Default Brag on my kiddos a min

Many of the older TBH members have watched my kiddos grow up. Trey was 3 when he appeared in first hunting videos on here with me..... he is 18 now and couldn’t be more proud! Katelyn was born nearly live here on TBH on a live thread literally only to go from the highest of moments to nearly losing her and being told to call in family and preacher etc that she wouldn’t make it. The prayer thread then was pages and pages and pages ..... it meant a lot to wife and I. We received church bulletins and pray cards from all over with her name. She pulled through - found as she was deaf at 3 ish and she was implanted with a cochlear implant. She is freshman in HS now and rocking it.

This week Trey was named Valedictorian for HHS - he has one of the highest GPA’s school as seen since using current system last many years. Over 4.5 something - He will graduate with nearly 30 college hours with a 100 in early single class taken. He is possibly going to end up at Sam Houston but is still looking at playing baseball somewhere. He gave up playing football this year after being 3 year varsity left offensive tackle to peruse his love of ball. He is pitching like he never has. He’s 4 and 1 in district with 2 earned runs total through 5 games. The one he got the lost it was 1-0 Team is 5-2 in district making playoffs first time in many years. He also bats cleanup and is on fire batting 400-500 in district. Anyway..... he is not only smart, he is very athletic and also an Eagle Scout and has a solid head on his shoulders..... pray and hope he goes on and does great things.

Kate has pitched EVERY SINGLE pitch for varsity softball as a freshman all season. She too bats cleanup and has hit like 8 homer runs between Hs and select team and the fence doesn’t get any bigger. Her team is 6-2 in district which is best record ever and they too have made playoffs for possibly first time in school history. Hard having both kids playing same nights and same times and both doing a lot of pitching. Kate is getting all kind of recognition throughout district and has a very good shot at MVP (district) and newcomer of the year in VB and softball for varsity as a fish. 3A school yeah ....but she is still doing great!

Anyway. I only post this extremely proud and bragging post cause so many of you watched these kiddos grow up and seen them at bownanza etc. trey was 3 when he won the bow at bownanza and 8 years old when he smoked a doe with it - regular compound bow

Thanks for letting me brag a min and continued prayers both kids stay healthy and keep heads screwed on straight

here is Trey first TBH video at 3

As one of the "many older TBH members" I must say, you and your wife did it right!

I have always been a fan of the "Howard" family post here on TBH.

Best of luck to both of them.

Congratulations on the kids, I recall the stories of your son, the birth of your daughter and all the prayers, and then the ear implants.
Can't believe they are grown up, makes me feel old

When he was little he had long silky hair and my wife went for pizza and I buzzed it. She was livid. He buzzed it all the way till Hs and last couple years has let it get a little longer. This is longest itís ever been he isnít catching much this year so didnít buzz it. Momma doesnít want him to cut it till after pictures which he argues he ainít taking any . I ask him all the time - ready for me to buzz it again!

Another big week for both. Kate got Newcomer of Year for All District! Treys hasnít been announced yet but he should get something for pitching - dominated our district!

Trey isnít really the Prom type. We talked him into going since Sr prom and he was voted King. He was like , I donít need all this extra attention

congrats on the kids success. I have only been on here about 7 years now so I missed all the earlier stuff. I know from my daughter how much work it is to be valedictorian, especially while in sports.
