We have had a week full of baseball. Taylor played in a tournament last week-end where they played 7 games. They won some and lost some not to much to talk about there. He either pitched or played short stop for every game. Taylor has been pitching and playing 3rd base since he was 9 years old through out little league, travel ball, and middle school but now the high school coach has now decided that he will be the starting short stop. This is taking a little getting use to for Taylor but he is doing a great job. This picture is from the game they had last night.
Chandler played in the Jones County Invitational Tournament this week-end. We started out with the 8:00 game Friday night winning 23-3 in 5 innings. We drove the hour back home only to return for the 10:00 game Saturday morning. We started the day in the rain on a field that was in horrible condition but won in spite of it all by 10 runs in 5 innings.
That win allowed us a two hour break before our next game so we headed to Jocks and Jills for lunch.
You can see the boys were giving Dalton some advice on how to play baseball. For those of you that don't follow little league baseball our league Warner Robins Little League won the Little League World Series last year and Dalton hit the walk off home run. I don't think he needs any advice on how to play. Dalton is a great ball player and super sweet kid. So after lunch it was back to baseball where we set up camp and spent the next 10 hours.
Chandler played three more games and won each game by 10 runs in 5 innings. Then at
9:30 pm after 12 hours of baseball it was finally time for the championship games. There were 12 teams in the tournament but in the end in the championship game it was Warner Robins Red v/s Warner Robins Blue. ( I guess that says alot for our league when out of 12 teams our two
all-star teams are in the championship. ) Well you can just about guess the final score....... 10 runs after 5 innings 18-8. The boys were excited to win another tournament.
It is great to be part of a league when at the end of the game everyone can join together for a prayer and walk away friends.

So that sums up our week-end of baseball.
On Monday night we DID NOT have any games or practices so I did something crazy... I cooked yes an entire meal I almost forgot how it has been so long. While I was cooking Chandler came in from swimming and said "mom what are we having for supper?" when I told him he very innocently said " mom the last time you cooked I was doing homework" . School got out for the summer on May 30th so that tells you how long it has been. Baseball is finally winding down and I must admit I can't wait. I am ready for a little break. We are headed to the beach for a week on Saturday. I can not wait. We are going with about 6 other families who all have children also so it should be alot of fun. I will try and update again before we leave.
Talk to you soon.
