The past four days were a whirlwind of activity. Cookouts, fireworks and carnivals. Steve turned 41 on July 3rd and Max turned 14 on July 2nd. Max's baseball team played in the Bay Baseball Tournament for the 6th year in a row. Thursday and Friday's games were both rained out. Saturday they were able to get in and WIN 2 games. They advanced to the semi final on Sunday morning and won again. Max had never even won a single tournament game and now was headed for the championship game at 3:00. They faced the Middleburg Mudcats the returning champions with an undefeated regular season record. This was the team that stomped them 15-2 last month. The boys played their hearts out but despite their efforts lost 5-4. One run made the difference. Max was crushed despite knowing how well they played. It is so hard to see a child go through it.
Here are some happy layouts I made using the new Making Memories Giggle Kids paper available only at Archiver's. I made all four pages from 4 pieces of pattern paper, one pack of embellishments and some cardstock. Pretty thrifty I think!
