the last of the first batch...

all three of my siblings had children within 2 months of each other. this is my oldest brother, clint, with his son, jack.

sweet jack jack lives in birmingham, which is a lot closer than texas! on one such trip to birmingham we got to see one of jack's baseball games...

clint is the coach for his team and missed the "draft" day (they are hardcore in birmingham). he told them that he would take all of the kids that weren't selected. i think they lost their first 8 games or so. they were absolutely the bad news bears team. one of the kids on the team wasn't much taller than the bat he was using. clint was so patient with them and taught them the basics...then they actually started winning games! when we were there we got to see jack's first game in the championship tournament. i've been to a lot of buddy ball games, but this one was the most exciting i've seen in a long time. jack did a great job and had 12 people in the stands cheering for him. they won that game and went on to win the overall championship!!
i know the picture is of him playing soccer, but i don't have one of him in his basball outfit. he totally has the whole hand-eye coordination down...something his aunt emily and aunt nette struggle with. the picture to the left is from this past christmas when uncle thom brought his guitar hero. jack was really good, and decided he wanted to start learning how to play guitar.
next time i'll try to get some video of him playing.
