Spring Break in Arizona


















Baptism Day


And as if it's not hard enough to get four kids to stand still for a family snapshot -- you have to worry about uncles in the background. . .

1st soccer games

It was a gorgeous day for soccer. Good thing. Five of the six of us have games today.






Cael was thrilled to finally be playing. Last year during his sister's games, he was a broken record of, "I want to play. I do. I want to play, too. I do." See the look on his face when he first got in. Actually, his whole body is smiling.


Before his game, Cael got some words of advice from an old pro.


Ah. An aspiring goalie in the long Tillman tradition.

Having an important discussion about strategy during a break.


This is Cael's waiting-for-the-throw-in stance.



Does he look incredibly small to anyone else?



Cael's officially the only one of the kids, who, on his first soccer team, is not there solely for the after-game treats.


Heartfelt cheering for Bailey


And finally: The whole family gets ice cream if anyone scores a goal. The Tillmans were scoreless all morning, so it was all on Bailey's shoulders in the last game. . . She requested Eye of the Tiger in the car on the way to the fields so she could get pumped up. And late in the second half. . .
