baseball tonight.

not the show.
real little league.
portland style.

nic slid into home to score a run.
on his first time up to bat.
it was awesome. 10 year old boy style.

this sign was definitely my personal highlight of the night.
oliver made it in five minutes~ as soon as he heard about the game.

okay. stella was a highlight too. because she was so pretty.
abigail and elliot just did whatever they wanted.
bikes, jump rope, play ground,
and mud.
there is always mud to be found.
look closely at their pants.
and shoes.
fun times.
and here we go into another baseball season.
i have absolutely no idea how in the world we're going to keep up with this added into our schedule.
one kid.
ONE sport.
i know many of you have done TONS more than that.
actually, i have done tons more than that, but i'm totally out of practice.
and our lives here seem busier.

as i drove home tonight with four tired, muddy kids
i tried to imagine what my life is going to look like in four, six, or eight years...
when ALL FOUR of my kids have schedules like this.

i think i'm going to have nightmares tonight.
