“I wonder if I could hang upside down from the bar?”
“Maybe if I go around to the other side and try to bend my leg into an extremely unnatural position…?”
“If you can’t laugh at yourself…”
Paige is starting to grow genuinely concerned. With good reason.
“There’s nothing that the ‘tongue-of-great-concentration’ can’t fix. Right?”
“Errr…laughter is the best medicine…?”
The best part of this picture is the fact that Paige can’t stop watching and Liam doesn’t think/know/realize there’s anything to watch. And also that face/body position of mine.
Quitters never win.
And winners never quit.
But even winners show their hineys to the world from time to time.
This is about the point at which I realized I had no exit strategy…
Even Liam wondered how I was going to get out of this one…
Childhood is so much fun. Even when you’re 33. Maybe *especially* when you’re 33.
These were all taken surrounding Liam’s first Spring Season game on March 10th.
Getting ready to head out:
Gran was on hand to watch Liam and wrangle Paige — which is the only reason I was able to take pictures at all.
Getting suited up:
Are these two related, or what?
Paige was *not* in the mood to sit still (or do any one thing for more than 2 consecutive seconds…):
She almost looks like she’s in one of those superimposed pictures of a person in front of a backdrop.
Showing off his new jersey. Go Team Holland!
Looking out for Baby Sister:
I think this is the most enthusiasm I’ve seen out of him all season:
Too bad the game hadn’t started yet…
Huddling up with Coach Matt:
Lining up (and getting a little last minute instruction…most notably which direction to run):
Aaaaaaannnnnnnd cue Liam completely shutting down during the game.
This is the point at which Liam ended up going back to the car in the middle of the game with Gran and Paige. This is Paige expressing her feelings about that turn of events:
Things have gotten progressively better with every game this season (in terms of Liam not giving up, that is). We have told Liam many, many times that all we expect of him is that he give it his best and have a good attitude. Some days are better than others. I’m not sure we’ll be doing this again come Fall…
