Basically, there was a lawsuit against EA games for using the likeness of NCAA players for their video game and not paying the players. Brad signed his name to something a while back in case anything came of it. Because there is a likeness of him on the 2011 and 2012 version of the game, the check was his part of the settlement! It was totally unexpected and exciting to us haha. We decided that night that we weren't going to spend the money as part of our regular budget, but that we would think up a few fun things we've been wanting to do.
It was our first time leaving Jaxon without one of us for the night! I did a trade with Kelsey for a few months of preschool for her to have him overnight. She sent me pictures of what they were doing all day and reassured me that they were playing great. He had the best time and was sad when we came to pick him up haha.
