Home Run Kiddo!

Jackson had team pictures and a baseball game last night, and was upset that Jeremy would be out of town and unable to see him play. Before the game he said, "Mom, how about you video me when I'm at bat so Daddy can still get to see me play." I told him that I would be happy to do that, and proceeded to camp out right behind home plate at Jackson's first time at bat.

Imagine my absolute delight when I caught Jackson scoring a home run on video! He hit a line drive to right field and rounded first base easily. He slid into second base and when the other team made an error, he took off running again. I thought for sure that he was going to be tagged out at home, but the catcher fumbled the ball and Jackson made it home. So exciting! Enjoy the video!

I Survived! Again!

So I officially survived my 2nd tax season working at an accounting firm. For a little while yesterday it was questionable if I would actually make it. I was still filing extensions at 4:30, but at 4:55, I called it a day and went to our company's tax party where we enjoyed a few cold drinks (I had a few cold cokes), appetizers, and a beautiful view of the Alabama River. 

I plan on being more active with my blogging now that I don't feel like I'm going to die from exhaustion the moment I walk in the door.

See y'all again soon!

Bases Loaded

Jackson had his first game for this baseball season on this past Tuesday night. He is number 13 for the Phillies, and he did so good! He is alternating between first base and pitching this season, and I'm excited to see what he learns.

During the first game Jackson scored a run at his first at bat, was tagged out making a mad dash for home on his second at bat, and caused me to grow 3 new gray hairs at his third at bat.

Picture this....

The game is tied 11-11. Our team is last at bat, and the bases are loaded with 2 outs. Jackson comes up to bat and gets a strike on his first swing. Second swing he hits a foul ball, so now he has 2 strikes against him. His third and final swing he hits a line drive to first base where the first baseman tipped the ball off his glove and it ended up dropping to the ground as Jackson was running to first. In the mean time, the kid on third made it home, and scored the winning run making the final score of the game 12-11.

Whew....this Mama's heart was pounding so hard, but I was so proud of how he played. We have a super special kiddo, and I'm so grateful to call him mine!
