So another season of baseball is under way.
This season Pierce is playing for the A's, that's him in the red backpack.
And of course Hope is doing what she does best...
Hanging out with her buddies.
These two together are a mess!
But probably the biggest mess of all of us was me on Saturday.
I stepped away to check on Hope for a few minutes and when I walked back I saw Pierce standing on the pitchers mound.
I looked around like, WHAT THE WHAT?
And then I virtually turned into Madea.
Pierce has never pitched.
He's practiced once.
But there he was, about to pitch.
Bases loaded, Pierce gets up to bat, and whap, it went flying. At first I thought maybe a triple, but they just kept going and going. I was jumping up and down screaming, and Paul was yelling, and well it happened! A GRAND SLAM! Pierce was beside his self with excitement! All the boys were jumping up and down, and of course you know I was jumping up and down. It was just so exciting!
After all that excitement we decided a little ice cream was in order.
A hit like that is something I think most little boys dream of, so I must say I put a very happy little boy to bed tonight.
Let's go A's!
