My weekly update

Well....sort of. I guess I have only been updating once a week so I'll call this a weekly update. First of all Happy 4th of July to everyone! Jim, Alex and I headed to the beach for the fireworks and it was my first time ever going to the Jones Beach Spectacular, we had a great time and even though we had to wait an hour until we were able to get out of the parking lot afterward it was well worth it to me.

Our baseball team finished off the season in first place and each of the boys will be getting a trophy at awards night on the 24th. Jim picked Alex as one of his All stars so he will be playing in that game on the 18th, as well. Sadly our season ended with an upset loss to the 4th place team but we didn't have our star pitcher so that hurt us big time. I think the Klondike bars I brought out to the field made the boys feel better, though.

As usual Jim went out and bought medals for each of the boys and we got a group shot with everyone. Robert (who helped Jim coach this year) is holding our MVP who received the "Golden Glove" award from Jim. Don't know who Jim will get to coach with him next year since a lot of the boys turn 13 in the spring so they have to move up to the junior division for 13-15 year olds whereas Alex gets to play one more year in the midgets with an August birthday. Robert even asked the guys who run the league if he can manage a Juniors team next year so he will move up with coach Tom whose son, Matty, will move up. Jim will get a whole new crop of young ones to replace all his older next season might be a rough one but we'll see what happens.
