She's a baseball player

Last night was Jordan’s first t-ball game as a player. She’s attended many games… Ever since she was tiny, she’s attended games for her brother. But now it’s her turn. I had a lot of people ask me how she was going to play. She has a tiny pink bat and she’s swinging it super…

Finding ways to meet

Family meetup!

We had a great meetup yesterday at the Magic House just outside of St. Louis. We had a small but super fun group of families to play and get to know each other. The Magic House was crowded but we were able to have all kinds of fun. I can’t say enough about how powerful…
