Little Friends

Never underestimate the importance of friends. Especially the little friends.   There will come a time in the not-to-distant future when our teen and tween daughters will put up some resistance when we tell that we’re spending a week at the beach with ‘just us’ (meaning just our family). Until then we can thwart off the struggle and appreciate it when some of their little friends are at the same beach as well. Even if it is a spring break that felt more like a winter break.

We be balling on Saturdays…. lately it’s been back to the soccer fields only this time its with middle child. This is after tennis/piano/violin but before cheerleading tryouts which start this week.  She’s approaching approached that age where she doesn’t like me taking her photo anymore (clearly that hasn’t stopped me). From what I recall, if she is anything like her older sister, it is a short lived phase and pretty soon the lens will once again become a magnet for smiling faces.

Saturday called for a little bit of divide and conquer at our house with the boys veering off for a t-ball game (along with Britton who was guilted into watching her brother’s game after I reminded her how many hours he has spent at her games) while me and Kens headed to an simultaneous soccer game.  Nothing says, ‘I’m a parent’ like dragging chairs across fields with sunscreen, water and snacks in tow.

Meanwhile this little guy has been keeping his eye on the ball at the baseball fields with his buddies. He received the (weekly rotating) sportsmanship medal at Saturday’s game is hasn’t taken it off since. He proudly wore it to church yesterday- then to Costo and Old Navy. He lives a very exciting life like that. Please contact his agent for signing opportunities.
