We Are The Champions!

We have always instilled in Devin that winning is not everything in sports. In fact, for the last two years Devin has played on, for the most part, average baseball teams. He has definitely experienced his fair share of losing. You can imagine our surprise and joy for Devin to be on a Fall baseball team that went 7 - 1 and ended up winning the Championship.
For the moment, we have allowed Devin to enjoy the feeling that comes along with working hard and winning, knowing that next season it could be his team that is on the losing end of the Championship game. Another life lesson, victory is always short lived.

Above picture is Devin receiving his First Place Trophy from his Head Coach. Not enough good things can be said about Coach Jeff. Outside of my husband, Coach Jeff has to be one of the most positive upbeat coaches Devin has ever been coached by. Coaching can make all the difference in the world when it comes to a child's enjoyment of a sport. Thanks Coach Jeff for making Devin's experience this Fall a great one!!
