April & May

In the Rutland house, April means BASEBALL!  Jordan had been practicing throwing a ball with Ryan since his first day home and couldn't wait to play for real.  Brent coached his team and we had a great time watching him grow as a BB player :-)

Ryan played on a new team this year, the Franklin Generals, and we were so blessed to be on a team with wonderful families and boys.  They were excited to have won several tournaments including the first one they played in for the season!

This year has been full of so many firsts for R & J and Easter was no exception.  They got to participate in a few egg hunts which they thought was the greatest thing...free candy?!?!

For Easter this year I wanted to start a new tradition of having a traditional Passover Sader (we have actually done this 2 times before just not by ourselves at home).  Brent, as the head of the household, read the script.

                                                                                      Our Passover plate:   

We visited the Resurrection Trail at Christ Community Church in Franklin...


At the station below the kids had to wash their parents feet like Jesus did the disciples' feet at the Last Supper.

May had us saying goodbye to some great teachers as we prepared to move to the new school opening.
Rachel with the beloved Mrs. Gonzales; her ESL teacher.

The older three with Coach Campbell...we sure do miss her!

Hayley & Rachel with Mrs. Hullett.  My first 2 third graders had this awesome teacher.  We were sad she stayed behind at Trinity and Ryan didn't get to have her too.

Fifth grade celebrations...

Rachel with her class at field day.  She had an awesome class!

Another school year over. Summer fun awaits...

    Your girls are beautiful princesse's and your boys are handsome prince's. Your kids are all special miracle's from god, gift's from above, earthly angel's.

    That is great that Jordan and Ryan loved playing baseball. I play baseball for special olympics, and we made it provincals next year, second place. Looks like Rachel and Jordan had fun during their first Easter, and candy hunt. That is great the Whitney particapated in the bike parade, I love the pink bike. Rachel looks like a real pro soccer player. I love soccer.

    I was born with a rare life threatening disease, and have 14 other medical conditions, and developmental delays.

    I wrote this poem

    Each of us are Special

    Each of us different,

    No one is the same

    Each of are us are unique in our own way,

    Those of us who have challenges, we smile through our day.

    It doesen't matter what other's say

    we are special anyway.

    What is forty feet and sings? the school chior
