We are actually wrapping up Collier's first ever baseball season this week.  We have loved the life of baseball.  It has been so much fun and Collier is LOVING it.  He wakes up every day asking if it is either game or practice day!  He is doing great and when he isn't on the field he is asking us to play with him in the back yard.  Justin really wanted to wait another year to let him play in a real league but I am so glad that we let him play because he is having so much fun.  His little team has had some wins and some losses...but the boys have fun and certainly played hard.  Plus they are learning and getting the hang of it a little more with each passing week!

 He has gotten the opportunity to play 'pitcher' twice..they have to get strapped in and ready.  Since it is Tee-Ball there is clearly nothing to 'pitch' but since it is the position closest to the batter it usually gets the most balls.  He thought it was soo cool!

 Hey Batter Batter Batter....
Score!  He is always so excited to get around the bases and score!  He has had a few times he has had to run hard to beat the 'pitcher' to score and has done well.  Other times he seems timid to run into the other player.  All part of the learning.  But I love his excitement after scoring!
 He normally plays in center field
 playing First Base
 playing 3rd base
 Slide!!! SAFE!

This week is the play off and we play tonight.  One loss elimination, so I am hopeful that we'll get a win to be able to play again!  We had a wonderful, supportive and fun group of dad's to coach this sweet team.  I am thankful for their time and efforts and most of all, I am glad that Collier has loved his first ever season of baseball (and his first ever organized team sport).  Looking forward to many more to come!!

Meanwhile, Kenley has also gotten into ball-park life.  Several of the families have younger kids, which means that I am not the only Mom running and chasing after my wild child.  We have several other little girls who are so sweet and kind to Kenley and who shares and takes to her very well.  But this is generally how she rolls for Collier's games.

this is one of the so sweet little girls to take Kenley under her wing!
