Take me out to the Ballgame!

Last year when we put Joe into baseball it was kind of like herding cats.  The kids were really too young.  Joe could have cared less about playing the game... he was doing pirouettes out on the mound and you want me to run the what?  We had to force him to go to the games.  

So this year...  we put him in again, hoping for a different outcome.  And... we were right.  What a difference a year makes.  

 This year... he was ready and excited.  He played and "got" it.  He hit the ball.  He ran the bases.  He caught balls and tagged kids out. 

 Well, this was almost "baseball ready".  :) 
 There was lots of giggling and fun.  The coach's and asst coach's were fantastic. 
 There were secrets told. 
 And they waited their turn's to bat on our ChemSystems buckets. 

 They had a precious mascot. 

 there might have been a bit of crying in baseball...  but it wasn't long lived. 

 Joe got to play "pitcher". 

 They had a great team. 

And they played their last game on Saturday.  Afterwards we had a great team party where they got trophy's and medals.  They all swam and had a great time.  The parents even had such a nice time we decided to play soccer together in the fall.  

Truly... what a difference a year makes.  :)
