End of the Season

by | Jun 15, 2009 | Baseball | 3 comments

Last week the boys played (and won!) their last game of the season and then had their pizza party on Friday night. Even though it has been a busy few months, we were all sad to see it come to an end.

It really was a GREAT season. The coaches were all wonderful! (Including daddy! 😉 ) The boys were excited to have been chosen by their old coach, from two years back (they didn’t play last year, due to our trip to Nebraska). He put together (they had to try out) a great group of boys this year. But then, with a name like St. Louis Cardinals, how could they not be a great team?!?

The boys will really miss their friends from the team. Especially the other two coach’s sons.

The main coach’s wife, who was also our “Team Mom” told me that her son asked her if he could spend the night at his best friend’s home. She, not aware that he had a “best friend” asked who that was and he replied, “(Captain) and (Rascal), OF COURSE!” I thought that was sweet! Now, we don’t really do sleepovers, but we will have to have him over to play sometime soon. =)

I LOVE the trophies! The Team Mom let us vote for our favorite, and I was excited to see that it ended up being the one I had chosen. Aren’t they great?!

Next year the boys will be able to move up to “Player Pitch” Little League. (This year the coaches pitched to the boys.) They are growing up so fast! It won’t be long till Snuggles will be playing too!

He can’t wait!!!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
