This makes me cry

Bennett's school was asked to sing the National Anthem at Busch stadium for the Cardinal game. We are big Cardinal fans and it was so fun to go and listen to my big boy belt his heart out. He was a little bit nervous about the whole thing, but loved every minute. We all rode the bus over and then the kids separated from the parents. We went to the top of the seating and watched. It was SO sweet and cute. You can hear my mom in the background laughing, singing and crying. That is funnier than the actual singing probably, but it was so fun. My parents and Marc and Michelle were able to go too.
The best part of the whole night to Bennett was the baseball, cotton candy, hot dog and hot cocoa grandma and grandpa bought for him.
I must say it was so sweet. What a big boy he is. I cannot believe he is already old enough to even know the National Anthem much less sing it in the major leagues! Way to go Bennett!
PS...I took a video of the kids singing with my camera and for some reason I cannot get it to download to blogger. Can anyone help?

I wish I could help you out. Sorry. That is so amazing. He will probably always remember that.

Wow big bennett! That is amazing! I can't wait to see the video!
BTW - I have troubles with blogger video. I like Google Video and you can get the html code after uploading your vid and slip it into your post.

That is so great!! I really think I should pawn the idea of being closer to the Cardinals if we move closer to you all!! That is surely on the "PRO's" list. Maybe it will motivate him to finish school extra fast. But I guess you can only go so fast!! One day we will be closer. (Can you tell I am getting super home sick again.)
