Baseball season is here!

It's baseball season again....so, we've been spending much of our time at the ballpark lately!

Colin played only one year of T-Ball, and this year went straight to baseball. What a difference! The players are bigger, the pitching machine is f-a-s-t, and the game is much more intense.  We've been having a great time together as a family, watching him play.

This past weekend, the boys were in a tournament. They lost a hard-fought first game (to the eventual first placed team), but then went on to win their second game on Saturday. Sunday, we won our first two games--which meant a third game to determine the third and fourth place teams!

The boys did well, but the game went into extra innings (shew!) and they were simply becoming exhausted.  We lost a player to injury and ended up losing the game by one run, ending in fourth place.

We are so proud of their accomplishments, attitudes, and effort this weekend!

What cute little ball players you have! We JUST finished up soccer season and I'll be honest, I can't wait to spend a Saturday at home for a change.

Here's to a GREAT season!!!
