These two boys. Gotta remember how tiny and cute they were for a moment. Look at them, so freaking sweet!
Those sweet, innocent little boys! I could stare at those tiny little faces all day.
Now, Peter and William have never had the smoothest of relationships. They can bother each other, get mad with each other, yeah - family stuff. But look at them, they love each other, deep down.
Fast forward lots of years and I take you back to last week. William and Peter are currently sharing a room. One night, William woke up from a scary dream. Before I could go in there to check things out, Peter had heard William crying up on the top bunk. William asked Peter if he could lay by him. Peter did it, he got up there and took care of his little brother. I have some amazing kids.
Back tracking several years again. Haley, this beautiful little girl. Born into a world of boys and soccer and blue. She has grown up watching soccer. In this picture she was like 3, and this was her birthday and she began it by snuggling up under a blanket on a very cold Saturday, while her brothers were playing soccer.
Again, always coming to the soccer games and practices. Not always watching 100%, but always there to hear me cheer, and watch those boys run around. Haley has sat at the computer while Caleb watches goal keeper videos and learned how truly amazing Manuel Neuer is. She knows that when one of the boys scores, that means an ice cream cone - for everyone. That one time when Caleb scored 3 goals, on his 2nd Haley asked, "does this mean we get two ice creams?" She has heard us all cheer each other on, learning the ropes of soccer practice and soccer Saturday and even watching Real Salt Lake on TV and live. We cannot let Haley know Real is playing on TV unless we are willing to stay up late and watch the whole game. Haley finds out, and we are watching.
Fast forward to this evening. Look that that cutie! Real played a game tonight. Turned it on. Haley was into the game. Watching it, about 75% of the time. There were moments of lag there. Anyway, towards the end we all kept commenting on how good Glad was doing at defense. He really was, saved Rimando quite a few times. At the end of the game, when we were all so excited with the win Haley piped up and gave us the quote of the night. She said, "Glad deserves an ice cream cone." OH my, I love this little family of mine!
