Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack

Last night was Paxton's first game of the season. He was so excited to be playing again, and got two huge hits - one a pop fly out to center field, and the other a foul ball that may or may not have hit one of the other parent's cars. We were all disappointed that Mike had to miss the game, as he was stuck in a meeting that ran late.

Paxton has a new coach this season, one who is much tougher than his first, and so highly invested in helping the boys really learn how to play the game. He's admitted that the practices have been harder (lots more running this time!) but he is enjoying it more than ever. His dreams of becoming a video-game designer have, for the time-being at least, been cleanly replaced by those of becoming a professional ball player. This is the face of a boy who loves baseball.

That is so great about Paxton. He looks like a natural in his uniform :)
