My Little Rookie

It was another nice day, weather wise. Max and I had fun hanging out on our blanket in the field as we watched the festivities for Lakeland Little League's closing ceremonies. Tyler has been floating on a cloud and is so proud of his cool little trophy. He insists we need a new home addition...a special room just to hold his trophies. Hee hee!

None of the photos John and I took came out great. I'll have to try and get a photo of Tyler with his trophy later.

We finally got the team photo and Tyler's official first season Little League photo. Honestly, I wasn't totally happy. It's a cute photo of Ty, but the rookie card was not at ALL how I had hoped. It was just a basic "frame" around the photo on standard photo paper. No stats on the other side.

So I took the basic photo and made my own card! I added logos from the Detroit Tigers (their MLB namesakes). The stat side of the card I based on a rookie card from the 80s. That is the only decade in which I actually followed MLB (I was a Red Sox fan). I have to giggle over the stats. Every kid got to bat twice in every game and Tyler had a hit at every at bat. So he's got a perfect batting average! Where are the pro scouts when you need them? LOL!

That looks fab.

I bet Tyler thinks it's fantastic too.

He looks very professional, and , ok, far too cute.

You are such a techno goddess. I kneel before your excellence.

Tabby has been asked to audition for a part in a program about homeschoolers! I am supposed to make a five minute movie about her by July 12 and I am freaking. I wish you lived closer! Still I guess her basic Tabbyness will come through no matter what a mess her mom makes of her audition tape.

Okay, I've been catching up - much more quickly than I expected; blog more! - and resisted the temptation to comment on the Enterprise (I don't like Archer) finalized adoption (congrats!) and other entries. But I have to say that I love Ty's rookie card. The career highlights are my favorite part.
