Posing for Mommy before the party
Saturday, October 29, 2011
Derrik has been doing such an amazing job officiating for football this season. He got involved with a really great group down in Collier County who has opened up a lot of opportunities to him. Typically you have to put in your time to move up in the system. Usually you need at least three years experience to even be asked to do some varsity games. Derrik has been doing the varsity games every Friday in his second year, has been asked to white hat (be the lead official on the field) freshman and JV games the last two weeks, and due to tons of rain last night was asked to white hat a varsity football game this morning!! I am so proud of him for finding something he loves and am so thankful these people have given him the opportunity to advance as fast as he has. Maybe his dream can come true, and he can start working his way up the college ranks soon.
Football season ends soon which means basketball season is coming. He's already assigned to 56 games during the months of November and December! I guess we won't be seeing much of him!!

These pictures are a perfect reason why your little brother's face is plastered all over this blog right now, and yours doesn't make an appearance quite as often :)
You are finally liking this school thing! I knew if I just kept up with it you would adjust just fine. I know it's great for you. You come home learning new things every single day, and you love Miss Kristen, Miss Evelyn, and a cute girl in your class you've named Little Ally. I'm so glad you love school now even if you did break my heart the first two months.
Your teachers tell me you are the most outgoing during praise and worship at school. I just love that :) I just hope your don't break out your moves to the Your Sexy as You Know It song because they are so not Christian school appropriate!
You told me the other day that you learn about Jesus at school. I said that's great Ryder who is he. You responded back, "He's the guy in the blue shirt on the t.v." Clearly we have a long way to go in this department!
You learned about fire safety last week in school. This weekend Mack yelled at the t.v. that one of the Dolphins coaches needed to be fired. You said back, "No Mack they just need to stop, drop, and roll." You crack me up big guy!
T-Ball is still a work in progress, but we are making great strides. You still think Daddy is part of the team (we knew he'd get picked up again!), but I truly believe you'll be out there on your own by the end of the season. You are warming up to Coach Victor and have a cute friendship going with a little boy named Cameron. I'm not sure if I've blogged about it yet, but his family is from the Cincinnati area, and they always have Reds gear on as well. We later found out his mom graduated from GW where Derrik went to college... small world!
In the end I think you just don't like new people. Once you warm up to people you are very outgoing. Mommy and Daddy need to remember that and just have patience with you.
You are doing so great with swimming! I think you can do it 100% on your own, but I'd prefer not to find out if you can't so we leave the floaty on while your playing alone with supervision. When we are in the pool with you though you can swim the whole length of the pool, jump in and get out on your own, and can swim to the bottom to get things off the bottom of the pool without any floaty.
You change every day. We love you so much big boy!

10/26/11 - I started typing yesterday and had the saddest crankiest baby. He went to sleep in my arms which he typically refuses to do. I don't know whether to write it off as teething or many just a belly ache, but he was SAD! Hopefully I get to hit the post button today :)
Onto the regularly scheduled post!
Landon Brennan... six months! Wow!!! Please please please don't stop being my baby in the next six months. PLEASE don't grow up! I loveeee having a baby in my life. Daddy and I only want two little boys in our life so we need you to stay tiny f-o-r-e-v-e-r!!
With that being said let's talk about all the growing up you did this last month. You are getting to be so much fun. I feel like you are really becoming a member of the family. You really are startign to interact with us, and show such a great personality. You are still my easy child, and I so hope you stay that way! It's not a competition with your brother :)
