Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports? Ha! I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.
The thing is, he doesn't discriminate. Baseball, basketball, football, soccer...you name it, we play it!
Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.
We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet.
We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats," John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers, "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet.
And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops! That's a blast from the past!
He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET!
And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break? Not this boy!
I never thought in a million years that I would enjoy sports. I was so wrong! There is something about a dirty faced, snotty-nosed little boy that captivates the soul, and I can't take my eyes off of him as he plays. I know that deep in his heart he's learning to dream.
You just keep reaching for the sky, sweet boy!
