Baseball season almost over

The Little League season among the American community in England always seems to end just as the weather gets nice.

Beginning in March, we trudge out at least twice a week to a Royal Air Force base in High Wycombe, which is also the home of a U.S. Navy contingent. We spend hours out in the cold, wind and (often) rain. And I love it. Well, mostly. Then suddenly it's over. We won't get that much fresh air again until vacation in Ireland, in August.

Here are some more photos of Aidan's last regular game. There will be an end-of-season picnic next weekend, when it is typically hot and sunny for the first time all year.
