Yankees vs Twins June 24 2009 (8)We had the Yankee’s end of season party the other night and I was given some pics of Colten. I know I have talked about him as a catcher on my blogs before but these were the nights where he was pitching and I was so nervous that I couldn’t take pictures of him.  He really excels in his catching and is really improving his pitching. He was given the “Playmaker” award for always having his head in the game and calling the plays on the field. He made some awesome plays this year. He made several catches as catcher on foul balls, one in which is coach who has coached this team now for 54 year (yes! 54 years) saod in all his coaching he has never seen a play made with such a high foul ball. During the state tournament, he had steam coming from his helmet and they actually pulled him to play outfield which he never got to do with this team. It was really short lived as the 2nd baseman was injured on the next play and he was pulled in to cover.

Yankees vs Twins June 24 2009 (54)He will make as awesome player as he gets older, I am so proud of his dedication and talents. It really helps to have the coaching staff like he did this year. I swear they had a coach for every player, but that is what made all these boys excel this year. I was really proud to see them play in the city and then go onto state. They are an awesome group of players!

I love you Coconut!!

StudI am not sure what the craze is about the shaggy dog look, but I have never been a fan. It is hard watching your kids grow up and having them have a mind of their own. I used to enjoy it so much when I could pick out there clothes and dress them up, even better, have their hair cut the was I liked it. We finally gave into Colten and let him grow his hair out. I have been waiting for the day when I could finally talk him into cutting it all off, never thought it would come.

He had spent Saturday playing two Baseball games and then a day at the Lake. It isn’t very fun having the hair wip around your face in the wind while you are tubing or wake boarding. When we got home I did my usual mom talk, “wouldn’t it be nice to be cool for a changes?” “Are you sure you want to have that long hair playing ball?”. When we started, I actually had to cut his hair of before I could use the clippers. He was not really happy that it took us so long.Shaggy

The next morning, he showed up at baseball practice and the coach and kids started to yell at him, “This is the Yankee’s practice, get off the field”. The kids started yelling “You’re not on our team”. He finally had to pull his hat off and yell “This is Colten!” The coach got a good laugh at it.  Colten is now enjoying the maintenance  free hair cut.
