It is Labor Day today, which I guess means that summer is over.
Joe and I went to the National's game with Uncle Bill and James. James is pretty grown up now. He's a good kid.
The game was a lot of fun and very exciting. The National's pitcher, Ramon Ortiz, almost pitched a no-hitter. He came so close. Everyone cheered loudly for him.
They had these huge "presidents" race around the field during a break. It was funny. Teddy Roosevelt won. He isn't in this picture of them walking into the stands.
Jack knows everything to know about the presidents. He has flashcards about the presidents that we bought at the National Archives, I think. He reads back through them a lot.
Albert Pujols is one of the guys' favorite players. He hit a homerun in the ninth inning. He is a big and incredibly strong guy.
