The Bears Won!
Jackson played on such a great baseball team this year. His season went from the middle of May to the beginning of August. His team actually won the tournament at the Boys and Girls Club Park where we play. Ironically, he was also on the winning team last year (the Cardnials). Jackson was actually not asked back to play for his last year's team the Cardnials. I felt so sad when I never got a call from the coach all May and finally called him and he very nicely told me that Jackson probably couldn't keep up with the Cardnials team this year. I was "crushed" for Jackson but agreed that we didn't want him playing baseball on a competitive team, four nights a week at age six. I figured it was God's way of putting us on the perfect team for Jackson and allowing us to not stress ourselves out with a crazy baseball schedule and a new baby. I emailed several friends and Jackson was able to play with the cutest bunch of boys on the "Bears" team who played two nights a week. He fit right in and proved to be a great hitter. We definitely need to work on catching and running the bases. He was so excited when they won the tournament and then all the boys had a big swim and pizza party afterwards. We can't wait to play for the Bears next year.
