Last night, Caden and I were playing with his new baseball and bat he had won from the Louisiana Tech’s F.U.N.N. day on Saturday. I was hitting the ball and he was running to retrieve it. Â What a great way to tire him out at then end of the day.
Spring brings lots of little flowers in our backyard that I can’t mow down fast enough and since I hadn’t mowed in a couple of weeks they are everywhere.
After one of my hits, Caden runs full speed towards the ball, then stops only a few feet from the ball, bends down and starts picking flowers. Â He had found the white dandelions and lost his focus of what he was going for, which made us laugh.
When this happens, we say “Squirrel!” (from the movie Up!) Â I’ve been known to pick a flower or two or stare at the clouds while in Center field during T-ball and Pee-wee, so Caden comes by it honestly! ha! ha!
