YMCA Basketball Banquet

Well a season of YMCA basketball came to an end.  I think Peyton improved his fundamentals and is loving the game even more than before.  He wanted to play another season this Spring, but with a heavy practice/game baseball schedule we decided it would be too overwhelming. 

We met the team/coach at Godfather's Pizza in Troutdale for a pizza party.  Peyton had fun playing/chatting with his teammates (many that were also schoolmates) and Olivia of course had a blast playing with her bff Ben, a younger brother of Peyt's classmate Allison, that she loves.  They play together every day at pick-up and just have a blast together. 

We are proud of our boy!

Here's a video of him scoring during his last game:

And a video of Peyton receiving his certificate from his coach:

Semper Fi

The weekend before last, we welcomed my nephew Bradley home from US Marine Corp 12-week boot camp in San Diego.  He is a different man! He did so well down there and I know he has a very bright future ahead of him.  He is very disciplined with a Prazeau work ethic! And good job to the USMC for finding a uniform and shoes to fit his 6' 7" frame.  He was home for a little over a week and is back down in San Diego for another month of training before he goes to Missouri.  We are so proud of him!!!

Peyton is 7.  He is growing up before our eyes.  Peyt is still our stubborn and sometimes moody boy who is always on the go.  This kid does not stop until he hits the pillow at night.  Always thinking, asking questions, building things, and testing his boundaries.  

School: He is thriving! It has amazed me how much he has improved with his reading. He is reading chapter books and comic books and is doing really well with it.  His favorite subject in school seems to be math.  His teacher says he's doing great and does even better when he slows down and takes his time.  He has a hard time not rushing through his work.  He's eager to move on to the next thing and we are trying to get him to slow down. This has always been a struggle for him.  

Activities: Peyton loves to build.  He will take cardboard, paper, glue, rocks and anything else he can get his hands on and create things.  He's loving basketball right now and is about to start farm baseball this spring.  He's also mentioned that he wants to play football, but we'll see.  Peyton and Olivia play a lot together now that she's older, but man they can fight.  They will one minute be playing happily and the next fighting over something.  He loves to be outside and we are excited for spring to come.  He loves hanging out with family.  He is obsessed with camping and going to the beach...he cries when we come home from either.  

Peyton has been eating us out of the house.  He is definitely growing and has a big appetite.  He continues to be a great eater and sleeper.

I've lost track of how many teeth he's lost and his 6-year molars are just about all the way in.  The last time we went to the dentist they told us he may have to visit the orthodontist early because his mouth just isnt big enough for all his teeth and braces are most likely going to happen.  I had the same issue and had braces early on.  His teeth look good though and no cavities.

We went to the doctor the week after his birthday and everything looks great.  He's a healthy, tall boy!

Height: 51" (97%)

Opening his gift from us....we got him an iPod shuffle with a speaker to hook it up to so he can listen in his room.  He is obsessed with music and loaded it with all his faves!
We love you PEYTON PRAZEAU!!

Not too thrilled by the small package....

Realizing what it is!

Peyton started basketball again with the YMCA.  He has quite a few of his classmates on his team which is so fun!  I finally brought my camera to one of Peyton's games.

Birthday Celebration with the Prazeau's

We ended up moving the date and the location of the kids' birthday party with my side of the family to my Dad's house due to the snow storm.  Not everyone made it, but the kids still had a great time!
