Hall of Fame Induction

On September 10, 2010 Patrick received the honor of being inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame at Freed-Hardeman University. Patrick attended F-HU from 1996-1998. He set many records while there--quite a few of which he still holds. Some of these records include: single-season batting average, on-base percentage,and doubles and extra base hits. While at F-HU, Patrick was a two-time all-conference and all-regional selection. In 1998, he was named an NAIA All-American and the Tennessee Small College Player
of the Year.

Patrick was inducted into the Hall of Fame alongside his coach while at F-HU, Chuck Box. It was a very memorable night. Patrick gave a great speech. Some of his teammates during his F-HU career were there to congratulate him. Freed-Hardeman is where Patrick and I met. So this was a special night for me to see him lifted up among his peers that I knew, as well. I was so proud to be there and that Liam was part of such a special night for Patrick.

Irish Fest

Liam and I went to the Irish Fest here in Rockford with Grandma and Aunt Ginny. Aunt Melissa and cousins Noah, Gabriel and Grace met us there. We saw Irish dancing, heard Irish music and even ate some food that was called "Irish". Liam and I rode one little carnival ride similar to the teacups, and I nearly turned green to match the theme of the festival. We had a blast.

Bigger every day

It's hard to believe that summer has come and gone. Fall is rapidly approaching. It's sweatshirt-wearing weather and college football-watching time. GO IRISH!

As the days roll into weeks and months, Liam is getting so big. It seems as though every morning when we wake up, he has grown another inch or two! And he gets cuter by the minute!!!!!! I love every second of his little entertaining personality!
