Sunday Afternoons

We've all been enjoying Sunday afternoon T- Ball.

Devin likes having the opportunity to learn and grow and be with the other players. I have seen Devin hit the ball, catch, and throw the ball (what an arm!). I've also seen Devin write his initials in the sand at short stop, stand on the bench in the dugout while waiting for his turn, and sometimes trot, sometimes run the bases. Erick is enjoying his role as an Assistant Coach. I've seen Erick struggle to keep the attention of 5 4/5 year olds (I think he better appreciates MY job now- ha!), give players the encouragement that they need to "stick with it" and just enjoy himself while he helps the kids.I love watching it all.

There are only 2 practices left and I am sure that Devin will be asking for more when its done. He will have to wait for fall, though, when soccer will begin on Saturday mornings!

I love that last picture. So cute.

LOL about Erick finally appreciating what you do. Herding kids is almost as hard as herding cats!

Yay! What did we do with our Saturday mornings before little kids' sports? :)
