into the season.








Baseball is going OK. Parker hit the batting cage and found his groove. He has even witnessed (the Gospel) to one of the troublemakers on the team. Parker came on a little strong not holding back at all, but the kid actually received it and acknowledged that anyone could be saved. Especially after Parker told the kids that his Dad was a bartender once and even took drugs and God still saved a sinner like him, then eventually became a preacher. Ha! Parker rocks! Wish I had guts like him.

Ethan on the other hand has acted like he's been playing baseball and with the same teammates all his 7 years of life. Ethan has this ability to feel very at home in any environment. He never misses a beat. Gotta love a kid who makes himself at home in any situation. Although he's been trying to spend his life savings at the snack bar during their games. We are constantly trying to teach him about saving his money and having patience. Just when I think I've got him cornered he finds out that you can get free candy if you retrieve foul balls...so far he's been able to capitalize on this twice. Amazing. The kid has a natural blessing over his life. I have many stories like that about Ethan. You wouldn't believe it.

I love my boys. I love that they are so not like me, but just awesome in so many ways. I have to thank God for that. He made them.
