Big T has his Reese 8 & under ball tourney this weekend and is so far 0-2. He's handling it okay; so dramatic at times. Get this, he was upset that the other team celebrated their victory before shaking hands. Joe promptly reminded him of a few instances where a certain someone would go tackle his goalie after a win, followed by a bunch of, but, but, but Daddy. The scene ended with Tommy having to take a cool down lap around the high school track. He's definitely overtired and an early bedtime will hopefully remedy the attitude. He played well in his games but probably his play of the day was when he was running to 2nd base and beat the ball there however he slid too short and ended up being out. Reminded us of Willie Mays Hayes in Major League. The kid runs so slow, another time on 1st his coach said, "come on Tommy skate to 2nd base." His hockey rep. precedes him. So add on the last hockey games and Tommy is 0-8. Oh well, losing builds character right?
Between games we had an impromptu get together here with a couple of other families on the team. It was fun and the boys got their uniforms dirtier in our field than on the baseball field in a rugged football game. Last night we were at the Andriot's swimming. Poor Kevin was grilling out in the pouring rain when one doozey of a storm dropped in. A very close lightning strike sent a little electricity through Kevin. Kind of crazy. It's true that your kids definitely brighten up your social life. We've met so many wonderful people through hockey, baseball, and of course Babycenter. A quick shout out to my BBC girls, you all know who you are. ;)
And for a little more craziness. We had a leak under our bathroom sink. Joe has it fixed but not only have we lost our freezer goods from the freezer death earlier in the month; now we've lost some toiletry goods from drowning. Oh what next? The place is falling apart.
Here are some pics of the boys in their maroon and gold (and Amber in green)! The future Reese Rockets?!?
