Baseball Saturday

Joe started his day by getting a base hit.

He's pretty fast and was able to beat the ball to first base.

He ended up scoring a run.

When they took the field, the coach put him in as pitcher. He didn't stay in too long as pitcher because, quite frankly, he stunk up the mound.

I know that sounds harsh, so I guess I'll take that back and just say he couldn't get into a groove as pitcher. He went back to playing first base where he is a bit more comfortable.

He informed me today that you need to be tall to play first base. I think he thinks he's tall just because he's taller than me. Bless his heart, he's excited about being taller than me and wonders if people think we're brother and sister. In my dreams!

Here are a few shots of the players in the dugout. This is our catcher, Clyde.

This is Mark. Mark and Joe have been friends a long time.

Here's Dee. Or is it just D? He gives me hugs which is more than I can say for my son!

Then there's Will. One of the things that I like about Will and the rest of the team, is that they're all eager to help each other out and give pointers on how to be a better player.

I love being in the dugout with the boys because of moments like this. If the game was closer, you wouldn't see this and of course the coaches would never allow it, but we were winning 17-3.

You think this player is smiling now, you should have seen him a couple of weeks back when he hit the game winning run! This page wouldn't be wide enough!

We only have two more games left in the season. The end of the season brings a bit of sadness for me because I always end up falling a little in love with each boy. It's neat to see them come together as a team as the season progresses.

But then there is always next year!

Air Show 2009

Guess what we did yesterday?

We went to the airshow! We were among about 100,000 others who went.

Everyone was amazed at the stunt pilots.

The Blue Angels own Fat Albert got to show off his fat stuff.

I love Fat Albert.

But then it was time for the fighters to do their job.

It really is awesome and exciting. I have been going to see the Blue Angels ever since I arrived in Beaufort. They are so thrilling to watch.

They'll be back in 2011 and if I'm still around, I'll probably be there!


Webster is my neighbor's puppy dog.

He and Buffy like to play together.

He likes to jump on Buffy.

Webster loves me more than anyone else on Earth.

It's true!

He told me this yesterday. If you don't believe me, ask him!

He Pitched!

My baby pitched his first game. I don't know who was most nervous, him or me. You could tell he was nervous because he had a hard time catching the ball.

His first inning wasn't pretty. He balked two or three times and you could tell that his head just wasn't in the game at that point.

But then he started to gain some confidence.

He gave up two runs in the first inning.

At the end of the first inning, he got himself into a rhythm.

He worked three innings and ended up with five strike outs. Not to shabby for his first pitching effort! Oh, they won the game 8-5!
