Learning a Lesson

I don't even know what he's doing.  Brushing the..grass?
Clay is playing right field..for the Springdale 13-year-old All-Stars.  He was so happy.  He even caught a pop fly in the first game.

I was proud of his playing.  He's not scared of the ball, and by golly, he swings and hits!

Ethan was sooo sweet.  He was washing Carter's booboo with a baby wipe.  He was just being so tender, and I had to capture it.  Meanwhile, Carter is trying to wipe Mary Claire's nose with a wipe.  She's not so amused.

Shannon's son Christian was also playing on the Springdale team, so her youngest son Grayson hung out with us.  He's so sweet!  He shared his Cheetos, and Carter shared his crayons. : )

I went in to tell Clay good night (and to get out of the shower!), and he'd laid out his uniform for the next morning.  He has Respect for the uniform. : )

Meanwhile, we finally got the neighbor's new basketball backboard back up..whew.  It was a 60" wide goal, the box was taller than me!  He's still working off the $220.  It was an expensive lesson..but I think he's learned it.  We've all learned it's super hard to own up to your mistakes.  And then pay for them.  But, ohhh, when it's all rectified-what a great feeling.

  If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from
                                             all unrighteousness.  1 John 1:9
