Now What?

 Drew's favorite position.

 Cheering for Owen (his cousin Ellis)

Last Game Day

Baseball ended Saturday and I kind of don't know what to do with myself.
It has consumed our lives pretty much this whole 2nd semester of school
and I'm actually going to miss it (well for Owen anyway).

Owen's team (who did pretty decent all season) got eliminated from play-offs immediately
(lost their first 2 games in the double elimination tournament).
It was a bummer.
But Owen loved the season and learned so much.
He started out knowing literally nothing, and ended up being pretty consistent.
He said he wants to play forever and get better and better.
I love that he found something that he loves and is excited about.
I'm going to miss his cute little self in that uniform.

Drew was excited to start playing, but got over it quick.
He basically stuck it out cause we made him and he wanted a trophy.
At the end of the season party, his coach gave way thoughtful comments and advice to each player.
To Drew, he complimented his great smile (which he really does have)
and advised him to work on his throwing, catching, and wearing his hat right.
Ha ha.
Drew said no more sports for him (2 trophies is enough).
He just wants to start Tiger Cub Scouts ASAP.
Hoping his mind changes on that one over the summer.

Post Edit
Owen's league just had their closing ceremonies on Sat, June 2.
Here's Owen showing off his medal.
 And did I mention his coach told him he was the fastest one on the team?
He's so speedy!

All these pictures are adorable and yes Drew has a great smile. I want him in Tiger Cub Scouts!! You should put him in break dancing classes, that'd be cool.

I can so relate. I feel like baseball is dictating our lives right now. But, worth it, to see how much he loves it. All the kids want to be catcher, why, I do not know. Great pics, of course. And you well, you are one beautiful preggo mamam, so keep the pictures coming. So, did you have a mini this-is-how-you-use-my-camera session with your husband? Because, my husband can't seem to take a good picture to save his life. He thinks it's fun to snap off a whole bunch, but they're never good.

Mama...should've proofread before hitting submit. I suppose "mamam" is extra beautiful-cute.
