It sounds like you either have a bad connection on the battery cables, or the starter is going bad. Can you tap on the starter with a broom handle with some one trying to start the engine and see if the starter kicks in and turns the engine over?
Will the cable ends move on the battery posts or are they tight enough so they do not move?
Did tapping on the starter get it to turn the engine over?
