Go Rattlers!

I love watching Cameron's baseball games. The kids are finally old enough to sort of know what they're doing and Cameron's team has won or tied all but their first game, so they're pretty good. I remember when Cameron first started in T-ball, and he would be digging in the dirt during the game or dancing around. Not anymore. He always knows exactly where the play is and how many outs they have. He knows the score. He wants to win! Watching him improve has been one of my greatest joys as a mother. He has gained confidence that I hope will carry through to other aspects of his life. I finally remembered my camera today. Mr. Dimple didn't disappoint. He hit and he scored a run. It was a proud walk back to the car after the game. Baseball season is coming to a close, in a week both boys will have their last game. Because of work I have only made it to a fraction of their games which I hate, but the ones I have been to I have made sure to cheer louder than any of the other parents and I've really been able to enjoy them. Today I made a scene and climbed up the fence surrounding the field so I didn't have to take pictures through it. I'm sure it wasn't pretty but I did it for my kid. Because he's awesome and I wanted him to know it. I'll climb things much taller than a fence for him, that's for sure.

The third pic where he is swinging the bat looks just like Gavin- I seriously had to stare at the picture for a while. I would have loved to see you climbing the fence. I am sure it was very graceful and I am sure Cameron was mortified :)

We were talking about Halloween for some reason yesterday and I asked Luke what he wanted to be. He said "a ghost and Mason will be yoda, huh" I can't believe he remembers!

Miss you!
