Thinkin at the sink
I wish this picture came out better! This kid loves being in the tub..the sink..just not in the ocean! He must be like his mom...a major wimp in cold water.
So we are still knee deep in baseball here. Stephen's team is going to Cooperstown NY to play which is exciting. Driving there...not so much. Anyway, I love watching his games. 15 year olds can really play. At a recent game Steve and I were sitting next to the Grandfather of one of our players. He said something that has stuck with me for a few days...something that is true not only in baseball but in life. He said it's not the kid who is making the great plays and hits that needs the love...it's the kid who is struggling out there. How true. We're all clapping and high fiving and giving the game ball to the star players...what about the kid who might be in a funk? That's the kid that needs the extra lovin' and confidence boostin' right now...don't you think?
