I think they both had a good year and now that it is all over, I think I will miss it, at least a little. I can't say that I really enjoyed having to be at the ball fields 4 nights a week, but I love watching my boys play!
One kind of nice thing about this years' teams was that there were several pairs of siblings on the boys' teams. I enjoyed getting to know the parents and the kids became friends hanging out while their brothers were playing ball. D quickly became attached to a little girl on his team named Alyssa. Her older brother was on JW's team and she even has an older sister that LB became good friends with. All these new friendships made things much easier for me since the kids weren't complaining about being bored when they weren't the ones playing.
The main point of this post was just to share some of their pictures from the year, so here they are:
|JW ~ getting ready for his first game with the Regulators|
|D's first game with the Wreckers|
|just waiting to play|
|waiting on their turn to bat|
|the kids loved this aftergame ritual|
|I just LOVE this face!|
|sometimes I would need something to keep my hands busy!|
|listening to Coach Danny|
|leading off of first ... he got pretty good listening to his coaches and stealing bases|
|D preferred hitting the ball off of the tee rather than pitched by the coach|
|trying to steal home|
