Are we crazy??????

Now, I am sure most of you would answer yes to that question - lol. Besides the normal crazy stuff of life though, we have decided to let Andrew play fall baseball and flag football this year. Oh and did I mention Kira will be playing soccer as well?! Well, you see, there is an explanation! We had signed them both up to play flag football and soccer this year and when Andrew was at the skills testing for football, the coach of the fall baseball team had asked him to play this year as well b/c he knew Andrew from the spring baseball program. We thought about it and decided to let him play both sports this year, mainly because his coach is an awesome baseball coach and really takes time with the players to teach them real baseball. Andrew absolutely loves baseball and we really believe he has talent to be able to play sports so well - We praise God for the abilities He has given Andrew. He has learned "signs" that the coach gives to the players during a game, he has learned a better way to swing his bat, and his fielding has improved tremendously since he first played in the spring (thanks Daddy for working with him on that when he was there!). It is a pleasure to watch him play! Dave did make a deal with him that if we were to allow him to play 2 sports, then Andrew had to commit time each day to reading his Bible. Everyday without complaint, Andrew has gotten up to read his Bible - it is our prayer that God will use this time to grow Andrew stronger in the knowledge of Jesus!!
Kira has yet to start any practices for soccer but we are really looking forward to see how she will do - we told her if we signed her up, she had to give it her best, that's the only thing we ever request from our kids, that they play their best, not just for us but for God!

Colossians 3:23-24
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.
