Has it really been 2 weeks since I've updated my blog? Sheesh . . . Life has been so busy around here. The boys are busy little bees and I've been all over the place trying to keep up with them! I must mention that I have taken on a position on the little league board and that has added to the craziness going on around here. But we are all good . . . exicted because baseball season has officially begun for Nicholas and Noah :0)
Let me back up a bit. This past Tuesday evening was cap night for our little league. I will quickly add that I was in charge of making this event happen . . . It's where we invite the entire league of players (over 200 boys and girls) to an event where we announce what team each player is on. Each player walks up to the stage and shakes their coaches hand and receives their baseball cap, much like how the NFL draft is set up. You can, surely, imagine our excitement for both our boys. But being that this was Noah's first year in little league . . . well it was just super-duper exciting! Noah's team was the first to be announced and when they finally announced his name he was so cute walking up to the stage! What melted my heart was when all of Nicholas' baseball buddies, some of the parents, and other friends we have made cheered for him as he walked up on the stage to receive his cap. Such a happy moment. And it was equally as fun watching Nicholas with all of his baseball buddies . . .all such great kids, enjoy, what is like, their senior year in this league. So there you have it; we have a tball player on the Diamond Jaxx and a majors player on the Washington Nationals.
Yesterday we got our first taste of what it'll be like for us this season. Noah had baseball practice at 10am until about 1145 and Nicholas had baseball practice at an entirely different field at 1215. So you can imagine that yesterday we were running around from one field to another with a cooler in the back of our van so we wouldn't starve along the way :0) Although it was crazy busy, I love it! I love it because my boys are happy and when I see them out running around I feel so completely blessed. My boys are healthy and happy and that's all I could ever ask for.
Here's to a good and busy baseball season!
Pictures/video clips to come . . . I promise.
