One Brief Shinning Moment in the 2017 High School Baseball Season

Well high school baseball has ended for R1. The season is over.  It's actually bittersweet because we lost to my nephews team. My nephew is a senior and this would be the only chance they would be able to play against each other.

Our boys made to the second round of the playoffs only to be eliminated in a best two out of three game series. So now my nephews team moves on to round three.

However, for one brief shinning moment my son and my nephew were on the same field. 

R1 is catching and my nephew is the batter on deck.

I love these boys!

National Honor Society Induction

Hubs and I are extremely proud of this kid. He has worked hard all through high school and it has paid off. 

Congratulations R1 on your NHS induction! Your daddy and I could not be more proud of you.

Highschool Baseball Experience at Minute Maid Park

Our varsity baseball team got to experience a once in a lifetime event on Monday night. They got to play a baseball game at Minute Maid ballpark. 

Those of you who have been reading here for a while know about my deep love of baseball and my even deeper love for the Houston Astros. It is because of this deep love I'm not quite sure who was more excited, me or R1.  I tried really hard to contain my excitement but I'm not all positive I succeeded.


The boys arrived early at Minute Maid and took batting practice in the Astros' cages (let that just sink in here for minute. Our boys got to take batting practice in the Astros batting cages!) and then took a team photo on the field. One of the highlights of the night was were the home team and our boys got to sit in the Astros dugout. (Again let it in sink in our boys got to sit in the Astros dugout! They got to play a high school baseball game on a major league field!)

It was rough night for our boys and we struggled with errors and hitting and we lost because of it.

However, it was an awesome experience and I'm so glad our boys were able to be a part of it. I hope they get the chance to do it again next year. 



The Astros score board. And it had our team and roster listed at one point.

It's that time!

Ahhh, it's that time. Yes, it's baseball season again and all is right with my world. 

Pitchers and catchers have reported for MLB and high school baseball season has begun. 

And as usual, be still my mama heart.
