The back of the van is no longer an empty place for the groceries, but instead, carries lawn chairs, blankets, and baseball gear. And dirt.
Buying Gatorade in bulk.
Bubble gum and sunflower seeds.
High fives and lots of "Atta Boy!"
Baseball games under the lights.
Sandwiches for dinner.
The old, familiar lesson that it's not always about winning.
And a whole lot of OxiClean.
