Baseball Boys

We are moving right along in baseball season!  Jake's team is really coming along, they looked great at last night's game....nearly everyone getting hits and making it onto bases and some great plays in the field!  Jake caught a ball and got a kid out for the 3rd out of that inning, then later in the game (while playing shortstop) he threw the ball to first, resulting in 2 more outs....needless to say, he was on top of the world last night! :-) 

Playing shortstop

I didn't get any video last night, but here is one from a game last week (they got him out at first, but it was a good hit anyway!)

Liam's team is progressing as well as you can expect a bunch of 3 and 4 year olds to do :)  To be honest, he doesn't love it.  By doesn't love it, I mean he begs every week to not go.  Once we're there, he's fine and seems to enjoy it, but it's a battle to get out of the house every week.  I don't know if it's that he really dislikes it or if he's just that much of a homebody that he doesn't want to leave.  A few weeks ago, he tried to bribe me into letting him skip the game by saying we could go to Target together instead.  He really knows how to work the system with me!! 

"This medal is great and all, but I'd really like to be at Target right now."

Video of Liam:

With the longer days, the boys sometimes head outside with Brian after dinner for some batting practice (why yes, that is an old door that they use as a ball stop):

Liam's turn!


Have a great weekend!

I understood not one word of the first paragraph. I'm impressed, Emmy! ;)
