Proud of our son...

Chase had a double header baseball game today.  He was catcher for the second game.  You got a runner from third, headed fast towards home...The ball is thrown to Chase.  He's got the ball, takes a step towards the runner, braces himself, the runner starts to slide, Chase is crouched down low, he blocks the runner from getting to the home plate, but hits him hard.  He's OUT! (the third out of that inning...) The runner gets up, and starts walking away.  Chase catches up to him, near the other teams dugout, pats the kid on the back, and asks him if he's ok...

One dad walks over to me and says:  With what Chase just did, shows the kind of character he has.  My, oh my...I don't think I could have stood any taller...

Mike, we done good!

Chase later told me that when the kid was getting up, he told Chase, 'Nice Play...' That also shows the character of the other kid...wish I knew his name. I hope he shared that with his mom and dad too. "Great job, other kids mom and dad!!!"

That makes my heart leap! You both are amazing parents because I see beauty in all your kids every time I'm around them.
