While at the park we spotted Hercules also know as The Beast in the movie Sandlot. This is Will's favorite movie of all time and can pretty much repeat word from word. (HE knows that the few bad words are replaced the word "peanuts" :) We often have to remind when playing a real baseball game that he isn't in the Sandlot as he yells out "throw it to second Smalls!". That kids cracks us up. He is a keeper.

For the past couple of years I have used the "Power of a Praying Wife" calendar to help me cover Landon with prayer each day. When I first started praying for him I prayed just the general prayer of, please bless our marriage and the basics. As my prayer time became more intimate I got more specific as I know that God asks us to come to him boldly with our requests. I know that He wants only what is best for us and especially for our marriage. Why would God compare how we should love our spouses to how Christ loved the church if He didn't think this was a BIG deal! :) As I started to pray more specifically for Landon I began to see him in a different light. I have always loved and appreciated the sweet qualities that make him...Him but its different now. Some of things that I saw as weakness I am now seeing as great strengths. I think that God has done more work on my heart through praying for Landon than anything else. I know that the better I can learn to love my sweet Jesus the better I will be able to love Landon.
I want to be able to look back 10, 20, 30 years from now and know that I took pride in protecting my marriage and did all that I could to bring Glory to God by what my marriage reflected. How thankful I am for Landon and all his many God given qualities.
I thank my God every time I think of you.

Grae and Will have recently perfected their skills of irritating one another. So, this past weekend after many...."Mom, he blah blah blah" Landon and I decided that before we would do anything fun they had to figure out how to have fun with just the two of them. We let them pick who's room they would play in but that they had to play together without fighting for 45 minutes before either of them could move on to anything else. We gave a few suggestions but told them that if we heard any fighting or arguing the 45 minutes would start over. Can I just say that this time was amazing. Not only for them but for me as well! There is an indescribable feeling that came over me with peace in our house. As I was soaking in the moment I peeked into Grae's room to find him teaching his little brother how to play Candy Land. He was so patient with him (Even though Will kept pretending to eat all of the Candy Land men) This is now the Saturday morning rule....Team Building at The Webb Household! :)
Last week we took the boys the $1 hotdog night at the Ranger game. We had a blast! Winnie's family was there and we joined up in the kid play area where they boys go play a little baseball of their own! They were in heaven and are asking when we can go back. :) Will, however cried our entire walk back to the car. His cry was more of a desperate plea to play with The Rangers. Oh my is all I have to say.

Well, we have been waiting for Fall baseball for 3 months now and it is finally here! Grae moved up to the 8U division (coach pitch) and couldn't be more excited about it. The recent cool front that has blown in has only fueled the fire more and between school and practice we are living in our front yard that can always be spotted from a mile away. Covered in baseballs, helmets and of course BASES! This is no surprise to anyone that knows Will. We can hardly make a quick run to the store without him gearing up in full baseball gear just in case a field is on the way. Will is starting in the 4U mini T-ball league this year. He is 3 and is on a team with some of his best friends! (Nathan Walters, Drew Haynes and Cooper Cumba) We had our first practice a week ago and when practice was over and the coach told them they could all go play on the playground Will looked straight up at his daddy. He had this look of horror and said as he began to cry..."I don't want to be done with baseball!" So the obsession continues....I will be typing up the game schedules soon for the both of them and will get them emailed! They would welcome a cheering section! :)
