Luke is really having fun playing baseball this season. And, I have to admit, he's getting quite good at it! He's taking the game much more seriously, which you can tell just by looking at his stance in some of these pictures. It's so cute to see him watching baseball on TV and he's just now getting in to the whole win/lose thing. His little competitive spirit is coming out and I can see that testosterone start to do it's thing.
This season he's playing a new position for the first time: catcher. He likes all the pads and equipment...and especially that he gets to wear a 'cup'. It's really quite hilarious. He's also a darn good first baseman. He caught the ball twice yesterday for outs on the other team! His batting stance has also improved. He hit the ball twice and scored points for his team. These things together are what won Luke the game ball! He was so excited.
There are only 3 games left in this season and then we'll take some time off over the winter to focus on his music talents. This boy has music in him for sure! It's such a privilege to uncover the gifts God has put in my boys. It's like a treasure hunt as we discover their passions and talents.I pray I'm able to foster and guide them in the way they should go to fulfill the calling God has placed on their lives.
Love my boys!
