Beyond the Fence

There's a lot of fence in our future, as Fall Ball just
got underway.  (We play baseball year-round in GA.)  Sam is
on a more competitive team for the Fall, and it looks like
a great group of boys.  He's so excited about the real
possibility of an end-of-season tournament.
It's crazy hard to believe that he's old enough for all of
this excitement. I'm realizing that it's been good for both
of us, though...being separated by this lovely fence...

I've spent many days watching & taking pictures through fences like that.. :)
Fun, for your boy!
Football is underway here.. first game Friday night, and go figure - after working like a beast all summer long, one of our twins, who is varsity quarterback, hyper extended his knee this evening in practice.
He's icing it & getting around ok.. hopefully good to play under the lights Friday night! They're VERY excited. (Me, too.. I get my own "Mom" version of pre-season / pre-game jitters!)

How awesome that you can focus on one sport all year long there -
that is how you develop your skills and get REALLY GOOD at it!!

Wow, that is wonderful that you could play ball outdoors all year long. I guess, technically, we could here, too, but summer here is wayyyy too hot.

Love the shot and the year round ball is great. I hope Sam has a great fall season. Can't wait to see more of his game shots!

I had to laugh out loud at that last line! My son (23) is off looking at an apartment this morning. He graduated in December...and has spent much of his college life/first 9 months of adulthood still under our roof. Cause of $$ and not wanting to owe the government his second born as well as his first born. But, he just worked himself up to a raise, and should be able to eek out an existence in his own place very soon. We do well - we're not smothery parents, so it's been fine...and he's been a trooper...but it's so been time for him to be out on his own - for a while. So, the separation line made me laugh - different age/stage...but always a need to adjust the relationship!

Great perspective Dina!

That's a lovely photo! I hope Sam has a great ball season. Can't wait to hear more about it!

That's interesting perspective on the fence, but I like it! Especially since it helps tell the story of his baseball years.

We're headed into basketball season around here, although he did have the option for fall ball, my boy loves his basktetball more and practically lives with it in his hands right now.

Oh, my the growing up can be hard on a us mammas! But fences are good and boys need to grow up to be men and sometimes part of that happens on a ball field :-)

It's hard to make a chain link fence look pretty, but you've sure managed to do it! Lovely. Best of luck to your son and his baseball season! :)
