Andy signed up to play 7 and 8 year old baseball this year, big boy baseball. Let me tell you, the learning curve for mama has been steep. When I got the practice schedule that had us at the ball field 5 days a week, I thought, "this must be the wrong one, this must be for the teenagers." Oh, I have a lot to learn.
Today was the "Jamboree." It took me the entire week to get a handle on what that means, and I'm still not completely sure. But we loaded up the kids, chairs, coolers and camera and went to the ball field.
Now, correct me if I'm wrong Tallassee folks, but I believe that the games they played today were just for practice. Although, Andy assures me they counted. There was a scoreboard and the Braves won them both, so you can bet they counted to Andy!
All that matters to this mama is that it was a lot of fun. Andy played, we cheered, the girls played in the dirt. A good time was had by all.

|Victory dance. Got it covered.|
|Jan and Charlie came to watch the game, and to get the baby's nose.|
|And if there's one thing that 7 years of motherhood has taught me, it's that small people will put up with almost anything (including 6 hours at the ball field) if there are good snacks provided.|
|and lots of drinks to stay cool.|
