GUESS WHAT!! Hunter's high school baseball team is going to the quarter finals of the playoffs Saturday! If you are down near Forrest, LA, come join us in cheering for the Demons!
Hunter had gotten out of sports almost entirely until this year. (See that number 11?!)
Something not so good happened causing him to transfer to another school. Ya know, sometimes it takes a big change to see a BIG change!! And sometimes we don't know that something BETTER is waiting around the corner. Something that comes with change. And this change of schools has been AWESOME for my eldest nephew! He is back to his roots.
Hunter is an ol' country boy at heart. He likes mud digging, four wheel drive trucks, and thankfully, he is remembering that he loves baseball!!
We spent many an hour at ballparks when the boys were young. But, as they got older, they just sort of let it go by the wayside.
I don't think I thought I would ever say it, but I have really missed being at those games!!
I miss sacrifice bunts, the strategic stealing of second base with a man on third, RBI's, and nachos with peppers on the side. Just sayin'!
For as many hours as I have spent at the ballpark, it is strange to me that this is a fairly new occurence for my girlies!
They weren't around when the boys were playing. And since they've been born, neither their dad or I play anymore either. Daddy decided Ellie needed to wait one more year until she joins the tee ball ranks, so she's not been introduced to the ballpark much either.
Gabbi Girl couldn't care less about a ballgame! THERE'S a DOG in the midst!
And that is all she had eyes for the whole time.
Oh Gabs, really?! Seriously, she LOVES this!
And I just let her play with them. I keep thinking she'll be a vet someday!
I dont' think these little furry babies will be at this weekend's game, so she'll have to do what she usually does.... Dig in the dirt. That's her other favorite thing.
So while she and Ellie are scrounging through the nasty sandpiles, I will be cheering for my sweet nephew.
