Baseball stitching and a Birthday Start

I had a really nice weekend! It’s been months since I’ve been able to go watch my oldest son play baseball. Usually my husband takes him because he’s one of the coaches and only 2 people for each player have been allowed to come. With 4 other kids that just doesn’t work for our family! …
