Several parents from our church decided to start their own baseball league to teach their children the basics of baseball. A lot of them play themselves, so this gave them just one evening of baseball with all of their children, rather than having a whole week of games. It was so neat to see all the kids...probably 35-40 of them out in the field with their parents, read mostly dads, coaching them.
Aidan on the other hand took it very seriously, from learning how to throw the ball, catch the ball, hit the ball, or run the bases.
It was about family the way family should be done - Taking time away from work, computers, televisions, and instead enjoying one another, spending time together outside with other young families with similar values, laughing together, and trying to stay warm together.
I will remember these snapshots for a long time...for the smiles on the faces of my grandsons but for more than that...for the blessing of family!
