Baseball Senior Night

Last night was senior night at the baseball game. Garrett obviously didn't play but he was still recognized. They saved him for last and let me tell ya: he sure got one heck of a round of applause! The support is never ending!
The proud parents and their senior!
Right after all this happened, the team lined up on the 3rd base line and faced the flag for the national anthem. During the prelude part of the song that announcer said a little spiel about Garrett that brought a few of us to tears including himself. They said "Notice both teams wearing yellow Livestrong arm bands. This is for Burley Bobcats Centerfielder and #5 Garrett Lyons who was diagnosed with cancer 3 weeks ago. He wants to thank all his teamates, coaches, teachers, friends, and family for all the prayers and words of encouragement through his battle with cancer." That was enough to make my eyes well up. Thanks again to everyone who has supported Garrett and our family through all of this! We love and appreciate every single one of you!
