Summer Time Means Sports Time

Well, the kids are out of school and to keep busy they are playing on the local ball team. Unfortunately, there weren't enough boys that are Jake's age to make up a full baseball team, so they took the three boys and combined them with the girls to make a co-ed softball team. Works for me because now I only have one practice and game schedule to keep up with instead of two. And, of course it's Carley's first time playing so having Bubba there to coach her along is a big help to her...and me! When our team is playing the field, Carley would rather play in the dugout. At this point she's only interested when it's her turn to bat. Naturally, at their first game she did the typical bat then run the wrong way. She ran straight to third base. Then, as the coach was yelling at her "Other Way", she ran diagonally from third straight to first base...almost took out the pitcher on her way through! It was cute and gave everybody a good laugh! Jakob is the catcher and he's really enjoying that. He loves being in a position that is constant play and not having to wait for the ball to come to him. I have been given the job of taking individual and team pictures for the softball team. We are all excited and all in all, it's going good.

You go guys:) I had to laugh about Carley running the wrong way! I remember when Justin played soccer and they were so funny at that age. I know that you will do an excellent job with the pictures. Your pictures just keep getting better and better! Miss you guys!
