On the Mound...

The two little boys finished up their baseball seasons this past week, but Ryan's team still has a couple more weeks to go.  Ryan has been asking why I haven't shared pictures of him pitching on my blog.  It makes me smile that he stops in and reads what I write (and I know he likes to read the comments too...so thank you so much to all you nice commenters out there).  So...of course, I am obliging his request.  Here he is pitching on Saturday.  His team had a great 4-3 win.  He caught for the first four innings and then came in and pitched the sixth and seventh innings.  This is the first year that they are playing on a full sized baseball field. It is pretty amazing to watch the plays they can make at 13/14 years old.  And...no matter how old they get, it is still nerve wracking to watch your child pitch.  I love watching his confidence grow as he practices more and more and with each year is becoming an even stronger player.

And switching topics :), here is a fun birthday card for a teenage girl in your life.  This is going in my stash for one of my nieces.
The colors are inspired by the  Play Date Cafe Challenge.  I love the bright cheery colors.  Happy Tuesday!

  5. I remember all too well that nervousness when my boys pitched because I knew if they had an off night or if their team lost it would take them a week to get over it. You captured these moments perfectly, the photos are awesome.
    We have a couple weeks of softball left, most of our games have been rained out. Keep up the great work, Ryan!
