Trey is on a team with a lot of really talented kids. You can tell he still has a lot to learn, but he is learning so much. We had practices all through April. Our 6 week season has started this week. The boys are playing for the city league and it has been a lot of fun so far. My twins are on the same team. The coach underhand pitches to them. They are doing their best, sometimes they hit it. Sometimes it’s a giant whiff and I try not to laugh because I know how pissed they are walking back to the dugout. I have to stand around both fields so I can see all of my boys play. I try to cheer them when they come up to bat so they know I’m watching. I keep forgetting to take photos at the games.
After the game we get to spend their tickets at the concession stand. I think it’s cool they still do that. It’s a reward for trying. Right now, all of the players get a turn to play. It doesn’t matter who is good and who is still learning. They all get a chance. I like that about this league. We already did team photos so I’m waiting for my big buttons of all of my boys so I can pin them on my shirt for every game. My dad never came to any of my sporting events, I’m already breaking that cycle with my own kids. It feels good.
I have my daughters in a dance class. They go 2 times a week with Brenda. Brenda loves getting them in their dance outfits and telling me all about it when they get home. The dance class is the same nights as baseball so I’m going to have to wait until Drew comes out to see them play so he can take the boys and I can get over to dance class. The 1st week of June is the big dance recital and then the girls are done. They show me the new moves they have learned, and they practice together. It’s very cute.
Things are still quiet and great. The weather is finally turning so I will be able to get a lot more gardening done. We have planned out everything we want for this years fruits and veggies. It’s time to drag out my tiller and start digging. I love this time of year.
I hope everyone is having a great early Spring. Get outside and enjoy the sunshine. Weather changes are awesome when we have all been couped up in the house for months. Love you guys!
