Opening Day for Little League!

Yesterday was awesome... and emotional! Opening Ceremonies started with all the other division Angels Team on a knee making a tunnel for the Challenger Team. Tears were flowing as we entered the stadium! After the key note speaker Rex Hudler inspired us all, the first Challenger Game began! This smile says it all...

Here is Jenelle and her buddy taking the ball to 1st base!
After the game was over, Rex Hudler (the red haired guy on one knee) interviewed some of the Challenger Players. Rex's 13 year old daughter sang the national anthem, then his 10 year old son (a Challenger team player) decided to sign like his sister!
Then each kid wanted their opportunity to use the microphone!
After Jenelle's game, we went to Jack's first game where he played catcher. He did well until he took one on the toe -ouch!
And here is Jack in full swing. He thinks his swing looks like Vlad Guerrero.
DH and Jack, who was not very smiley at the time.

I love it all. We've just had one baseball practice, so nothing till probably after Easter. I love the kids' pictures. Your girl looks like she enjoyed that! That is so incredible. and, the frowny pic of Jack cracked me up. Why do kids do that when we pull out the camera? :)
