Last night our boys team won the tournament for their coach pitch league this fall.  We had so much fun.  There is nothing like watching your child perform.  Whether it is in a sport or a performance of some type, it is so much fun.

It was a great night for baseball all around (yeah Boston!).

I read a blog (see here for full article) this week about how parents can best encourage their children in sports.  They surveyed college athletes and asked them what their parents said that made you feel great.  Their response was…

I love watching you play.

I said this so many times to my boys last night.  I don’t know what they will remember about their childhood when they grow up.  I don’t know if they will ever know how much work it is to have your children play an organized sport.  But I hope and pray they will remember how much we enjoyed watching them play.  And how proud we always are of them.
