As luck would have it both my young grandson, George, age 5, and Kevin, age 6, both
had very special events on Saturday.
On Monday, I shared with you the wonderful time we had at George's preschool
Today, I am sharing Kevin's All Star game on Sunday. Yes! Sunday. They won on
Saturday, so Grampa and I were able to cheer him on on Sunday morning.
Even though they lost that game and were then eliminated, it was their very first
All Star games and a learning experience.
This is Kevin's first time up to bat on Sunday.
Don't you wonder what he is thinking?
Just a few of the times Kevin was up to bat in Sunday's game.
Here comes Kevin, running to home plate......
Steps away from home plate.
Yes! He did score the run. However, as he crossed the plate, the umpire stepped directly
in front of my view.
Coach Mike (aka as Dad to Kevin, Jacob and Dylan) talks to the team
after a loss Sunday which eliminated them from further competition.
They played three games before they were eliminated.
My grandson, Jacob is standing by the tree.
He helps the coaches with the team when his travel team is not practicing.
All the coaches and Fossil Park 6 year old All Stars 2012
Congratulations on being picked for the team and playing your hearts out!
Kevin, Coach Mike, (dad) and Jacob.
I am blessed because both my SIL's are loving, hands on dads. Both are coaches, to BOTH
their children's teams. All four of my grands play ball.
Dylan, who is Mike's youngest son is only 3, but he will be slugging the bat before long, too.
My daughter's are blessed to have married great hubby's and dads.
I could not have picked better dads for my grands.
My hubby and I love being with family.
We also love our "special times together", just the two of us.
Hubby and I were feeling very proud and happy this weekend,
being able to enjoy the boys events with them.
So hubby and I did, something we do every so often, stop at Cracker Barrel,
order Apple dumpling dessert with ice cream and two spoons!
The two spoons is the magic.
Oh, yes, the smiles from everyone around us, especially our waitress.
It really takes so little to be happy.
I believe that gratitude is the key to keeping the door of your heart open to all
the beautiful possibilities in life
on a meager retirement budget like ours.
I start my day by Praising Him for ALL things in my life, even the hard stuff.
I end my day with Praise for the everything He has given me that day.
I just thought of a post I will do next week, another Cracker Barrel saga, of
our Cracker Barrel dishes that we stopped at almost every CB off of I-75 in KY, TN, GA and FL
on the way home from NC a few years ago.
All the stops were to find the missing pieces of the dishes we both loved!
You will see that while we don't have much money anymore,
we have a ton of fun and so many laughs, along with fantastic memories!
then this Friday
Please join me for Quiet Inspirations
you will love the beautiful photo this week I have picked just for you!
From my heart to yours, may your day be blessed.
