Today was Samuel's last baseball game of the season. His team made it to the semi-finals (much better than any of the parents ever expected!). They ended up being a pretty good little team. We only lost by one, so we felt good about losing - - unlike some earlier games where we lost by 15 or 20 points! Samuel has learned so much more about the game and really seems to play with passion. We're already looking forward to next year!
Now . . . we just have to wait for football season to start. That's always been his favorite - we'll see if he still likes it as much as he has learned to like baseball. He also really wants to play soccer. We made him choose last year, and I've always said that I didn't want my kids to do more than one sport at a time. Several people have tried to talk me into letting him do both. We'll see.
