Having teenagers, I find myself asking quite often, “Will they ever mature?” Don’t get me wrong, I love my kids and they are wonderful, but in so many ways they are typical.
Tonight we traveled to Birmingham to play baseball. Brandon plays on a team called the North Alabama Sharks. Tonight was to be his first night to join the team because he has been on the school team and could not start travel ball until that was over.
Anyway, tonight we travelled two and a half hours only to get there and the bottom fell out of the sky. It rained and rained. The field was so nice that they put a tarp on it, but it was not enough. We could not play the game. Brandon was slated to pitch too. What a bummer!!
The night was not lost however. Brandon had the best attitude about it. We laughed and talked all the way home, except the last few miles he fell asleep. He even made the comment that it wasn’t a total loss and he was glad we were able to spend the time. I guess, at least for today, he is growing up. It’s great to see the victories in our kids’ lives.
