I am not so sure why I am so excited to be having a long weekend, after all, it's my hubby's weekend to WORK but I am still super excited!!
Last night, our 9 year old had his first game for his All-Star baseball team. They are playing in Wapakoneta, Ohio which is about 30 minutes from home. Their game was at 6:30 so we had plenty of time to get there after school but I was so bummed that my husband had to work and had to miss it. Not to mention hauling 4 kiddos to the ballpark alone is no easy task!!!! Our team is mostly 8 and 9 year olds and we played an older, 10 year old team. We hung with them most of the game but fell behind them by like 6 or 7 runs by the last inning. We were disappointed but out of nowhere in the bottom of the last inning, with 2 outs and a batter will a full count, our boys rallied and we ended up WINNING!!! I absolutely LOVED seeing our boys so excited and happy. They were yelling and encouraging one another saying "We can do it" and it was just so fun watching them!!!! This is the 3rd year that they have been on this team together and it is ALWAYS a blast to watch them play! We are playing in this league and the boys will have games every Friday evening and then we are playing in 3-4 tournaments over the Summer too. We love their coaches and all of the parents too. We line the baseball fields with tents and coolers and we just have fun together. That is what baseball is all about to me! We just have FUN! Sometimes we win. Sometimes we lose. But we always have fun!
Awwww. My little guy is getting so big! The bats used to look huge compared to him but now he's 9 and he is just getting so big!!!!
Hope you all have a wonderful looooooooooong weekend too! Hubby is actually off work Monday so we will get to have a cookout with my parents and my sisters and their families too. Have fun and be safe!
