At Home on the Field


I'm so proud of this kid! There is nothing in my life that I enjoy more than watching him play baseball. I never thought I'd be a baseball mom-riding back and forth from field to field and actually enjoying watching them play and getting into the games. I thought I'd be sitting there clueless painting my toenails and reading a book from the boredom. It's turned out to be anything but that!

He's had challenges this year in and out of school. What a transition year 3rd grade has been and I can't believe we're only 2 weeks away from surviving it. Nevertheless the baseball field has been his home many a nights-in fact more than I can count. He lives for the sport and I love that we are able to give it to him.

We start tournament play tonight-here's hoping we get a better outcome than last year when they rained out the championship game!!! Here's hoping we make it to the championship game :)

I think Noah as struggled alot this year too (he's in 3rd).

Lucas looks like a pro holding that bat. Isn't it funny how us mama's get so into the game..lol:)

OK so now I see Lucas wasn't holding the bat. He's the catcher! Wow, that job always seemed scary to me when my kids played:)

Aw I hope they make it to the championship too. I bet he would be thrilled if they won!

I'm glad somebody enjoys watching baseball! I know it is terrible because I should want to watch my kiddos play, but I really don't like it! I would much rather watch them play soccer:)
