Comeback time.

After a three month hiatus, I am going to start blogging again. Instead of trying to update you on the last few months, I am just going to start with this week and then post a few pictures every week to fill in the lost time!

So, I am back to blogging and Josh Hamilton is back to Baseball. Did anyone see the home run derby on Monday night? Amazing... here's a shout out to our hometown hero and super slugger...

Josh Hamilton

Josh hit 28 homers in the first round (to give some perspective - the closest runner up in the first round had 8 homers).

I think I have a new favorite baseball player (and he is not on the Orioles!)... here's why:

--- In addition to hitting those 28 homers...Josh is from my hometown. I saw Josh hit a few homers back in high school when he was playing at Athens Drive (my friend Brian was on the same team).
--- After three years away from baseball, he is making a pretty incredible comeback!
--- But most of all... he has a great testimony. My favorite line of his interview Monday night was when he said 'It is amazing to see what God has done in my life and how quickly he has done it.' If you don't know much about his story...you should read about it. Here's a pretty good article...
