We Need A Name!

The Delwood Grasshoppers, the tee-ball team that I coach, needs a mascot name! We’re rebranding to use our own mascot, instead of the Minor League Greenboro Grasshoppers logo, and I think it is time for our little grasshopper to be given a proper name.

Look at this little guy—isn’t he cute?

I’m pretty happy with the mascot work, in no small part because he is wearing one of our actual jerseys. Here are my tee-ballers from last season:

But, he doesn’t have a name! A mascot that cute really should be called something! What is your best Grasshopper name?

We don't move on from grief

I haven’t lost a spouse, but a dad when I was 12 and been touched by grief very recently. She’s hit the mark pretty well.

Next season

I just realized that if all five of my baseball girls play next season, we would be spread across four teams. 12U, 10U, 8U, and two in 6U.

That would be a lot of practices and games to juggle! Yikes.

Dad’s Birthday

Today, Dad would have been 76 years old, which is an odd thing to think about. Still young enough that, all in all, it would be normal for him to be living still, but old enough that I can’t imagine him actually being that age.

Here is me with him at probably the last time I wasn’t a pain in his neck at 2 months old.

For the record…

Almost a month exactly is how long I can be on the road with six kids before I hit the wall.
