This week in the life of the Deevers

This week is Silas' birthday and Cady's graduation. We did both events last night. Cady was dramatic to say the least at her graduation, entertaining as always. Silas added his 2 cents, when a boy couldn't remember his lines I think you can hear him on the video saying"Stage fright". It was a great program. We cried. She had 28 kids in her class, almost unbelievable huh, so few but we like it. Silas got a 4 wheeler for his birthday (along with a helmet) now we can't wait for rain! Tomorrow another ball tournament, Charis is sitting up now,too. (That's Dillon in the pic, her baseball buddie, if you are comparing sizewise he's a week younger )Busy times, next week we are out of school, I love summer.

To all the MUDRS

Cady has begun spelling phonectically and her cards say hape mudrs da. So sweet, silas' first phonetic note was a run away note. We had a wonderful day, worshiping the Lord and spending time with the kids at my fishing picnic. What was so cool about the pond, (besides all the cow patties) was how quiet it was, out in the middle of no where, literally, it was us and nature, no computer, no cellphones, no neighbors, no pagers, no fish however we did spot a snake!

Cute story...Cady sits with a friend of mine and her mom most sunday mornings. Today she gave her a "note", it said happy mother's day (someone must have helped her with the spelling) and had a picture of her and Jaime on it. Cady told her to keep it forever and take it with her when she dies, she even gave specific instructions for her to wear a jacket with a pocket so she could be buried with the note in the pocket. Where does she come up with these things?

Also silas did very well yesterday in a ball tournament, played his best, got his first hit!!!!! and scored , he got 2 out at the plate, they played 3 games this weekend the progress they've made is astounding. We love cheering them on. Go comets!

New brusies

So last week Cady busted a toe, then she skinned a knee at school then yesterday during practicing at home Silas wacked her with the baseball bat on the upper arm (on accident).

Tuesday Silas got hit in the head with a baseball, then today while trying to learn to skate he bloodied his nose when he fell and then tonight skinned his knee in a bike accident.

Into each life hurt will come, then more, then more, then more. And sometimes we want to give up but as I told Silas yesterday when he wanted to give up baseball, your team needs you. And so does yours...we are all needed...we all have a job, some small, some large (thanks to Bee Movie for the confirming illustration). Be we can't give in to discouragment, can't give up the dream. I love baseball- so many lessons. I was so proud of my Silas last night after such a hard time he gave 110% in his game, he even played hind catcher. No hits yet, it's hard. You know I'll be shouting when the first hit comes, and God cheers us on when we serve through the pain, and persevere for sake of God's team. Stay tuned for more lessons from the field....ld
