Raging Roosters Season Comes to an End...


Yet another baseball season has come to an end. Our Raging Roosters had their last game last Thursday, and OH - MY - GOSH it was so hot! Dave got it into his head that we needed to have a pizza party after the game, so we bought six pizzas and had them delivered to the fields. We handed out certificates, and had pizza, Capri Suns, and cupcakes...all the things kids love. :)

The season went really well. Each time we left the fields, Dave & I would remark to each other how we thought the kids were really improving. Even the little girls who could barely hit the ball at the beginning of the season were hitting bombs during the last game! It made us so proud. Cooper even got to hit the last two games. The other coaches didn't mind, and he is so persistent when it comes to baseball, we just had to let him. He hit it really far, and ran around the bases and even slid into home plate. He was beaming the whole rest of the night.

Dave started pitching to Hunter over-handed, and I think he hits way better like that. He hit his farthest hits the last two games, and it was fun watching him run all the way around the bases, that huge grin on his face. I love to see my kids excelling in a sport they truly love. I guess it's just in their blood. Oh, and I have to say, we had the best looking uniforms of all the teams. We go for the bold colors, you know...gotta be noticed.


We had an extra certificate, so we made one for Cooper. It's hanging on his bulletin board in his room.
Hunter looking lonely in the outfield...
Orange shirts with navy blue script...a shirt I wear proudly, but Dave says he'll probably never wear again - haha!
