Wordless Wednesday: Days of Madness and Memories
I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN THAT SEEING THE WEINERMOBILE WOULD SIGNAL THE BEGINNING OF ECLECTIC MEMORIES FOR MY GANG. A couple of Saturdays ago we were driving along and saw the Oscar Mayer ambassador in a drug store parking lot. My husband complied to my begging and pulled over to the odd sight.
Then one day my son, William, used a Dr. Who reference to do his homework. He officially outed our family as a set of nerds! (To be honest, that wasn’t a secret anyway.) I took a picture of his TARDIS with all the coordinates. I love that it says “Police Box” like the real Doctor’s vehicle.
Last Saturday the baseball play occurred which — according to my husband — has become the single best sports play in our family history. William was in the outfield. He does a great job, but when you are in the outfield position you need your coach to sometimes encourage you by saying, “Are you baseball ready William?”
This time he was ready with no one saying a word. The ball came his way, he looked up into the sun, reached up, and then caught the ball which ended the inning as the third out. It was final and decisive and a glorious moment for our boy. He pulled the glove down and just stared at the mitt with marvel.
And then his teammates started chanting, “William, William, William…” See the number 6 to the left in this photo? They were cheering him into the dugout. It was a great moment for him. One of those you’ll remember forever.
And the chanting went on as William ran to get his batters helment for the next inning. Love this team. Love the coaches. It has been a great season.
And he won one of the game balls given out that day. It was a banner day for the whole team with lots of plays. How do you like that expression?
Jordan, my beloved daughter, turned 15 this week. So hard to believe. We made a little family fanfare at the Japanese restaurant. With a gong. She may or may not have been embarrassed.
Later William’s silly ten-year-old brother grin showed up in this photo of Grace, her Pop Pop, and Ms. Mary. Total photo bomb!
Finally, I took the opportunity to practice different settings on the camera during the “Super Moon” last weekend. None of mine turned out as masterpieces, but I learned a great deal by experimenting. I did love how this shot looked all mysterious with the swirled clouds and the tree silhouettes.
So what did the full moon bring to your family?
