The End of High School Baseball

Friday night brought the end of R1's high school baseball season. We lost in game 2 of the area playoffs. 

Our boys played their hearts out and left it all on the field, however the umpires didn't help us any either. It was a tough series.

The boys walked off the field with their heads held high and straight into the dugout where they proceeded with a 40 minute hug/cry fest with one another. Then one by one they began to walk out to us parents who waiting just outside the dugout door.  When the boys were all out of the dugout more hugging and crying ensued this time with us parents. 

When R1 walked out of the dugout with red swollen eyes and tear stained cheeks I just grabbed into a big hug and he kept saying over and over, this is so much harder than what I thought. He never thought it would hit him this hard. R1 has played baseball since he was four and with most of these guys for 14 years. His season as a baseball player has come to an end.

One of R1's teammates put out a tweet on Twitter later that evening to all of the seniors.
And in true R1 fashion, he came back with a pun.

R1, your dad and I have loved watching you play baseball over the years. Your love for the game and growth as a player has been a joy to witness. This last season has truly been bittersweet.

Senior Prom 2018

Oh y'all these senior year moments are coming fast and furious! It seems this school year has just flown by. 

R1 had his last home baseball game Friday night and we are headed to the playoffs this week and then on Saturday he had Senior Prom. 

I have to admit, he looked quite handsome in his all black tuxedo. His date was beautiful too. 
He and his date had a great time. 

So hard to believe that in 14 days he will be graduating. Time please slow down just a little bit.
