Son Catcher

 
 Sam went from 2nd base to catching very easily...
 
 
As someone with a bad knee, all I could think was
that he'll be in a lot of pain at 40, but for now, I
am so very proud of how well he did...

My brother always played catcher. And yes, he does have some knee issues...but not terrible ones.

And he loved that position.

=)

Great shots, Dina!

I love the image on your new header. :)

Love it Dina! Love to watch kids be fierce playing sports. Hoping those knees stay good and flexible. I'm voting for you everyday, friend!

Great shots!!

Way to go Sam! Catchers are pretty awesome and it's so great to watch a child excel and love what they do!

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

I think it's the most difficult of all of the positions Dina. So much responsibility rests on the catcher's shoulders. Yay Sam!

What a nice promotion...this is a very hard position to play. You have to be so proud.

Looks like he's really enjoying being the catcher. You've captured some great shots of him. I liked the B/W shot a lot.

Love the black and white. I played catcher in softball as a child and I don't have knee problems, so maybe he won't. Have a blessed day!

June Caedmon said...

Fun times, Dina! I know what you mean about the knees, I can't remember doing anything to deserve mine ;)

Our twin boys are fifteen, we lost our varsity catcher from the team unexpectedly a few games into the season, and they tossed one of our boys in from short stop with about an hours notice. He did so well, that the coaches told him he'll be catching for 3 more years. (they were just freshmen this year)
They both caught some in their younger years, but it had been a while. It's very special for me as a mom to see them play as pitcher / catcher. Love these photos! They grow so quickly.

Nothing better for young ones than sports. Teaches so many good things. He is cute as can be. I know you are proud of him.
Blessings

I'd just like to be able to get up without using my hands when I'm in the squatting position!

Sarah Halstead said...

That is awesome. Great photos!

Karen said...

Terrific shots proud mama!

My boy always wanted to play catcher in his baseball years. Unfortunately baseball was not his thing as he just didn't really grasp so of it. He loves and excels at basketball now.

Great pics!

Ann said...

Loved your post and photos. My son pitched from age 7 through a four-year career at the University of Arkansas. Now that he's living and working in the "real" world, I have to get my baseball "fix" through others' eyes--such as yours. Great post!

I've got a bad knee, too and I think the same thing all the time. Ouch, that's gonna hurt in 30-40 years! LOL
