The Ball Game

Tuesday night we headed out to Vinton to watch the eldest nephew play the last baseball game of the season for Lord Botetourt.

Meet Emory. He plays shortstop. He is graduating from high school this year. In the fall he heads to University of South Carolina.

I am very proud.

That's his dad and his brother Chris, who turns 15 on Sunday. Happy Birthday, Chris!

I'm very proud of them, too. Chris will grow up to be the farmer of his generation, from the looks of it.

Despite our cheering, Alleghany beat the socks off of LBHS, and the nephew finished his last game at the high school level. Onward and upward to college!


  1. Congratulations to your nephew! I hope he has a wonderful college experience!

  2. It's wonderful he had so much family support for his last game. I hope he enjoys the University!

  3. Probably a bittersweet moment for him.. Nice you all could watch him play his last game, I'm sure he was beaming inside and out.


  4. Congrats to your nephew, that's awesome! Oh and it is bittersweet, the last high school baseball game...gosh how time flies :(

    Happy Birthday to your other nephew!
