We have gotten crazy busy in the last couple of weeks, which is a good thing to help pass the time while we wait for first approval. Isaac's baseball team has practiced 3 times a week all winter. It got kinda rocky for them for awhile. The facility they were using caught on fire and burned down. They lost most all of the baseball equipment including a brand new batting cage! It was so disappointing and they had to scramble to find a new facility to practice in. Thankfully they did and were up and running just a few weeks later. Their team name is Smokin' Aces because they wanted everyone to know that a fire wouldn't keep them down! After 3 weeks of rain outs in the Spring league the games finally started last week and this past weekend we were in Branson for a tournament. The boys played great! They won the Championship and went undefeated all weekend! It was good to see their hard work all winter paid off.
There's nothing like watching your child succeed along with all his friends! After they received their trophies and we took a million pictures we all went to celebrate with dinner and ice cream. The boys ate outside and us old folks stayed inside. I didn't think I could be anymore proud of our boys that day until Jason hit me on the shoulder to look outside, and this is what we saw.....
the boys had their heads bowed in prayer. Thanking God for the good baseball they had played and for their food. I scrambled as quickly as I could to grab my camera and get a picture before they finished. I stood inside the restaurant fighting tears and said my own prayer of thanks.
As a side note the boys found out that USSSA has ranked them as a AAA team!!!!!
We are so ready for Lauren to come home so she can spend the summer watching her big brother play baseball! We already have a Smokin' Aces shirt hanging in her closet and now she has some bling to wear with it! Aunt Kayla had this bow custom made!! Don't you just love it!!!!
