Got our tree. A little later than usual this year. Jack was missing because he was at practice, of course, and we just couldn't put it off any longer.
She wanted to be the Wicked Witch of the West. She came up with the idea all on her own. She wanted a witch's hat, a broomstick, and for me to paint her face green. I didn't even know she knew who that was. Afterwards, we watched the Wizard of Oz. She kept saying "I'll get you my pretty".
Her friends decided to go with the theme, and we had Dorothy and the Scarecrow. They loved the picture taking and took their roles seriously. It was a warm but windy night, in the 80s, and her hat wouldn't stay on.
The older boys had matching masks. Cameron has never really liked dressing up.
We also had a Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Elsa & Anna. And Black Panther and teen wolf.
Jack walked around the neighborhood, with a basketball of course, with Kaleb and his friend, Cameron. (It was dark and I didn't get to get any pictures of them. But they probably wouldn't have let me take one anyways.) I did get this picture of Jackson making plans.
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.
First softball game. She had the most fun. Got to pitch for the very first time. And had 2 hits! So excited for this season.
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.
