Our Weekend

This past weekend was a pretty typical weekend for us, but we did have some highlights for sure! One highlight was that the Titans scored more points in a single game than they ever have before. Casey was able to catch a long pass for a 1st down. (there is not too much passing that goes on in 10 year old football, mostly just running the ball) They played against one of Casey's good friends from his baseball team. They were good sports and posed for a picture at the end!

Another highlight was that Cody's baseball team won their very first FIRST place trophy in a championship game at their tournament this weekend! Last year, they won many second place trophies, and a first place in consolation. This time they were the champions of the Mr. October Tournament in the 8 year old division. Go Kings!

One of the best parts of the weekend was the grand finale...The Light the Night walk at Market Street to raise $ for blood cancer research. The participants held lit balloons of one of three colors. The gold balloons were for loved ones who lost their battle, the white ones were for the survivors and the red ones for the supporters. It was a powerful experience to see the lives touched by this horrible disease, and to be a small part of raising money to help find the cure. The event was also designed to be fun for the kids and I know James had a wonderful time running and playing with cousins and friends who were there in his honor. At the end of the 2 mile walk, James released some of his team members' balloons. What a special way to end the weekend.
