The Big Pay-off
Carter had a huge game Monday night. He came ready to play. We were concerned because the game did not even start until 8:00. So to help get him ready, Damon gave him sips of Dr. Pepper periodically for the night. According to Carter, that helped him. He was 2 for 2 with a double, scored a run and had a RBI. However, the big play was to end the game when Carter caught a pop up to the pitcher's circle. The whole stands erupted because it is so rare for a 5/6 year old to catch a ball like that. Little does everyone know we do that continually in our house and have been for the last 2 years! It all paid off. Tyler made it to the game along with Papa Whittle, Grandad Willis, Damon and myself. Gran stayed home with Laura Beth since it was so late.
