PROUD PARENT MOMENT.....
Even though I thoroughly enjoyed watching Mady graduate from JOY Preschool this Spring and watching Dax get his "Kindergarten Diploma" from Mrs. Jech (Just like I did when I was 6), some proud parent moments far exceed others and last night----was one of them!!!
AS most of you know that read my blog, this is Daxon's first year of Baseball! He is on the same team as Brooke's son, Gage. They play for the Skiatook FIREBALLS! They finished the Season 14-1. This week has been their league tournament- a big deal! We won the first night, then lost the second night- sad :(
Then last night we had to win both games to stay in the tournament. We won the first game and played the Skiatook Braves the second game for a playoff position for 1st, 2nd or 3rd. The game was awesome!!! Daxon stopped all the balls that came to him and he hit good!
At the bottom of the last inning the Braves were ahead by 4 points so we needed to score 5 runs to win! There was one out.....bases were loaded.....Gage, Brooke's son, HITS A GRAND SLAM!!! The game is tied. Then Braydon hits a homerun and the SKIATOOK FIREBALLS WIN AND OFF TO PLAYOFFS WE GO!!! YEAH!!!
DAxon was so proud that they won!!! Brooke and I were screaming and near tears! It was such a proud moment! All the hard work, hot practices, late night games, money and dedication- finally paying off!!! What a great first year of Baseball for Dax- he loves it and wants to play this Fall and next Spring- I am so proud of him and his team!!!
SO tonight we play at 6:00, if we win, we play for first or second!!! We are the only Skiatook team left in the league- what an accomplishment!
