My Team

T-ball is wrapping up at the end of this month.  I can really tell a major improvement in all 3 kids' skills and attitudes toward the sport this year compared to last year.  Aaron is a coach this time, which I was not thrilled about because I was not about to be a "coach" when he couldn't come due to work conflicts and I absolutely did not want to sit in the dugout with impatient pre-k kids and  kindergarteners.  I'm a teacher .... I only do stuff like that when I get paid!
 Addison is pretty good at the sport.  She is only one of three girls on the team.  Most girls play softball on a separate team in North Henderson.  We've been asked a lot why we didn't sign her up with the girls' team.  It's simple:  I don't want to go to twice as many games.  We have 3 games a week as it is .... that is a lot for us.  I think playing with the boys makes her better anyway. 
 Last year I had to drag Ethan out of the van, onto the field, bribe him, yell at him .... just to get him somewhat involved in the game.  This year he has declared several times, "I quit baseball" when he realizes that we have a game.  But he has gotten out there every game.  He has even hit the ball off a pitch a couple times.  He gets so excited when that happens.  One game when he was on third base, the ball rolled his way and he picked it up and handed to the third baseman before he ran home. 

He does sit in the outfield and play in the dirt which drives his dad crazy.  He takes dirt showers, tasted the dirt once, and even lays down making dirt angels (which did stop a ball once).  He did try to slide home at the last game.  Big progress for him.
 Caden is very serious about baseball.  He has quite the batting stance and runs very fast to the bases.
He is a pro slider.  He is quite brave to do that in my opinion.  He always has the dirt stains on his pants to show it.
I'm very proud of our little team.  I can't believe that next year, we'll be moving on to a new chapter of regular baseball with more than 2 innings, pitching only where they count the fouls and strikes, and keep score.  Yikes, I don't think I'm ready for any of that but I'm sure my team will be!
