This? This is what a win looks like. And for two 10-year olds who had a bad baseball season this summer, it was very sweet.
Jack and Charlie's first game was this past Saturday. They came. They played. They won. The boys were in most of the JV game, with Charlie carrying the ball once or twice and Jack doing some serious blocking. I am not kidding. KA-POW.
The kid on the far left has the ball. The two boys in front of him are Charlie (8) and Jack (12), although you really can't see their numbers. I believe the collective thought bubble over their heads is, "Bring it." Either that or "Get outta my way." Regardless, the did their jobs.
And in a rare opportunity to multi-task, here was my view behind the bleachers:
Yes, that's the Snider Mighty Panther Marching Band practicing for their first competition, which was later that night. They won second place -- a good place to be for the first time out. I tried finding Tyler and Kate individually, but only found Kate.
That's her in the center, green shirt. Later I realized I couldn't find Tyler because I was looking for a white t-shirt (which is what I got out of the dryer for him that morning) but failed to realize he'd put on a BLUE shirt over it. Besides,... it's really hard to pick out people when all you see is the backs of their heads and their butts.
Looking forward to this Saturday, with another football game and two marching band competitions. :) I love fall!
