The other morning, 7:50 a.m., and you are playing basketball in the driveway before school.
Yesterday, you played basketball in your first AAU tournament. 3 games in 8 hours. The next day, you were back at it again, playing in the driveway. In your uniform, I might add. Then, when your brother and cousin no longer wanted to play and took the football into the street, you continued to play, all by yourself. Dribbling and shooting. Always dribbling and shooting.
Tonight, you stayed afterschool for Intramurals. When I picked you up and pulled into the driveway, you didn't even take your backpack inside. But instead you left it in the garage and went back out to the driveway to shoot. By yourself, in the dark, and the cold. Dribbling and shooting.
I love you, kid.
My name is Kaci. I am a working mom of 3. Wife to Josh. Mom to Jackson, Cameron & Isabella. My life is dinner, homework, baseball, basketball, grocery lists, laundry, wine, video games, and bath time. I started this blog because I am passionate about photography and journaling, and because I wanted a place to write it all down, to rememeber little details so easily forgotten in the mad rush that is the life of a family of 5. Through my photos and words, I endeavor to capture our story.
