Nelson had a game tonight. It was really good even though we did lose by 1 point. It was SO close!! He got hit by the ball twice while at bat and was so tough. Nelson's dream is to be a major league pitcher. Tonight for the first time, he got to pitch during a game. I was SO excited and nervous for him. And bless his heart, he was SO nervous, too! He only got to pitch to 2 or 3 players and walked them all but hey... that's a step towards his goal and I am SO proud! He does really well during practice so I know he'll do better during future games. He is so driven and works so hard!
My parents (dad and step-dad, lol) drove in to watch so that was cool too. My dad, aka Papaw, sent Henry to the concession stand with a $5 bill to buy a drink for himself. He came back with no change....and the drink just cost a buck. Where did the other $4 go? To a pretty little girl saving money for cheer camp. Yup. That's my Henry. Girl crazy and generous... with other people's money! Ha!
