Apparently I didn't get but a few pictures New Years Eve. Which was a great time for our kiddos. Lots of singing and performances, a ping pong tournament (Cam won), tons of delicious food, enjoying the neighbors' fireworks, and counted down with all the littles still wide awake and toasting their sparkling cider while banging on pots and pans in the street.
Spent the days following Christmas in Atlanta to support the LHS Eagles. Took the two younger ones (since we didn't see much of Jack) to the zoo. Cam really enjoyed it. Bella might have complained most of the time. But we still had a good day.
Today, during your game, you didn't pitch well. You had a few strikes and struck out 5 batters over 2.5 innings. But you walked. A lot. And gave up 18 runs. But you kept going. Never gave up. Never got upset or showed any emotion. You just kept throwing. For the first time, the coach pulled you. I honestly didn't think you realized what that meant, and you were definitely tired. After the post game huddle, you walked over to me and immediately tears started flowing and you buried your face in my stomach. "I pitched bad. I threw too many balls". Somehow, you know and you were disappointed in yourself. But I was still so proud. Proud that you kept it together. Proud that you kept your head in the game and didn't get upset until the game was done. Proud that you just kept throwing.
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, middle school, wine, video games, and schedules. I started this blog because I love taking pictures, and I needed a place to document our life. I wanted a place to write it all down, to remember 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.
