Our Three "Great" Grandons

Three terrific guys. Justin, 17, on the far right,is your fellow AM3 Blog member. As you can see, Justin is currently hobbling around on a broken foot thanks to a skateboarding accident...that, and the fact that school finals were happening, is why you have not seen any updates lately on Justin's Blog ...Tyler, on the far left, will be 14 on August 17. He graduated from Middle School last week...We were there to enjoy it. Ryan, 9, is the youngest but by no means the weakest. He is strong willed and strong in concentration and sports. He is a special little guy but then, they all are.
It is a long story and for another time, but we also enjoyed some great baseball action in the Montreal area last weekend as Tyler and his team played against a local Quebec team.

Sorry I have been away for so long...much to tell you about our travails in Quebec...not many decent photos to show you of baseball or the trip...that's another story ;-)
