The Good News and the Bad News

Saturday started on a high note. Several high notes really. My little guy, whose games I have been dragging myself to because it's been torture watching them lose almost all season...pitched a PERFECT GAME!!! and not just any game, it was for his tournament CHAMPIONSHIP!! (to put this in perspective, their tournament was only with 4 teams, but his team got every batter out 1, 2, 3 for 4 innings and scored 10 runs to end the game!) Those little guys have improved a ton from where they started. Just awesome!


The bad news is my older son's team did not do so well. It was a long, long day.
But that night the kids had a great time in the pool. Losses and errors forgotten. We're home now and looking forward to the rest of the summer =)

Wow, it must've been quite a day. Hey, you could write a book: "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..." or has that been done already :)

Congratulations to your youngest son! It sounds like your oldest took it pretty well. It helps to have a pool at the hotel.

How hard is that? Being excited for one and disappointed for the other? I don't envy you that.
Glad they had fun though. That is what its supposed to be about.
We would like the Boy to start football next year to see if he likes it. I'll have to get myself some 'how not to be a psycho sports parent' books.

Great pics! Glad your one son's team did well. Hopefully your other son's team will perk up soon.
