Opening day of baseball

Yesterday was a long day at the baseball fields. The opening day of Little League baseball began at 8:30 a.m. with a capping ceremony for the boys. Then, both of the boys (who ironically are the same number this year- 9) had team pictures spread out in-between games. Nicholas had a game at 11:15, and Andrew had a double-header, with one game at 1:00 and the next at 3:00. Here are some of the pictures from the big day.

The first two pictures show Andrew playing. He is now in kid pitch, so his games are an hour and a half this year. He had a great hit that led him to second base, and he also did a wonderful job pitching. What great imrovement he has made since last season.

The next two pictures show Nicholas during his game. He did well, too, considering that he was getting sick. When we got home last night he had fever and felt horrible (he woke up with congestion that morning, but an army would not have been able to keep him from playing his first game of the season).

The last picture shows Katie and Andrew practicing during Nick's game. Katie was so excited about going and wanted to straighten her hair, but she woke up too tired to fool with it. She did carefully select her wardrobe, though, in hopes of seeing some of her "friends." Is she really at the age of wanting to hang out at the ballpark to scope out boys? Almost, but not quite (thank you, Jesus). She got bored after Nick's game and went over to her grandmother's house for the rest of the day.

All in all, it was a great day. The weather was beautiful and everything ran smoothly. Cheers to Little League baseball!

Spring is here I reckon, baseball, pollen, daylight savings time, oh and the spawn is just about in full swing at the lakes...the bass are in the shallows and looking to protect their beds of soon to be small fry...

Glad you all had a good day of baseball and weather to boot.
