Coach Uncle Brian Tackitt had Trenton and Andrew throw out the first pitch. It will be one of my most amazing memories that I will carry with me during this life. It is a good thing I wore my sunglasses because behind my glasses was two eyes full of tears. They were tears of joy and tears of sorrow.
I was so ecstatic when they both walked out on the field, especially for Trenton! However, it was very humbling knowing that this might be the closest they ever get to playing sports. They have much bigger obstacles in their life. I am very blessed that their Uncle Brian wanted them to be a part of the autism game! Thanks Uncle Brian!

In the afternoon, it was time for the walk! Of course, Trenton just wanted to wander away. Again, not one minute of the walk was relaxing and fun. In fact, Trenton and I did not even get to particpate in the actual walk around the park for autism. Trenton was having a meltdown. I watched the walk from a distance and left immediately after. Its a sad day when you can't even walk for autism because of your child.
Emily and I before the walk! She is one of Mommy's special friends.
