They rocked it alright

and even though they played harder than they ever had this season they lost by one run in the end, 10-9

Check out those downcast faces, I tell ya. Every single one of those boys should be proud of how they played today though, they didn't let up.

Coach gave them the pep talk and kept it positive asking them if they had fun trying. Of course they did.

He's a good one, that's for sure. Keeps it in perspective for them.

It was hard for some of'em to smile even though they did earn a medal....

but the coach was able to get'em to laugh in the end reminding them of some of their amazing feats out there on the diamond

Two weeks off now and then the rest of the season begins....
...with another tournament, the final end of the year tournament, that is.
And even though Mama bit off off all of her nails, shed some tears, ate way to many peanuts and forgot to apply her sunscreen I think I can do it all over again.... because it was worth it:)

Holy cow....

These boys are two games away from glory

I don't think even they could have predicted this

At 10 am this morning they will play and if they win this game they play for the championship
This one has made some amazing plays in the last few days. No one can believe how fast this kid is.

Remember Roadrunner and his swirly dust for feet? Yeah, it's like that.

And this guy has the power. When he gets a hit, it's waaaay out there

The two of them have played 5 games in the last week with one more this morning, possibly two.

I don't know how they do it, but all I know is that I have a filthy house, no laundry done and a 23 month old who is utterly amazing because she's attended every game without a single complaint and will also holler and clap for every player...even the ones not on our team.
I asked one of them if they were nervous this morning and his response was, "why should I be?" Of course those of you who are close know which kid that was

And even though their team has been undefeated so far, technically that's not true......
because last Monday during the Mother-Son game we moms kicked their butts.

They won't acknowledge it though.

I'm so proud of these guys and have loved every minute watching them play
This will probably be the last year they can play on the same team so we're all really enjoyin' this
especially these two

God is good

Mmm, mmmm.....good?

Here we see dad returning from a 4 week trip to Australia

And here we see the Lil' Lady remembering who he was

Here we see a little souvenir he brought back and insisted we all try

And here we see their reaction

Here we see Lil' Lady inspecting the Vegemite on a cracker and handing it back

But here we see her changing her mind and giving it a taste

Here we see her ditching the cracker and digging right in

And here we see big brother shocked and disgusted by her obvious love for concentrated yeast extract.

Really, how do people eat this stuff?

6:45 am and ice cream sundaes?

Why it must be the last day of school!

 and even though the Lil' Lady didn't have school today, there was no denying this girl an ice cream sundae breakfast

 Sigh.....we made it through another year:)
Summer, here we come!
