Opening Day Ceremonies!

This morning, well, was TOTAL CHAOS! Our first experience with Little League Baseball, and 1400 kids..............but the most important thing? Nash had fun!
Guess who the sponsor is of Nash's 5 yr old T ball team? Daddy's company!

His team is the MudCats and he and the other 5 year old boys loved seeing Rowdie from the Indianapolis Indians, the music and the fly over by the (insert who the heck they were here) air fighters!

Nash also got to meet another little boy with Tri21, Andrew, who is playing on another team within the same school system. Andrew is a year older than Nash and while we know the parents, we hadn't met Andrew before, nor had Nash met him...
and how cute is this?

Beth said...

Beyond cute, indeed!

Wanted to say hello. I've popped by here a couple of times to read about Nash (found you on the Tiptoe through the Tulips webring) and enjoy reading your blog and am a fellow Hoosier and mom to a son with T21.

Way to go! Reed is also a big Sports Dad and already has made space for Parker's trophies....hee,hee

Nash is such a handsome guy. You are very blessed.

Go MudCats!!!! Nash, perhaps you'll be disappointing daddy afterall. Baseball might be your calling --- are you ready to bench football? LOL!

Nicole said...
