Banks Tournament Champions

May 19th, 2010 Posted in Fun Photos - Sports, Joyful Moments, Sports | no comment »

Joe’s Sherwood Scorpions baseball team won first place this weekend at the Banks Junior National Tournament.  The boys played very well and deserved the top prize.

Joe made the difficult decision to only play a portion of the championship game so that he could make it back to Newberg for an important soccer tryout. He played an amazing 4 innings that helped lead the team to victory. Hits, slides home, awesome bunts, RBI’s, double-plays…Joe did it all this weekend.  Then, he proceeded to get to Newberg and hustle his way onto the U12 Classic Team. It was a competitive tryout this year, and Joe showed he has what it takes.

Great weekend, Joe! I’m very proud of you.

For Christmas my mom gifts a calendar to each person in my family. Last year, Brian received a calendar of vintage University of Oregon Game Day art. Very cool.

January rolled around and the calendar was done.  We knew we had to use the prints somehow. Brian’s mad skills led to this awesome window-pane collage in our basement. I love my handy husband!

I Still Love My Ducks

Oh, Ducks! What happened? That was far from the Ducks’ best effort, but, hey, we still gotta celebrate making it to the Rose Bowl. Maybe we all need to shed a quick tear and watch the video one more time ’cause I really do still “Love My Ducks.

At least the game gave me an excuse to postpone the New Year’s diet for a day. The wings, fondue and tacos probably set me back pretty good!

Basketball Season Begins

Joe and Ben kicked off  their league basketball season today despite the threat of freezing rain and snow…can we fire those meteorologists already?!  Anyways, both boys gave a good show for their first games. Unfortunately, we came out on the losing side at the end. Oh well, we’ll get ’em next week 🙂

And, with a new sport season comes a new photo op. I’ll be taking the team photos as usual…I’ll have to say I’m getting pretty good at the allusive basketball photo. Take a look at what I got from  Joe’s game

Sam Pitches His First Game

Sam got his shot to be pitcher last night. Still can’t believe they are having 1st graders pitch! He did great. I posted a whole new crop of pictures on my photo website. You just gotta love the intense expressions on their faces while pitching.  Go take a look 🙂

Soccer Results

May 19th, 2009 Posted in Sports | no comment »

The Classic Soccer tryouts and debates on where to play are finally over! And it’s all good news!!  Ben will be playing for Southside’s Lions and Joe will be playing for Newberg’s U11 Boys team.  They are both very, very excited about their teams.  They like the kids and they like the coaches. Nice going, boys 🙂

Now begins the intense juggling act of soccer practices and baseball. I really need a Star Trek transporter.  Last night both Ben and Joe had games at Hopkins at the same time, so I was literally running back and forth to catch the action.
