My brother has a log cabin in North Georgia. We love it there. Ever since Nathan could talk he he has referred to the mountains as, "the High mountains." I thought that was just a "baby" thing and now that he is eight almost nine he would just call them the mountains. But, the other day I heard him ask his uncle when were we going to he High mountains. Well, we are on our way to the High mountains and we are very excited!
Baseball is over and I miss it. Our boys did really good in their little tournament. Nathan ended up playing first base instead of his usual catcher spot. He played it like he had played it all year long. We lost the first two qualifying rounds which seeded us. We won the next one and returned to play a fourth game on Sunday morning. The team we played against was a powerhouse. The game started off with them running away with the score. But, our little Pinecrest boys fought back hard! They came within 2 runs and we ran out of time and the umps called the game. The final score was 14-16. I think the parents were more upset than the boys. They just wanted to go run around and play football or hide-n-seek.
We watch the Rays most every night that they are on TV but it's just not the same as watching my boy round the bases after smacking that little white ball, or throw a runner out at second from home plate, or strike a batter out with his "fast ball."
That's right, my boy hit a home run in the first game of the All Star tournament. Even though we lost, Nathan played a great game. He played first base and had ten outs with two of them on a double play. The third baseman threw the ball to Nathan and he turned around and threw it right back to him for a double play. He had his mama screaming her head off in the bleachers. There are very few things I like to do more than watch my boy play baseball.
Todd and I are from Lithia, Florida. We have one son, Nathan, and he is 8 years old. Todd worked for a construction company for 27 years as a safety manager. I taught ninth grade physical science for 14 years and for the last eight years, I have been a stay at home wife/mom. We are missionary associates, and lived in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Our primary work there was with a small struggling church in Anchovy. Anchovy is located about 5 miles outside of Montego Bay and is a very poor community.
