An Embarrassing Game

Well for my team it was a pretty good game, but for the Angels, an embarrassing game. My team were the visitors so we bat first. We scored 10 runs at the first at bats by walks. I was hit in the foot. Finally after 3 outs, we take the field and get "3 up 3 down" and bat again. This time we didn't score and I hit a high foul ball near 3rd base and got out :(. The final score of the game was 16 - 7 keeping the Cubs in the playoffs. The best play/plays was me stretching for the ball at first base (don't know how I can stretch my leg as far as a I can), and I stole home sliding into the safe call.

-The funny news :)
Well the umpire was hit in the worst spot you don't want to be hit in by a baseball. :O. He started puking; felt pretty bad for him.

Then right after that he gets nailed in the hand.
He sure did get beat up that night.

Yesterday was finally the last day of school! I am so glad I get to stay home and do what I want. The only downfall of the last day was that it was raining like crazy.

My math final I easily got an "A",
My American History class final 96%, district final did horrible,
My computers final I got a 98%,
English final; I think I did pretty bad,
and my science finals I got an "A".

I'm now a freshman!!, but in Mesa Public Schools I still go to a junior high (how dumb is that).

A Depressing Game, Cubs vs. Athlectics

Well, the score was 5 - 6 and of course we lose. The game was supposed to be over at 9:30, but the stupid umpire said the game should keep going since the score was so close. (we were up by one; the Athletics must have been slipping 100s in his pocket) bases loaded with 2 outs, they hit a line drive to short and short stop misses it (ahh!!) one point scores, left field throws it in and catcher (who is really bad) misses the ball on a really easy throw which let the winning run score. I was mad.

On the bright side, I had a great hit to left field which hit the fence and I was able to get to 3rd base. And just before i got to bat, our best hitter hit a ground rule double, which is when the ball is really close to the fence at it bounces over. Our pitcher did great again.

I may even join a club team if there is opening on this certain team.

Orchestra Concert

Here I believe i was playing songs from "West Side Story".
I look a little deformed here, but I'm almost positive that this was
just before the concert started
This is the entire orchestra if you can't tell
I'm staring out my gorgeous violin?

On Tuesday at 7:00 I had my last orchestra concert of the year and even possibly my last concert at Smith Jr. High. We did quite well, except my stand partner was playing on a different count. My favorite song was West Side Story during the part "Cool", where the drums start playing. That part is really "cool".

**My family has decided not to move out to Queen Creek, instead stay in Mesa.

My Dad's 3rd interview

Today my Dad is going for his third interview. I'm so excited for him and I really hopes he gets this job. He is also going to have to take a really long test. GOOD LUCK TO HIM!!

My parents also looked at a house in Queen Creek that can shelter us for a while until my Dad's job pays him a little more. If we move there, there is an area that we can fly in and call it Hooper Airport until homes are built in it.

Cubs vs. Red Sox

Wow! That was an awesome game!! The score was 14 - 5, leaving the Cubs with an impressive victory. This game was probably one of the best games my team has ever played. I was 3 for 3 in hits; 2 singles and a double. My double was an excellent line drive over shortstop's head. My team made no errors, and the pitcher did great (I didn't start this game because coach wanted to save me for early Saturday's game). Surprisingly everyone on my team got a hit (which is very rare for some players :]). So far we have won both of our games this week and are looking for our 3rd big "W" on Saturday (I'll probably start this game).

Cubs vs. Indians

We won another game 12 - 5. I didn't do my best; I got picked off at first base because I'm an idiot who didn't pay attention to the pitcher, i struck out, and that all i really did that was bad. But, i got a nice solid hit right over to second and the second baseman jumped and caught it. I was so frustrated. Overall, my team did quite well, we went through the batting order many times, and didn't make many errors. I am a little excited to be starting the game off pitching on Thursday, but nervous at the same time :).

??The move??

Well as most of you know my Dad doesn't really have a job at the moment, so we are going to need to move out of the house. It possible that we will move to Queen Creek. To me Queen Creek feels like the right place to go and am kind of excited to have a fresh start somewhere new.

*My dad is going to have is second interview on Friday!! Good luck to him.
