The Greatest Game Ever Played...

Go Dodgers! =)

Zenock finished up his T-Ball season with a bang... As we drove away from the park it was a sad realization that my oldest will never play T-ball again... ever.  It is sad to think that part of his childhood is done.  
Next year he will start pitching machine... it terrifies me.

The boys all played so well.  We won the regular season only losing one game the entire season.  (It's kinda hard to teach your child that winning isn't everything and it is ok to lose when the team never loses...)  They went into the tournament and won their first two games.  Our third game was against the Braves and we thought for sure we would lose.  Both teams are pretty evenly matched.  We lucked out and won them by not more than a few runs.  Saturday we had the championship game and ended up having to play the Braves again.  They had an off game and our boys played extremely well.  Needless to say, we WON the tournament!  So happy for these boys they worked hard and played harder.  
(Those 2.5 hour practices (for six year olds??) payed off.)

Zenock had a great season... He hit a home run (making it onto the records of the park), learned how to slide into a base (he did it a couple of times during the championship game), round first to get a double, and so much more.  He is small, but is starting to get a lot of strength behind his swing.  He is also learning what it means to "RUN!"  He is super fast, but seems to jog the bases, barely getting there in time.  We talked him into really running for it and  finally saw the fire in his eyes when he was running the bases.  I love all that he is learning while having a good time.

Every championship game must start with the Breakfast of Champions. =)

After every game the team would huddle and have a talk with the Coach.  Kamden would always find his way right to the middle and sit down.

It is nice to know T-Ball isn't over for good just yet... we still have many more years. =)
