Since he's too young to help out as a Challenger buddy, I let him gear up to be umpire for a little bit in last Saturday's game. He did exactly what an umpire should do - stay out of the way. :) He got to call a few kids safe, dusted the plate off a few times and gave out a few fives to the Challengers kids who scored. He's been pretty proud to tell people he's an umpire now.

I hope I'm not doing him a disservice by raising him not only as a Cubs fan but now as someone who wants to be an umpire and thus the target of scorn by thousands of people. Sorry for the future therapy bills little guy.
