The High's and Low's of Cricket!

This weekend Mitchell played in two cricket semi-finals. First there was his junior team. They started playing the weekend before last but the match was washed out after 11 overs. Play continued Saturday and Sunday morning. Unfortunately the boys fell in a heap and were all out and that was the end of the 2011/2012 junior season. That was the low of cricket!

Now for the high of cricket. Mitchell plays senior cricket on a Saturday afternoon. The senior semi-finals started this weekend. Mitchell's team batted Saturday and he got his highest score ever of 73 before going out. Play continued yesterday afternoon and Diamond Creek won the match!

Next weekend is the Grand Final. Another weekend of not doing anything but watching cricket! Oh no, wait! Next weekend Austin and Nelson have Little Athletics Championships! Noel and I will have to tag team at each sport.

Needless to say, nothing much else was done this weekend, not even a single stitch!

Edit: I just found out that the Grand Final goes over two weekends! So it's four more days of cricket!

Sometimes stitching takes second place. Good luck with the finals. I used to enjoy watching the kids play sport. Those days are gone now so enjoy it while you can.
