Our Little Boogers

Sharing our lives: two kids, two full-time jobs, one old house, and plenty of love and laughter. And baseball.

She'll skin her knees dressed like that

We do our best to give the kids all they need. I want to be a good role model to them spiritually, financially, emotionally, and physically. One thing I know they've gotten is my love of baseball. The boy even has a schedule of games he announces days in advance, though, hilariously, most of the time they end up postponed.

"Dad, my game Saturday is going to be cancelled because it's going to rain."
"Dad, I had a game tonight but it was cancelled because we had to eat dinner."

Jimmy Dugan (A League of Their Own) once said, "Baseball is what gets inside you. It's what lights you up..."

This picture of my little blonde made me think of that movie. I just don't know how they played ball in skirts.

 And somehow my boy made the USA baseball team. Way to go kiddo!

I so glad there's baseball around all the time. But you know, I'd still love them even if they end up playing soccer.

Just not as much. :-)


  1. Love of baseball is a wonderful legacy! These two are precious and ridiculous at the same time. What fun. love, Grandma

  2. Their Grandma earned extra points at a meeting with the IT folks when one fellow noticed that she had "Pitchers and catchers report" on her pocket calendar. It is indeed a sport for all ages.

  3. That picture of the boy in the uniform reminds me so much of his dad when he was that age. It is definitely in the genes!
