Reds win the Tournament

Noah has played baseball since he was four years old.  He started out very little playing t ball and spent a lot of time picking dandelions in the outfield and seeing how much dirt he could kick up with his cleats.  However, every year we've seen improvements and the past two years he has become quite the little baseball player. 

Travis has volunteered to help coach his team the past two seasons and this year they worked really hard as a team and improved a lot over the season. 

The final game of the tournament was so close.  In the last inning we were down by two runs and we had two outs.  With two runners on base Noah is up to bat.  He strikes twice and had two balls and kept fouling.  Then he managed to hurt his shin and I honestly didn't think he could run.  BUT his very last pitch he hits a good hit toward right field and manages to run into first base.  He hit the other two runners in and our team won the tournament!!!  This was such a big deal for us, and I hope I never forget the memory of his Daddy picking him up on his shoulder and running him off the field.  I did have my camera but I was jumping up and down and yelling so much I didn't get a picture!!!!  It was a great night!

Did I mention we Bleed BLUE

Have I mentioned that we happen to be UK fans in our little neck of the woods?  Umm...yes.  Noah and his dear old Dad got to go to a coach Calipari UK basketball camp today.  This is Noah's group posing with Coach Cal and the NCAA 2012 trophy.
We had this camp planned for quite awhile.  It was Noah's reward for working so hard in Second grade and getting straight a's and perfect attendance.  Travis was just a little pumped too....

Noah had worked alot over the last few months and saved up a little stash of cash.  Which he used today to buy a Natl Champions Basketball and stand that Coach then signed for him.  It's displayed proudly in his room.  With threats to his baby sisters if they even dare to breath on it.  HA!  Travis also came home sporting an autograph on his trusty UK hat.  He was a little starstruck I think...

And because we're all friends here we're going to pretend that I have been faithfully updating my blog...and I didn't miss lots of milestones like...halloween and Christmas 2011...K?  Good...
