Pulling up to the baseball complex in Yorktown. It's early. It's a chilly Fall morning. The excitement is already in the air. Little boys walking around with their oversized bat bags. Warming up on the fields. Parents are sipping on their coffee and standing around in their hoodies and spirit wear. Bella is so excited she can't stand it. Sometimes I forget how much I love this game.
This is the real deal. Our first real tournament for our Cannons. The boys look sharp in their navy blue & gray unis.
We did good. Saturday we went 1-1. Sunday, we won the first game, putting us into the semi-finals. Sadly, we lost the second game. The boys were understandably upset. The good about this age, though, is that it was instantly forgotten about.
I love their gatorade grins and eye black.
Sometimes I forget that these boys are only 7 & 8. They are so amazing to watch.
Pep talk on the mound from the Coach. We were only up by one about to go into the last inning. My nerves were shot, and this was only the first game.
Cam plays a mean third base.
We have such a great group of coaches and Dads. These boys still cry when they strike out. They are so hard on themselves if they miss a play or make a mistake. The expectations are much higher at this level of baseball. But they are still our babies. I wish we could keep this group of boys together forever.
We struggled the second game of Day 1. We were the better team, but we were losing 11-1. The boys didn't know how to feel. They don't lose very often, and never this big. They gave it their best. In the end, we lost 19-12. But we almost had a comeback!
I didn't take many pictures the second day. Both games were nail biters, and my nerves were shot. But I did get some pictures of the siblings having fun during the games.
They were a little mopey after it was all over. But like I said, it didn't take long until they were back to being little boys. And they had moved on.
My name is Kaci. I am a working mom of 3. Wife to Josh. Mom to Jackson, Cameron & Isabella. My life is dinner, homework, baseball, basketball, grocery lists, laundry, wine, video games, and bath time. I started this blog because I am passionate about photography and journaling, and because I wanted a place to write it all down, to rememeber little details so easily forgotten in the mad rush that is the life of a family of 5. Through my photos and words, I endeavor to capture our story.
