Here’s just one of the cute little guys I hang out with these days.
His name’s Elijah. When I moved from Arkansas I left behind a little friend named Elijah, so here I picked up a new one! He lives across the street from me, so I get to see him and his brother and two sisters quite often, which is fine by me! They’re all adorable!
“Take a picture of my big bite!” he says.
I think I wore him out. ;) His big brother Judson, whom I did not get a picture of, reminds me so much of Ethan when he was a kid–red hair and all! So it’s like stepping back in time and playing with my widdle bro again, which is super fun!
Speaking of Ethan, this lil dude shares the same name. He’s from another family of four fun kids that I also hang out with most weeks.
This evening when I was at his house he asked me if I knew Eve, as if we were old acquaintances or something. (How old does he think I am??) Then he made this puzzled expression and said, “Didn’t God take meat from a bone and make the girl?” Umm, sure!
And these are his two brothers, Caleb and Luke. They don’t always stick out their tongues at me, just when I pull the camera out!
Or when they’re not busy playing head dunking in the hammock. These kids crack me up! When I showed up this evening they had just shucked some corn and were playing with the silky strings, calling it “hair”. Caleb was describing what it felt like and decided it feels basgetty-ish. (I think he meant spaghetti. ;) )
The cutesy little toes are brought to you by the doll of the family, Shalom.
That smile, though!!
So now you’re wondering when I’m going to get around to the baseball half of this post?
Last week these two friends and I took off for Chicago to see the Cardinals play the White Sox. (And yes, they really were there to see my team! I love southern friends.)
I had a blast with these two, and the Cardinals had a blast, too . . . getting eight batters across the plate, and even hitting a grand slam! (Which they did again last night, whoop whoop!) It’s never a bad time to be a Cardinal fan, but this year has been exceptionally good. My Kansas fan friend is predicting a Cardinals-Royals world series this year. I’m game!
So yeah, just a few happenings from this summer.
