Got two. Daughter 12 & son 9. Son plays soccer. Daughter plays fastpitch softball almost year round and pitches a fastball clocked at 52 MPH!

Seems like we spend more weekends at ball fields than at home sometimes, but we're lovin' every minute of it!

So, what are your young'uns onto?

It's an old story-
In a small town there was this farmer who would charge people 50 cents to watch his bull with the cows in the spring. One day, a station wagon pulls in and a man gets out and asks the farmer "how much?" The farmer tells him "50 cents each"
The man then asks if there is a discount for his 10 children. The farmer says "10 children?"
"maybe you can let my bull watch you"

Was that you, Gene? [Linked Image]

Son (30) Master Electrician, has his own shop, loves to golf, loves to play guitar

Daughter (26) Editor of a small town newspaper, loves to shop, like her mom!

Son (24) computer Video editor, stage & graphic helper for local public access show for Latinos, loves to play guitar.

The two boys also have a rock band, when time permits, and when they can get together with other members!

Love your kids while they are young, they have so much energy and are such inspirations to their parents. Hopefully they will pay you back, with interest!!!
