That's a wrap...

Last week, the first night of the end of season was called due to rain. I guess it was a fitting way to begin the last tournament. Everything else had been delayed for rain!

Kevin's team won their first game. It wasn't really any surprise though. They'd won EVERY other game this season, too.

Blake's team, however, was the #4 seed with a losing record facing the #1 team in the league. (I love this photo of B in his catcher's gear...)

Blake hit is 3rd HOME RUN this season!!! Finally, I had my camera handy and thought to use it!It was a little crazy watching his team congratulate him at the plate. I barely caught him in the frame (far left)!Kevin's team played the Cubs. He had fun. (The kid LOVES to steal bases!) They won both of their games by so many points that they were called early due to the run rule.

He went home with not one, but two trophies. One for regular season champs based on their record and another for the tournament champs. This kid loves his hardware!

Blake's team took second place to the #3 team. It was his last Little League game at the park that's become our second home over the past six years. Next year, he'll be able to play Pony League, but they play at at a different location. It was nice to see all of my guys go hoem with a trophy (or two).

Now we need to prepare for Blake's Little League District tournament for all-stars this weekend. Our league has never advanced to state and we are hoping this year's group of boys can change that. I think they can!

Yea, Blake! Three home runs is amazing :)

Congrats to Kevin, too. He needs his own trophy case!
