This is the only time during the season the players come out on the field to take pictures and give autographs. How cool it was that this was the day we came. We got there a bit late for this so we had to push our way through but we were able to meet two players and get pictures. And of course considering what a loyal Tigers fan I am I have no clue who these players are. Please forgive me....
But the experience in itself was so much fun. The kids did great and we were able to have two balls signed. I was so proud of Aleisha who made her way to where a player was autographing and she threw him the two balls. Good job Aleisha!
We headed over to Aunt Aleisha's for the night to enjoy fireworks and go to the Tigers game tomorrow. Aunt Aleisha and the kids greeted us with hugs and excitement. We went for a walk, the kids played, had popsicle's, James set off some fireworks, and then we sat and watched a ton of awesome fireworks going on all around us.
This little guy was on fire today. He is absolutely loving football. Just watching him makes me excited. I'm so proud of his hard work. And I just love seeing him have fun, work hard, and enjoy what he's doing.
For the next two weeks the kids have swim lessons every evening, Monday-Thursday. Adeline was extremely excited about this....Andrew on the other hand was a bit nervous. But...once each hit the water they were both fearless. Last time the kids were in swim lessons we had to stay out of the pool area and watch from above. This year we are at the Muskegon Y and the parents are allowed to sit in and watch.

Addy was in the deep end most of the time and Andrew's class is right in front of where the parents sit. So much of my attention was on Andrew. I was very proud of him and how well he did. The fear of the water was no longer there. The competitive side was back.
