Our church in Larimore, N.D., bought tickets for its youth to go to last night’s Fargo-Moorhead Red Hawks game so Brian and helped chaperone. Along with Brendan and Thomas, we took two other kids and an adult friend of ours so our Venture van was full for the trip to Fargo.
It was a sold-out crowd at the game which the Red Hawks eventually won 7-6. The boys had fun trying to catch errant game balls and one of their friends came home with one. They all play Little League so they enjoyed watching how the bigger guys play ball. They also had fun eating ballpark food and sugary drinks.
We left the game, which was a lengthy one, after the bottom of the sixth inning. It was already 9:45 p.m. when we departed so we didn’t get home until midnight. I had to work today and the boys had a Little League game so we didn’t want to roll in to the farm any later. I’m not as young as I used to be so the short night is making for a tired day. It was worth, it though, to spend an All-American night with our boys.
