Baseball season is over

WOW, what a difference a year makes. Last year if you remember, we were so glad to see baseball season end. We had a horrible coach and team, we had theiving parents and it was ugly. This year we met the most wonderful families, coaches and Team mom Tammie. The coaches taught Conner so much about the game and encouraged him as a person. The Team mom sent email reminders every practice and game. She made sure there was help and snacks each game. We even had a swim party last week just because. I made friends with a wonderful lady Charlene, who became the unofficial snack mom of the team.

In the beginning of the season our team didn't win a whole lot, but the kids had fun each game. Conner was a magnet for getting hurt this year. He got hit by a pitch or something almost every game. I am so proud of my son though, he also grew as a person this year. He pulled the coach aside two weeks ago and told him to let other kids catch. He told the coach he knew that some younger boys wanted to catch and to give them a chance. He told me he knew what that felt like to be told "no" and he didn't want to be the cause of that.

Last night as we were leaving, I was almost crying again. Last year it was pain and this year it was sadness I won't see some of the people again. It was truly a wonderful experience to take part in. Thank you to everyone who made this season special for our family.
