My Baseball Boy

Last night was Josh's last t-ball game for the year. The Red Devils finished their season with no losses! Okay, maybe no wins either since they don't keep score, but I'm still a proud mama!

Josh did great this season. He seems to do a lot better in the sports that aren't as high contact. He had lots of fun, too, and is sad that he's all done until next year.

Since this is my blog and I am technically allowed to write whatever I'd like, I'm gonna brag on my boy for just a minute. At the end of the game, the coach passed out trophies and a prize bag for each of the boys and said something positive about each boy.

When he got to Josh, he said how well he'd done playing baseball, but then he said the part that really made me proud. He said that if he had a daughter the boys' age, he'd want her to marry Josh. We got compliments all season long about what a polite and kind boy Josh is, and as a mother I couldn't be more proud that the coach chose Josh's character to compliment last night.

Sure, I'd be proud if he were an all-star athlete, but I'm even more proud that he's an all-star person.

That's my boy!

It's Like Riding a Bike, Right?

Somehow I've blinked and it's been almost three months since my last post.

How does that happen!?!

I really do miss the blog world. I used to read and write during my nursing periods with Megan and now that she's a big sippy cup drinker, I am having trouble finding the time in my day to sit at the computer. Somehow, kids need me, chores need me, and life beyond the monitor and keyboard needs me.

But still, I like connecting with friends and family through blogs, and I love looking back at the record I have of all the bright spots God has blessed me with.

So I'm hoping I can hop back on this bloggy bike and pick up where I left off. Hopefully some of you are still out there waiting to ride along with me!
