A LONG WEEKEND
This weekend was Drew's first tournament in Select Baseball. I was very concerned about letting him play select baseball, but I know it is an honor to tryout and make the team, how could I tell him no. He played all-stars with this group of boys last year and they seem to be a good little team so far. I do have to say I was totally sad at the fact that I missed him pitching for the first time ever. Everyone said he did so great and that he helped get the team to the championship game. According to Jonathan they were down by a few runs and Drew was called in to pitch and struck the batter out for the 3rd out of the inning. The next inning they scored 3 runs that caught them up and then Drew pitched again allowing only 1 run and struck out the 1st batter, his last out was a crucial play, the batter hit the ball at his feet and Drew dove and caught it for the 3rd out. Okay so that is enough baseball info for a lifetime, I'm about to choke Jonathan while giving me this info...I'm not the most sports minded person.
Onto the Mega Crop Weekend. Well, all I can say is....wow that is a lot of work. I really had a good time. We started the week prior getting the place set up and I think everything went very good. Everyone that I talked to said they were extremely pleased with the whole weekend. I saw some amazing layouts and met many new people...and yes, so many that I probably won't remember names...ya'll know me with names. I want to thank all 29 people who took my Travel Journal Class. I also want to thank Lisa Johnson for team teaching this class with me, I couldn't have done it without her. I didn't bring a camera, so any pictures that I get from others I'll post.
Last but not least, many of you have been so wonderful and gracious listening to my families tragedy with my brothers car wreck. I was lucky enough to meet Ms. Beatriz once again and she was such a comfort to me this weekend. We even had time and prayed together. She is such a wonderful person. Many of you have been very concerned with my brothers recovery and each day things will get better. He is alive, and that is the most important thing of all. I am sure he may not feel that way right now, but as time goes I hope he realizes it was not his time to go and God has more in store for him and he will do great things. I did talk to my parents, which are being as strong as they can, today. He is getting stronger each day, so strong that he ripped all of the straps off. Many of you may not know, but last week he had a 12 hour facial reconstruction surgery and the next day the nurses weren't watching him closely and he sat up on the edge of his bed and fell out, onto his face that they had just done the surgery on. Unbelievable!!! He was okay, but I think that took more of a toll on my mom than him. Today he was very mad and frustrated with the whole thing...so I ask that you each pray for him to see what God has done for him and to be thankful that his family is here for him and to be a happy person. I'll keep you all updated as more news comes in.
Be Safe and I had a Great time with you all this weekend!
