Swimming Away From Baseball For A Short Time


In Baseball, You Don't Know Nothing!

Amazing game last night! Paul's team was losing 0 to 2, but came back to tie the game. Then scored 2 more runs (one of which was Paul's RBI) to take the lead. The opposing team scored 2 more to tie the game AGAIN! The other team scored 2 more and then won the game. Very sad night for the SV boys. The all-star season was way too short, considering the boy's hard work and dedication. After a few minutes of real tears, the boys recovered and we met at a local restaurant to celebrate the fun that we had. Bring on travel ball!

SV Wins, SV Wins!


The 10 year old Scotts Valley all-star team beat Gilroy 11 to 4! Beautiful! Paul had a wonderful line drive down the first base line! We are hoping to see you at the next game which is tomorrow at 5:30 in Watsonville. Seeds are still on us!

It Ain't Over Till It's Over




Paul had his first all-star game Friday night. They lost...in a very big way. The score was 15 to 1. The lost put his team into the loser's bracket and he played again Saturday morning. They won! The score was 8 to 4! They play again Tuesday at 5:30 p.m.. Paul had a beautiful bunt and a beautiful fly to left field which was unfortunately caught. From my seat in the bleachers, it was about 10 feet from going over the fence. Just a mom's perspective! Hope to see you at the next game!

Only 2 Months of Summer Left!

Where oh where did June go??? June was a busy month for us. Nicolas turned three and enjoyed a baseball themed birthday party (what other theme would we choose??). A few of his friends joined us for lunch, cupcakes and of course, a jumpy house.

I couldn't pass up this cute shot of Emilie with a mouth full of cupcake!

In addition to school ending, it was also the end of our little league season. This picture is of Emilie and her teammate Bronson enjoying really "blue" cupcakes. Emilie and Bronson became friends playing on the Lookouts together. Emilie followed Bronson in the lineup and they could always be found being silly on the bench waiting for their "ups".

Anticipating an all-star call for Paul, we took a quick vacation to Cayucos and stayed at the Erickson's vacation home. We brought the dog and everyone had a great time. The weather was perfect and it was fun just sitting on the beach watching the kids play in the sand!

Oh happy day...Paul was drafted to the Scotts Valley Little League 10 year old all-star team. He has been practicing almost everyday for the last 3 weeks and his first game is July 6. Check out the ladder for upcoming games. We would love for you to join us at a baseball game. Sunflower seeds are on the Erickson's.

We have a Picasso in the house.

And a couple Marines.
