Our life seems to revolve around the baseball field - so I'm pleased that tonight we have a night free from baseball games and everything else that seems to take our evenings!
Kent's baseball team finished off their regular season play last Monday and Tuesday. By my count, they ended up 24-1 for the season, but I could be wrong. Regardless, they lost only 1 game and ended up winning their conference.
On Monday evening we had the team over for supper - all 18 players plus the assistant coach and his wife. To say that we had a full house would be an understatement. I didn't count exactly how many burgers and brats we had, but I think it was around 70 pieces of meat. Luckily I jumped in line after most had seconds, but before they went back for thirds, and I was able to get a burger for myself and one for Meredith...we definitely had no meat leftover! I had had nightmares of under cooking the food and giving everyone on the team food poisoning. Their first game of tournament play was last night, so they would have been out of commission for that had they gotten sick! But thankfully everything was prepared as it should have been, so no one got sick. :)
The game last night was at 5 p.m., so they were able to play the full game before the rain came. I guess out of 8 games in IMS' district and the other close district, only 2 games were played. We all got soaked as we waited to see the final 3 outs of the game and then when we ran through the rain to our car, but we didn't mind the rain since we got the win! IMS beat Highland 6 to 1, so IMS will go on to play Thursday night. Here's the website link to see some good pictures and read the write up from the game last night: http://www.iamenno.pvt.k12.ia.us/baseball.htm
As I said at the beginning, baseball is basically our life right now, so I don't have too much to add that doesn't have to do with baseball!
I do have a video clip of Jesse playing. Towards the end he does his coyote howl - isn't he too cute??
