This past week, he collided with a teammate at practice and ended up with 4 stitches just above his lip. First time for any of my kids. It was disappointing because he had to sit out for a week and missed 2 games. He was too big for the bed at CHKD and promptly removed his spongebob bandaid as soon as we left. He opted for the lidocaine injection because it was quicker than the gel because he had planned to go to the JV game that night and wasn't going to miss it, despite the fresh stitches and swollen lip.
Update: stitches are out and site looks good and he's cleared to return to basketball. All is right in his world again.
Dad and son and a quiet moment in the dugout. He was actually consoling Cam after a rough day at the plate. My mom heart was breaking, but I am so thankful for the heart of this man.
This was a big birthday. The big 4-0.
His idea was a day date, just the two of us. We drove to Williamsburg Winery. Had brunch. Walked around the winery taking photos of us. And me. Finally, I got to be on the other side of the camera. It was just a sweet and thoughtful idea. Although I felt way out of my comfort zone, I kept thinking how much my kids will appreciate these photos when I'm no longer here.
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.
