Hi! My name is Austin Cade Spears. My family and friends call me Austin. I am eight years old and in the third grade at Montevallo Elementary School in Montevallo, Alabama; I attend advanced and GRC classes. The opportunity was offered for me to attend college in the summer months for three weeks covering seven courses starting the summer after fourth grade school year until I am a senior.

During the summer months, I enjoy playing baseball and swimming. I have played baseball on local teams for five years now. This year will be my sixth season for I made the cut a few weeks ago in early February. I have yet to learn for which team I will be playing. Update: I am to play with the Orioles this year. May it be a good season for us!!

Opening day for our baseball season is April 2nd, 2005. My grandmother, Donnie "Nana" Spears, will be making the first pitch and I will be catching it. There is a big ceremony to honor my Uncle Buck's memory planned on that day with the dedication of the field that I will play on. We lost him in December senselessly, and I miss him tremendously. I think it is wonderful that there will be a dedication of a field in his honor and memory.....he loved baseball and sports. I am proud that the field they chose is the field that I play on for the nine year olds also. Uncle Buck's jersey number nine will be retired and all of us players will have a nine on our sleeves in his memory and honor. I will be most proud on the 2nd to honor my Uncle Buck in this manner. I miss him coming by each day to visit with us. I am having a little bit of a hard time with talking about him some days....but I am thinking of him everyday. I hope to help win the championship this year. Uncle Buck would be soooo proud of Conner, Chloe and me for we are ALL playing ball this year. *smiles proudly* This is Chloe's first year playing ball on a team, you know.

UPDATE 03/06/2005: Wow!! We learned this week that everyone on our teams will be wearing Uncle Buck's retired number nine on their sleeves, but "only" Conner, Chloe and I will be allowed to wear Uncle Buck's retired number nine as "our" jersey number!! What an honor!!

My best friend is Keelon Bunn. He is my neighbor and is a couple of years older than I. We enjoy playing video games, using my bow and arrows, and watching scary movies amongst so many other things we do together.

My family and I attend church at Enon Baptist Church. I particularly like to attend on Wednesday night. They have a very good program which I enjoy.

I enjoy visiting and spending the night with my grandparents (Nana and Pop) most Fridays. They are the best!

I am not bragging, but I am a good son. My parents, grandparents, and great grandparents are very, very proud of me. My little brother Conner thinks I am the coolest and looks up to me tremendously. I will do my utmost best to never let us all down. I AM a Spears, you know. *smiles proudly again*
