The Youngest Brother

There are many advantages and disadvantages to being the youngest of 3 boys. There are many things that could be considered both. One of which is that you seem to grow up a whole lot faster than the others. Cade has been huge since birth. He has always been so much bigger than other kids his age that everyone thinks he's older anyway. Cade has grown up with a baseball glove in his hand. He started playing t-ball on Braden's team when he had just turned 3 years old (might as well, he would have pitched a fit if you hadn't let him). Honestly, he was better than most of the 5 and 6 year olds on the team. This trend has continued. He now weighs more than Braden and is only an inch or two shorter. He plays on a 9 year old baseball team even though he just turned 8. There are a couple of reasons for that, but the main reason is that he is just a stud ;) Richard coaches both Cade's 9 year old team and Braden's 10 year old team. They are both named the Rays and have the same uniform. Last night, we were missing a few players because of vacations. We only had 8, so we needed another kid. Cade was the guy! He was so awesome. He got 2 really good hits and ended up pitching the last inning! He struck out 2 batters!! He was so proud of himself, he definitely had a little strut in his walk. We are so proud of him to. He is definitely a 8 year old, but he sure doesn't play ball like one!!

Braden's team was so great to Cade. Of course, they all know him very well. He practices with Braden's team all the time. The whole time Cade was pitching, Braden was playing short-stop and encouraging him. I think Braden was proud of him too.

Oh yeah, by the way, when he finished this game, he had to run to the other field to play in his own game. He filled in as catcher in that game and threw a runner out at third!! Way to go, Cade!!!
