This is Scott posting for Courtney since obviously she has better things to do than blog. I don’t know what, but I guess it may have something to do with having four kids at home for the summer. And so I decided to post for her since I obviously have nothing better to do (although my “to-do” list next to me says otherwise, but if I write “blogging for Courtney” on my do-to list then I am being productive…. right?) Ok, here it goes…
As many of you know Courtney is a HUGE baseball fan. She has loved the game as long as she can remember. Her favorite team is the Baltimore Orioles who play at Camden Yards. So, when it was time to name our first born son, obviously she wanted to name him after her favorite team, but since Baltimore and Oriole were kind of lame and Ripken (her favorite player) was just too over the top (and trust me she campaigned for that one but I told her “no way”), she settled for Camden.
As she has watched her son grow up she has dreamed of the day when he would take an interest in baseball and when the two of them could spend hours in the back yard playing catch (I think she cried at that part in Field of Dreams when the dead father and the son played catch because she thought “hey what about the mom, doesn’t she get to play too?”) Well that time may have come for Courtney.
Camden started playing tee-ball last month. He really seems to enjoy it, at least the hitting part. He also enjoys tackling his own teammates or the opposing team’s players if needed. Not sure how tackling fits into tee-ball, but I’m sure it does somehow.
Here are some pictures of Camden playing tee-ball. His mom could not be prouder.
Look for more posts from Courtney coming soon (school starts in a couple weeks and then she will definitely have nothing better to do 🙂 )
