They were eating dinner. And talking nonstop. And laughing.
And I used to worry that they would never like each other. That they would always argue and fight. And don't get me wrong, that still happens. But it's happening less and less. And they have more things in common the older they get. And despite their differences, they're still brothers.
And thankfully, they share the same sense of humor. That's the thing I love the most.
(I tried to sneak a picture of this sweetness. Cam didn't mind. Jack was not amused, as usual.)
So many to choose from our trip to Rocky Mt. this weekend. But this one just stood out. How much he's grown. And not just in size. In baseball.
I remember when he used to be that kid with the wild arm. He could almost always make the stop at third. But I would hold my breath when he made that throw to first. His form was just not consistent. I used to tell Josh, "Maybe he isn't meant to play third base". Josh would reassure me one day he would just get it. That he had the strength and the arm to make the throw. It would just take maturity, and lots of practice, and eventually he would learn to be accurate 99.9% of the time. And, as usual, in baseball, Josh was right.
Now, I trust him to make the stop, follow through with the throw, get the out. Make the play. I love to watch him just grow. And figure it out. And get better. And love the sport more each day.
It was a great day for him. He hit a 3 run homer over the fence. Then pitched 4 innings in the championship, throwing 60% strikes, and giving up only 2 runs against a tough team. We won 9-3 in that final game. He was all smiles.
We had a little fun trying out something new this week. Took Bella to a cheer clinic. Of course, she's in love and wants to go back. But, it might have to wait another year. Between dance, baseball, basketball, and well, everything in between....this momma is in over her head.
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.
