Hayden's baseball team played in the city league's championship game last night. I was so proud of those boys! They played a great game, and although they didn't pull off a win, they gave a strong finish to a great season. Their team took second place. Not too shabby!!
Miss Ems was pretty impressed with the spinning ball in the trophy, and big brother was very generous about sharing it with her. I'm sure she felt like it was her trophy for showing up at the ballpark all these many weeks. :-)
Baseball is a wonderful illustration of how much I admire this boy. He is hard working and determined. He is quick with a kind word and eager to encourage. He loves being dedicated to a group. I think God used all these things this season to grow him into a better athlete, and an appreciated team mate. Way to go, number 11. We're proud of you!
