As Summer Winds Down

The autumn equinox isn't officially here for 22 more days, but fall is definitely in the cooler air and "summer is over". We've already had one football game and school starts tomorrow. But before the children head back to school, there's always time for a softball game.

Last weekend the football coaching families came over for a cook-out. Coach Reuter's kids were right around the same age as Ally and Cy, and there were two boys in the lot, so Cy was overjoyed to have a BOYS team to play the GIRLS. (You recall, our son is outnumbered 4 to 1 in our house.) Mason, Carter, and Cy took on Mackenzie, Ally, Paige and Shae.

I'm not sure how the game went, but aren't these the cutest little outfielders you've ever seen? So ready, so eager!

Thank goodness they don't keep score. There was enough yammering about the pitches without a "we're winning" taunt-fest.

The boys wanted overhand baseball pitching, but technically, the girls reminded them, "we are playing with a softball," so fastpitching was required.

Thank goodness there was no home plate umpire, either!

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me."--John 14:6
