Connor started T-ball this year and is playing for the MudCats each Monday night at Paseo Verde Park. He has developed a love for going to watch baseball- over the last three years, we have gone to a number of 51's games, and have visited the Ballpark in Arlington and Dodger Stadium. Now he's learning to play, and he's doing pretty good. He has potential- he's one of the biggest kids on the team, and when he's not chatting up the coaches, or thinking about unrelated things to the game he's playing in (tonight he was obsessing about a cheese omelette his mom would make for him after the game), he does okay.

One of our dear friends is Heather Messick of Saraland, Alabama. Annette and I met Heather when we moved to Mobile, and sang as a trio with her on a number of occasions. She is an amazing vocalist! We love Heather and her husband Mark. Since we moved from Mobile, Heather and Mark have had three children. Their third is a very special baby girl with formidible challenges. Victoria has Downs Syndrome. Heather and Mark have been blessed by this baby entering their lives, and she wrote a song about it. She asked me to put these photos in video form, and I was very honored and happy to do it, so here it is- Heather Messick singing "She is God's Child."
