A Voice in the Wilderness

As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there's a twilight where everything remains seemingly unchanged, and it is in such twilight that we must be aware of change in the air, however slight, lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness. -- William O.

Jaja's First T-Ball Game

This past week, people all across the nation celebrated opening day for baseball.

Yesterday, Jaja's team - the Isotopes - played their very first T-ball game.

This was his first time up at bat.

Here he is running to second base

... chatting with the second baseman

... blasting to third base

... safe at Third

... ready for home

preparing to slide into home plate

Jaja is the shortest player on the team - at three years old, he is a year younger than all of his team mates

but, he plays with a lot of heart. He loves the game.

Post-game congratulations

and finally, a walk home on the shoulders of his best friend and his biggest fan - his daddy.

Too Cute!! Are you sure his daddy's his biggest fan? His grandpa seems like a pretty big fan, himself!

Dude, that is awesome! I'm glad you're enjoying that little guy. You know how fast time goes by and pretty soon they're off to college. Look at Matthew, your baby is now a smart, handsome man. Hey we have to get together soon. Theresa and I want to see your new digs. We've been slammed with Nikki's dance competion coming up. Regionals, luckily, are in Albuquerque but we have to go to Southern California for national competition. Give me a call when you get a chance. I hope all is well with you and yours.
