Why I Love Boys!

Boys are so fascinating to me. There are so many reasons I love having boys. They’re dirty. They usually smell like little dogs. They’re sweaty. They’re silly. They’re dirty. They love their mama. They bring their mama worms. Their mama screams when they bring her worms.

The main reason I love having boys is the opportunity of growing a boy into a man. Husband. Father. This is serious. This is a huge responsibility. This is a privilege.  This is war.

Take Me Out to the Ballgame


It seems that i get fewer pictures of them playing ball every season. I think the culprit it Sadie running around during the games. Also, the boys would rather me video each at bast so they can see how well they are hitting. DSC_0216 DSC_0221

This summer they both attend a local baseball camp. It was Monday-Friday from 9-3 each day. They learned a few things about baseball and a few more things about life. It was a learning experience for their Mommy too. Much to our surprise and delight, they both were given first place ribbons. Judd’s was in base running. Jake did well in hitting.
