Next Stop, Czech Republic

My kid is going to the Czech Republic tonight. Back in March, he tried out for the national little league team. He made the first cut, and was invited to a mini camp. He made the cut there, and was one of 20 kids to be selected to the team.

Of those 20, 15 were supposed to be selected to make the travel team. Again, my oldest made the cut. As time went on, he cracked the starting lineup, and now, he is the starting catcher on his team.

Over the past few months, he has attended numerous practices. In addition, he had his own local team to play on, All Star team games, and over the past week, he has spent five hours a day at baseball camp, practicing and working on his game.

And so tonight, he is off. Together with Veev, he will go have the time of his life. For the next week, he is an emmisary of Israel. He has the chance to go out and meet kids from Central Europe, and show them what Israeli kids are really like. He'll stand tall at the singing of HaTikvah, and then play his hardest to try and help his country win as many games as they can in this tournament.

Highlights at eleven.

Hi Heidi - I wrote goodbye posts before. Then I aways came back, so what's the point. I have not been into blogging lately, so I haven't blogged. Veev even changed the name of the blog.
