Mad Max

Here's Max in all of his glory. Monday night's game was cold and he didn't have a jacket so he sat in the bat bag for awhile to keep warm.

And just like that...

... the season is over. We lost tonight, and played a really hard fought game. The boys should be so proud of themselves, but it was a tough way to end the season. This is a great group of boys and they have all come so far this season. We're going to miss going to the ballpark.

Lucas isn't playing fall ball or soccer - we're going to do the tkd tournament circuit and potentially prepare for junior nationals next year. He is going to play winter basketball so hopefully we'll see some of the kids around then.

Western Conference Champs

The Lugnuts won their game last night, 10-7! They are the Western Conference champs, which as Eric so gracefully reminded everyone, didn't mean much if they followed the Lakers example. They play tonight at 7:30 pm.

In my excitement to get other pictures posted, I forgot to put my memory card back in my camera the night before. So I charged my camera battery but forgot the memory card, thus I could not take any pictures! I will do better next time!

Monday night baseball

The Lugnuts played again Monday night. They won 9-5. Lucas hit a triple that scored 3 runs, but pitching was the key in this game. There are two outstanding pitchers on his team, Nathan and Sam, and they were the difference. The guys play in the semifinal game Wednesday night at 7:30. If they win Wednesday night, they play for the championship Thursday at 7:30 pm. If they lose Wednesday night, they play the consolation game Thursday at 5:30 pm. The kids didn't know they beat the #1 seed on Monday and they were really jacked up when they heard that!


Last weekend was jam packed. Friday night we took Lucas to his first concert, Jack Johnson, at Verizon Wireless Deer Creek Music Center with the Nools and Nate and Kelly. Storms threatened all night but it turned out to be a perfect night for a concert. Jack donated all of his proceeds from the show to the Indiana flood victims!

Saturday morning Lucas had his first black belt credit test. It was ridiculously difficult, especially for not having too much sleep. He had a great partner, and they did great.

Saturday evening was the first game of his baseball tournament. They won! He scored 3 runs on a double and the team was outstanding. Their next game is scheduled for Monday at 7:30 pm.
