I heart faces-photojournalism

Let me begin by saying I despise silly bands.  I swore I would never buy them for my children even when they begged me endlessly for them.  Then a stroke of genius hit me.  I thought I would make them a deal that they certainly couldn't come through on.  That way I was still a  totally awesome Mom without having to actually buy them the circulation ender bands.  I told my seven year old Blake if he hit a home run that night then I would buy all three of my kids silly bands.  DEAL!  They were all so excited.  Keep in mind, the furthest my son had ever hit the ball was enough to produce a double.  We were in the quarterfinals of the championship bracket and we were playing a really good team.  I thought I was totally covered.  Wrong.  The score was tied and it was Blake's last turn to bat.  He is a lefty and he NAILED that ball to right field.  This ball flew like it had grew wings and just kept going.  He rounded first, then second, then third...I couldn't even believe it!  There was my seven year old slugger crossing home plate...a HOME RUN!  This is one of my favorite photos.  EVER.  I don't know how I managed to even get it I was shaking and screaming with excitement.  He had won the game with his home run and earned silly bands for him and his siblings.  He later told me as he was rounding third the only think he was thinking was, "Silly bands, here I come!"  I learned my lesson.  Set goals really high for my children and they will probably surprise me!  Oh and never ever ever underestimate the power of a silly band.  For more entires head on over to I heart faces!
