    My difficult child played his first year of "real" Little League this year. He hasn't played since T-Ball (he was bored!), but jumped right in to the 11/12 year old group this year. He had a rough start because he wasn't as experienced or as old as many on his team, but several months later this is the conclusion of the season: NASA AREA LITTLE LEAGUE CITY CHAMPS 2007

    difficult child wanted to quit he was sooo embarrassed as the season began, but I'm not one for giving up and I pushed him along. NOW he's a member of a team that worked really hard together (there is no SUPER star, they just worked hard as a team.) and won the City Championship. This is something that very likely will not ever happen again in his lifetime. I was soooooo proud and now he is, too!

    I so seldom get a chance to brag..... :thumbsup:
