but I need to get off the phone." He then said well I just wanted to say one more thing. I said ok whats that? He then said the one thing that has stuck with me since that day and I have yet to be able to forgive him for. He said" I just wanted to tell you that the world would be a terrible place if every girl your age did what you did." I got very upset and hung up the phone and started crying and luckily I had my big sister there with me to help me through it until my parents got home. We informed them of what happened and they were very upset also. What happened later that day I do not remember and I wish I do. aparently someone from our church came to our door and gave me a rose and said.......

“We want to thank you for choosing life”
A beating heart deserves a chance to grow and be loved. Many beating hearts are killed before they have that chance.

Father doesn't realize how bad he hurt me with what he said. He hurt me enough that day that I do not remember this act of kindness that might have saved my faith in the church. I read my moms post yesterday and started crying. I have not given my boys the gift of getting to know God because of my fear of rejection in the church and I have not been consistently in church for 10 years. I have a lot of thinking to do and I think I have to work on forgiving the one man I thought I could never forgive. I hope I can find the strength I need to forgive him. I hope all of you have a wonderful week I know I am going to and I am going to try to conquer this fear I have so I can give my boys the gift of God like mine did for me. Thank You Mom and Dad. I Love you all very much.
