My boys… their first year in T-ball

April 24, 2010

My boys are in their first year of T-ball. the first few practices were pure torture. Because while they had watched their big brother and sister play ball, they didn’t really get it yet and the first few practices they were bored, and didn’t want to stay on the field, wanted to play in the dirt ect. The first game was also torture. They loved hitting the ball but didn’t want to play the ” boring” outfield. I had to bribe them with hotdogs. The second game, Patrick had finally gotten it and played the outfield fantastically! I see alot of his older brother in his baseball playing. Wyatt however at the second game chose to wander around the outfield with the ball glove on his head as a hat, and his hand behind his back. But just like the coach said… he stayed out for the whole game and that in itself for my newly turned 4 year old was a feat in itself.! Today my Patrick fielded the ball and got it to first base before the runner got there, I was SO excited. He has even realized that baseball is NOT a full contact sport and he can’t tackle his team mates when they have the ball.Wyatt is even playing better. These are the boys after they hit the ball and are running to first base. I took them with my Canon Rebel and use picnik to edit them and crop them and make them a bit brighter.


Baseball Season …….

April 24, 2010

Softball RULES!

We are into Jadyn’s 4th year of baseball with Charles Town/Ranson Little¬† League. She started with T-ball on the boys teams, and then was moved up to machine pitch where she kicked some tail! her coach told us then that she had the potential to be a highschool standout. Last year we moved her to the girls softball league through the same little league and she did awesome. This year she is on the same team. {although I am not digging the uniforms this year. Last year they had AWESOME tank top jersey’s. this year in order to cut costs they did tshirts… not as nice but hey- who am I to complain.} she had a rough start to the season,¬† had surgery 10 days before opening day and had a HARD recovery. however, opening day she pulled it out, SLAMMED the ball, played awesome and won the game ball! which is huge for any game but on opening day its FANTASTIC! so here is my girl and I right before opening day ceremonies. I didn’t do anything to this pic and it was taken on my Canon Rebel, which I SO need to learn the different settings on.

First Thunderstorm of the Season

First Thunderstorm of the Season

So last week we had our first Thunderstorm of the Spring/Summer season. I personally will admit to you that I am terrified of thunderstorms. Growing up whenever we would have Tornado Watches I would be convinced that no matter what we would get a Tornado. CONVINCED. Even now, I have a rubbermaid container in the basement behind the water heater in the alcove where there is enough space for everyone should we get a tornado- full of supplies, flashlights, weather radio, candles, can opener, canned food, water ect. The hubster says I am paranoid, I say I am prepared. As much as they terrify me, they also fascinate me. I can remember vividly the time when Jadyn was a year old we watched a Tornado form a mere 500 feet from us and I was both scared and awestruck at the same time. I like to watch the clouds form and I love the smell of thunderstorms and rain.

ummmm ok……
