A group of boys that were voted on my coaches and peers to play in an elite tournament at the end of the regular baseball season.
It was an honor.
That we had to turn down.
We plan our seasonal end-of-the-year-beginning-of-summer trip during that time and well, if you don't show up, of course you can't play.
As boys got older and skill levels more competitive, last year he did not make a team. So away we went on vacation.
This year, though he struggled the first half of the season he ended up doing really well in the next level of little league, "the Majors!"
Combining his new confidence, skills, and overall pleasant temperment, he made the 11 year old all-star team this year!
So excited, so proud, Hubby was even asked to help coach this group of great kids.
Our travel plans are working around the schedule, perfect right?
Well, now that Hub works out of town, our days go like this:
6:30am-Hub leaves for work
5:45pm-Hub comes home from work
6pm-Hub and Son head to practice
9pm-Hub and Son come home
For two weeks, even Saturdays.
Crazy long days.
And, I bet my husband is feeling them too. (smirk)
Our first game is this weekend, so hopefully this crazy hard working practice pays off.
And, maybe we'll have a home-cooked family dinner together soon.
