Most of you already know I spent the weekend at the ball field in Long Beach, in the blazing sun and searing heat that made for temps into the hundreds. It was Porter's first tournament weekend of the season, and I can't think of anywhere else that I'd rather be when he's out on the field playing ball. Although he usually catches, this year he's mostly been playing 3rd base as the coaches are trying to make them more versatile, well-rounded players and playing on their individual strengths. Here are a few shots from the weekend that I wanted to share with ya'll. In the background you can see that Long Beach still looks awful from Katrina. There wasn't much shade at all, but the boys still came ready to play and played well.
a mother, an artist, a good listener, an empathizer, a problem solver, a small business owner, a proud etsian, my own worst critic, a better person today than i was yesterday because of it, very intuitive, extremely open, fiercely loyal, deep but uncomplicated, easily distracted by shiny things & pretty stuff, able to find beauty at a garbage dump, not a fan of drama or feeling like i've wasted time or people who act ugly & derive pleasure from it or bugs that bite or liver or negativity so that's enough of that. i'm finally my own boss and i couldn't be happier. welcome to my head.
