I did detect a note of frustration from Kevin, however, this past weekend as we asked him to stand under the centuries old Linden tree, said to be the oldest tree on campus and situated next to the President's Mansion, for yet another picture. "You know," he said turning to me, "I think you've taken more pictures of me on this campus than you ever took of me playing all of those years of baseball while I was growing up." Admittedly, that may be true. But, how can you compare the beauty of a baseball field to the beauty of an historic arboretum-like college campus...I ask you?! And, by the way, we have plenty of pictures of Kevin playing baseball along with every other sport that came along since he, after all, is our pride and joy.
I also happen to know a student on campus at UMW who will be happy to stand and pose for a picture along with you and your own college-bound child. And, by the way, I do have a picture (or two) from last year of that same student playing baseball here, as a matter of fact. Hmmmmmm, it looks like a nicely clipped lawn and pretty good pitcher's mound, too. Don't you think?!?
