Week 40

WOW! A whole lot of Easton this week. I usually try to even things out but I guess he was the center of attention as usual.

Making a Change!

Carson turned 11 last month! He is an amazing boy and has had some trials in his life. He always has in mind how his decisions will affect others.
Carson has loved playing baseball.
He has loved his teammates

Most of all he has loved having his Dad as coach.

Carson has wanted to play Hockey for a few years. We knew it would be alot to play Hockey and Competitive baseball. So he would have to make a hard choice between 2 good things. He did not only think of himself he thought of his team "Who would coach them?" He thought of his Dad "He loves coaching the Barons". We assured Carson it was ok to do what would truly make HIM happy.

After alot of thinking Carson has decided to give baseball a break and Hockey a try!


He does not complain about the 7:15 Saturday morning practices that we have to leave for at 6:30 a.m.

He willingly handed over all the money in his wallet to pay for his jersey.

(we didn't even suggest that he had to pay for hockey)

He Loves Hockey!

Carson is amazing and such a great example!

We love you Carson!

Here's to trying new things!

No Fear!

We had Jaxon's end of season team party last night. Easton had to be just like all the big boys. With little coaxing he climbed up on the board and jumped in.

after a couple of jumps he was shivering so bad it was a miracle he even stayed on the diving board. No Fear! but it did give him a little comfort to have someone there just in case.

Making the Record Books

It is always cool to watch a baseball game and see back to back homeruns.
Imagine back to back to back to back to back homeruns! It was like a fireworks show. 7 pitches 5 homeruns!






In 15 years at the Dreams Park this is the 3rd time One team has had 5 consecutive homeruns in a game. Now the Bandits are in the record books.

Family and Friends

Thanks everyone for your support in helping Jaxon acheive this dream.

It may have been supporting fundraisers or cheering him on!

It was great to hear from so many loved ones back home checking in to see how games were going or to know you were cheering him on through the computer screens! It was also fun to have loved ones cheering him on at the ball park. Jaxon was lucky to have his grandparents join us on our trip.

Grandma Jones
Grandma and Grandpa Knight

We were thrilled that so many on our New York relatives took the time to travel and support Jaxon. (Grandma Knight, Ken, Nancy, Tony, Kristen,Jeff, Sue,Easton, Natalie, Carson,Grandpa Knight, Dan, Lori, Jim. front- Mason and Jaxon) We love the time we get to spend with them which is never enough.

Dan and Lori were passing through the area and stopped to see one of Jaxon's games.

Sue and Jeff came and stayed Saturday- Monday with us. Mason even tried to convince them to move to Utah because we don't get to see them enough.

Tony, Kristen, Nancy and Ken camped in the area for a few days.

It was great to spend time with family.

Play Ball!

For the next 4 days we spent it at the ball park with 2 games a day.
What a good looking group of boys! They worked so hard to get to Cooperstown. This has been a team goal for about 3-4 years.

The great coaches that helped get the there.

If you know Jaxon, you know he does not just love baseball, it is his Passion! Cooperstown was like a dream come true for him.

The Bandits won 5 of their 8 games.

Jaxon hit a home run!

Ouch! Ben took a pick off ball to first base in the eye. He took the day off and was back playing the next day.

Jaxon hit another home run. I will post more on this one later.

We are so lucky that Jaxon gets to hang out with such a great group of boys!
