Jacob played his first 'kid pitch' game tonight. I can hardly believe he is at this point. The games now have umpires, strike-outs, walks, and all the other baseball rules kids need to follow. Jacob pitched one inning and did a great job. He struggled a little bit but he battled through it and he never gave up. Considering he'd never pitched before I was so happy for him and with his performance.
My golf game is nothing to blog about but I don't play for the score. I play because it gives me the chance to talk for a long time with a good friend. It is a chance to debrief life a little bit and get some feedback and straightening out in my thinking. I wish everyone had a friend like I do who listens to my junk, empathizes when necessary, and challenges me to grow as a husband, father, leader, and Christian.
Our softball team finally won a Tuesday night league game tonight! I love playing softball with these guys. We play in a non-church league and we do our best to be competitive and still be an example for Jesus in our community. I think we do a great job of it. I also think it is pretty cool that guys from church are building relationships with one another while having a fantastic time.
