Game Ball

I just wanted to post a quick note about Landon's baseball game this weekend.

It was super warm out, and for Landon that typically means his allergies will be awful, and baseball won't be too fun because he'll be itching and miserable...but yesterday was totally his day! He is one of the older kids on his team this year and it really shows (some of the kids are as young as just 4, while Lan will be 7 in July). He is in the coach pitch league, so although the kids don't get to pitch, they still play in that position in order to get the balls that go that direction, which in this league is the majority! LOL! So, anyways, yesterday was Landon's turn to be at the pitchers mound and he was able to not only stop all of the balls that came his way but also got the 3 outs for that inning by touching home plate! He was so proud of himself, and the coaches were really making a big deal out of it as well as the other parents watching the game. For him it was a huge confidence booster!

After the game, the coach always selects a player that did a good job and gives him or her the game ball...of course, he gave it to Landon and he was so embarrassed, but we could all tell he was really just very proud, and we were too.

That would be Home Plate not First Base.

Water Balloons

When my kids told me they didn't know what to do with themselves yesterday I suggested they go outside and play with the water balloons....
